Wishing the coronavirus away

On a bus the other day where there was a guy saying over and over, “Son of a bitch, son of a bitch.” I asked him why he was doing that. He said it kept the bears away.

I asked how he knew that. He said, “You don’t see any bears on the bus, do you?” That’s the same logic for why we’re required to wear masks everywhere.
