Covid Tests
« on: 27 January 2021, 14:28:58 »

Anyone had a Covid test where they stick a cotton bud so far up your nose you think their going to swab your brain?  ???  ::)

Well if you don't fancy that, an alternative has emerged from China (Where else?) where they are starting to carry out anal swabs!  :o  ;D

Apparently these tests are more accurate than nose or throat tests, but can you imagine turning up at your local test centre and have some burly squaddie say to you "Bend over please!"  ;D

Did you say you've already had the vaccine?

If so you are either extremely old (over eighty) or you are a queue jumper.

Which is it? ::) ::) :)

Last time anyone went near my tail end was at the Dr's for a 'digital examination'.  ::)

The Dr was about 6'5" and had hands like spades!  :o  :(  When he finished rummaging around in there, he patted me on the bum, chuckled and said "That feels fine."  :(

Bastard!  ;D

When I had my test I was told not to get out of the car, and turned up in an MX5*.
There could have been a bit of a rummage to get at the "other end" for this test. ;D

*- with a knackered battery, as it turned out. :-[
