Cognitive Dissonance Is Us: Spoons On Your Face and Other Dangers of the Vaccine

While COVID cases are down, huge swaths of people remain vulnerable to deadly new variants thanks to America's "golden age" of perilous, lunatic anti-vaxxers arguing "Trust In God, Not Vaccines" and "The Vaccine Is A Microp-Chip Delivery Tool." Despite states' creative bribes—cash, trucks, Joints For Jabs—they're still declaring at, say, Ohio hearings that the vaccine makes you so magnetic forks stick to you and lookit the pictures on the Internet! A nurse proved it with a key wedged on her (sweaty) neck for a second till it fell off. "Any questions?" she sneered. Umm... yeah.
