COVID Conference Bingo

What? Did you think the COVID-19 jokes would stop at General Conference?

If you'd played this bingo board during Conference, I doubt you would have won anything. The coronavirus was wasn't mentioned much by name. There were, however, a number of talks that offered solace from our current situation if you listened closely enough.

Today's gag comes from faithful reader Ryan V.

A Loud, Crashing Noise

Perhaps during General Conference some people felt the Holy Ghost as a loud, crashing noise. It was certainly a moving experience for me.

Once again, Kevin Beckstrom has granted us a peek into the single most entertaining copy of conference notes you'll find anywhere on the net. Thanks, Kevin!

Shelter in Place

Today's gag concludes my very own COVID-19 Countdown to Conference next week we'll return to our regular posting schedule. Thanks for indulging me. I'll admit it was quite a challenge coming up with a comic every day for two and a half weeks,* but I'm pretty satisfied with how this turned out. I think it laughing helps.

Ultimately, we have no idea how long the coronavirus is going to continue to upend our lives--and in some cases ravage our lives (through sickness, employment and finances, or even death)--but no matter how bad it gets, I hope that the coming two weekends will offer some source of comfort.

General Conference finally begins tomorrow! I doubt there has every been a General Conference more anticipated in a generation. And the following weekend is Easter and its reminder of Christ's atonement and resurrection. COVID-19 is temporary. Christ is eternal!

*Of course, my friend and ward cartoonist in a ward somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, Kevin Beckstrom, has had no problem posting something everyday for over ten years now!

Hand Washing

The direction is to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. The CDC recommends humming "Happy Birthday" twice to ensure that you're washing long enough. I'm sure washing your hands for even longer won't harm anyone.

Missionary Quarantine

If nothing else, this generation of teenage boys has been preparing for shelter at home for years now!

Love at Home

For those of us fortunate enough not to be personally touched by COVID-19--either through illness or from loss of income--spending every waking hour with our loved ones in our home might be one of the most challenging aspects of the current pandemic.

Crazy Times

Reading Saints can be strangely therapeutic during these crazy times. It helps remind us that when it comes to living through challenging times, we are not unique.
