Ugh… look I realize I’m immortal and this stupid pandemic doesn’t have an impact on Hell (aside from increased immigration here) but really, if TV is no different from YouTube videos then what’s the point of watching. What’s next? Are they going to start showing people playing video games like that waste of cyberspace called “Twitch”??
Yes, I think we can all relate to the situation and could use a good laugh right now.
