NFL to Coax Unvaccinated Players by Calling Vaccines “Steroids for Your Immune System”

Catalina Fragoso-USA TODAY Sports

NEW YORK, NY – Citing the need for multiple games to be rescheduled due to team-wide COVID outbreaks, the NFL announced it will now try to coax unvaccinated players into getting the shot by calling vaccines "steroids for your immune system."

“Look, if you want to change someone’s mind on vaccines, you gotta speak their language,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, “We just want to hit COVID the way our players hit each other - head on. And the scientists tell us that vaccines teach our immune systems to attack this virus the way CTE attacks our players' brains. We want to make sure everyone is safe so that they can continue to maul each other for the entertainment of our borderline deranged, gambling-addicted, alcoholic fanbase. Is that too much to ask?”

Ownership across the league is on board with the new initiative. In fact, New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, was seen making several trips to personally deliver cases of vaccine vials throughout the back alleys of Boston’s Chinatown. On numerous instances, Mr. Kraft emerged from several facilities after roughly an hour remarkably relaxed and smiling from ear to ear - presumably from thinking about all the players' lives he was helping save (and no other reasons).

Customer Throws Boiling Hot Coffee in Face of Smiling Starbucks Barista and Returns Balance to Universe

GREENWICH, CT – In the wake of historic unionization movements at several Starbucks locations, staff morale was high as issues surrounding understaffing, under-training, low wages, and poor working conditions were on their way to being resolved.

A feeling of euphoria filled the apron of Peter Canter as he started his shift Wednesday afternoon. He even found himself bobbing along as the sound system entered the twenty-seventh time through the “Chipmunks Christmas” album.

Disgusted by the sight of the smiling high school senior, Allison Worthington did what she had to do to restore balance to the universe. After noticing her venti apple crisp macchiato with Lactaid milk was underweight by two syrup pumps, Worthington took off the lid and tossed the 195-degree beverage directly in Canter’s face.

“See, this is what happens when you give the lower class things like ‘a livable wage’ - they get lazy. We’re all above these people . . . even . . . (*throws up in mouth*) teachers,” said Worthington. “And I’ll be damned if I’m going to bring my children up in a world where they treat baristas like human beings.”

Before getting into her Range Rover, Worthington was seen slashing the tires of all the cars parked in spots designated “employees only.”
