Re: Coronavirus Jokes

It prompted a racist response about him having a nanny. Just for clarification - she's his wife.

Re: Coronavirus Jokes

It appears, to me at least, that it was staged.

Re: Coronavirus Jokes

I doubt it. How the kids got dragged out of site or him pushing his child away was...uncooth. Home-office comes with risks, people understand them. No need to shove kids around as if they were disobedient pets.

I love how the youngest one enters the room... Mom took dad's job a bit too seriously. The audience was amused, I think.

I'm sure child protection service has been alerted by now.

Re: Coronavirus Jokes

The funniest thing is that the BBC asked the family for a follow up video and in it, the wife said that she was watching her husband live on a TV in another room and then was truly shocked when she saw her children enter his office.

Unlike the first video, he's not gently pushing them away in this follow up video. Reality check perhaps?

Come on! How could the others keep their straight face?! I would have had a stroke trying to restrain my laughter!

Edit: Which it would have made for an even funnier outcome.

Thank you very much! I hadn't seen that one, and yes, it's making me laugh out loud. Lovely how the lawyer, Rod Ponton, dealt with it later, saying: "It happened to me, I can't deny it, and hope everyone can get a little chuckle, at my expense, today."

Of course the mom took this very seriously, appearing on BBC was perhaps the major career milestone for the dad. He arranged the books on the bed so it looked like a table

I think this was at the very beginning of the global working from home, and they were one of the first people to have kids showing up during the video call, so they got quite stressed. I remember that a couple weeks later the appearing kid(s) became very common, probably driven by the affectionate reaction of the others.

The World Health Organisation announced that dogs cannot contract Covid-19. Dogs previously held in quarantine can now be released. Ergo: WHO let the dogs out?
