It’s The CCP

A dialogue.

‘I’m telling you, my brain isn’t working like it did before. Ever since the virus attacked.’

‘The virus didn’t attack you. Viruses don’t attack people. They infect them.’

‘Yeah well, my brain is soup.’

‘I know, I know. Foggy brain. I’ve been reading about it. It’s all made up. An illusion.’

‘It’s not an illusion. It’s the Chinese. I think they’ve given me a series of mini-strokes. Donald Trump let it slip in a press conference. My brain is being zombified from the inside out.’

‘The Chinese! How have they got in your head?’
