Clubs and clubbers held 'farewell' parties ahead of stricter Covid-19 measures and got slammed by the public (and a Minister and at least 1 doctor). So should people socialize at all if Singapore isn’t in lockdown? And can business be blamed for wanting to squeeze out some revenue? Amidst the current pandemic, the world also needs to brace itself for a condom shortage ‘cos of manufacturing plants closing down. Especially in Malaysia, who produce 1 out of every 5 condoms in the world. Whaaaaaaaaat.

The New York Times wrote about civil rights plummeting worldwide as govts mine info to curb Covid-19. But does privacy even matter now? And Malaysia’s world-infamous Bomoh (a traditional shaman / mystic healer) is back with his shenanigans. But could there be something positive about it?

Melissa Chen, a SG-born activist in the US famous for helping Amos Yee get asylum, faced backlash this week for using a picture of a local wet market in an article about Chinese wet markets. Why? In another picture that pissed off a bunch of people, a parody Facebook page called “NUS Atheist Society” posted a pic of a Quran next to a Bible with the caption “For use during toilet paper shortages". And now they’re being investigated by the police. But is that fair?

Self-quarantine? Social distancing? And what the hell is herd immunity? We talk through all these along with our own thoughts and worries, so hopefully it’ll be as cathartic for you as it was for us. ‘Cos sometimes you just gotta vent, right? So enjoy!

Jonathan Mok, an SG student in London, went viral around the world after he posted images of his punched-up eye after being jumped by a group of strangers in a coronavirus-related racist attack. And his is just one of many hate-attacks around the world. WTF is up with attacks like this? 'Cos they suck big time. On the flip side, everyone has seen at least one Covid-19 meme. With serious incidents happening daily, is it too soon to poke fun at the disease?

A 25-min audio clip of Minister Chan Chun Sing spewing Singlish and scolding the “idiotic” hoarders of Singapore leaked online. Some people loved it, some didn’t. But did he go too far? Or is he “the Ah Beng” we deserve? Elsewhere, XiaXue ripped into the media for glorifying obesity. Does she have a point or is the Queen of Controversy at it again? Joining us is the ever-eloquent Munah Bagharib, who is also one of the stars of our recent TV show “She’s a Terrorist and I Love Her”.

Come April 2020, ALL motorised PMDs will be banned from footpaths (even hoverboards *gasp*) and users might even need to take theory tests! But are people as triggered or have we all moved on from anything PMD-related? On the other side of the world, Shakira and J Lo rocked the Superbowl Halftime show but people questioned the need for all the gyrating, crotch-grabbing, pole dancing and grinding (of people). We share our thoughts along with those of Caitanya Tan, our guest for this week (she’s also the co-star of our TV series so show some love).

But is it a xenophobic policy? In other news, the Singapore Sports School soccer team  beat Assumption Pathway 32-0 in a B Division match, and the internet was divided. But are we?
