The Unbeatable Antibody Squad #1: Covid-19

NEWSREPORTER: AUTHORITIES REPORT YET ANOTHER HOME INVASION PERPETRATED BY A MAN WE NOW KNOW AS COVID NINETEEN FROM THE CORONAVIRUS CRIME FAMILY. HIS REIGN OF TERROR HAS GRIPPED THIS SLEEPY NEIGHBORHOOD SINCE LAST YEAR. IT SEEMS HIS M. O. IS INVADING THE HOME AND MAIMING OR KILLING EVERYONE INSIDE. HE CAN BE EASILY IDENTIFIED BY HIS UNIQUE LEATHER JACKET AND BOOTS.

MEANWHILE IN THE JANE JOHNSON HOME…

GARY: THIS COVID GUY IS OUT OF CONTROL!

STEPH: YEAH. DID BRAIN EVER ORDER THAT mRNA?

GARY: SHE DID! VIA VACCINE SAME-DAY EXPRESS DELIVERY. IT SHOULD BE HERE ANY SECOND NOW.

OUTSIDE…

THE VACCINE DELIVERY WORKER, MS. LIPID NANOPARTICLE, CARRIES THE BOX TO THE DOOR AND RINGS THE DOORBELL.

LIPID NANOPARTICLE: HERE’S THE mRNA MANUAL YOU ORDERED!

GARY: THANK YOU MS…. LIPID NANOPARTICLE.

LIPID: PLEASE, CALL ME LIPPY. LIPID NANOPARTICLE IS MY MOTHER’S NAME.

GARY & STEPH CARRY THE mRNA MANUAL, WHICH DETAILS HOW TO MAKE COVID’S LEATHER JACKET AND BOOTS, TO THE ROOM WHERE THEIR HOUSEMATE, AXL THE RIBOSOME, DOES THEIR SEWING. A THOUGHT COMES TO GARY.

GARY: WAIT! WON’T THAT MANUAL GET MIXED UP WITH THE DNA MANUAL, PERMANENTLY CHANGING THINGS AROUND HERE?

STEPH: THE DNA MANUAL IS IN A SAFE IN THE STUDY. THIS MANUAL WILL GET NOWHERE NEAR IT. BESIDES, THIS IS WRITTEN IN ENGLISH, AND THE DNA MANUAL IS IN JAPANESE, SO THIS WOULD HAVE TO BE TRANSLATED FIRST, MAKING A MIX UP LIKE THAT IMPOSSIBLE

THEY GIVE THE MANUAL TO AXL THE WHO GETS TO WORK MAKING THE CLOTHES.

HOME SECURITY SPOTS THE MANNEQUIN WEARING COVID’S CLOTHES AND DEPLOYS THE ANTIBODY SQUAD TO SUBDUE THE THREAT.

OTHER MEMBERS OF THE SECURITY TEAM RECORD THEIR FINDINGS

MEMORY T CELL [LEFT]: WRITE THAT DOWN! WRITE THAT DOWN!

THEN ONE DAY…

COVID NINETEEN DECIDES TO PAY THE JANE JOHNSON HOME A VISIT

BUT THE HOUSE IS BATTLE-TESTED AND READY FOR HIM. THEY ATTACK HIM IMMEDIATELY.

COVID ANTIBODY SQUAD [ALL]: AND STAY OUT!

COVID JOINS A LONG LIST OF CRIMINALS WHO ARE NO MATCH FOR HOME SECURITY AND ITS ELITE ANTIBODY SQUAD!
