COVID Marketing Team #Fail

What inspired the medical community to use Greek letters for the Covid-19 variants? Here’s a better idea: license the names of thrash metal bands. That would be a win-win: the record labels would reap massive new sales on old inventory, and how fun and thrilling would it be for the customer to face the Cannibal Corpse, Mayhem, and Slayer variants! I mean it still sucks to get sick, but I personally think it would take the sting out of things to know that you got hit with, say, the Pantera virus.
