You don't need me to tell you that things are Not Great right now. We're in the midst of a global pandemic. Every five minutes there's a new, dispiriting headline. Businesses are closing. We have to keep a safe distance from everyone (seriously, please stay home if you can). People are getting laid off, this country is run by a clown, et al.
Listen. This shit sucks, to be quite honest. Thankfully, we still have Arnold Schwarzenegger. And the former Governator generously dropped a little joy into our social media feeds this morning with a new video straight from his home featuring two of his best pals: Whiskey the pony and Lulu the donkey. You may remember Whiskey from a previous video in which Arnold comically rode a bicycle alongside the pony. That a series of words describing a thing that actually happened.
For his latest video, Arnold delivers a delightful little PSA reminding all of us to stay home. No bars, no restaurants (the way he says "restaurants" is a work of actual living art, I think), no social gatherings. Just stay home and feed carrots to your little ponies and donkeys. And if you don't have ponies and donkeys, feed carrots to your loved ones or yourself or a doll I guess? Anyway, we could all use something nice today, so thanks, Arnold!
