Dr. Fauci reminds everyone that we will only have to wear masks until humans evolve organic face coverings at birth

fauci
After causing an uproar for constantly extending how long masks will be required, Dr. Fauci has finally provided much some needed answers. In a recent interview, Dr. Fauci has once and for all explained that we will only need to wear cloth masks until humans evolve them.

"As soon as humans naturally evolve an organic nose and mouth covering at birth, then we can start dialing back on the mask mandates." clarified Dr. Fauci. "This isn't going to be some endless, arbitrary policy. We have clear, scientific measures informing us when masks are obsolete."

"Well that is a huge relief!" said Cathy Pittman. "We just have to trust the science and everything will be better in no time! I was starting to think the masks were going to become permanent parts of our lives!"

In a statement, Dr. Fauci gave his estimate for when he thinks that the evolved facemasks might become a reality. "We're working with a purely scientific, definitive timetable now. We just need exactly right at about 2-5 millionish years give or take to probably evolve facemasks for the most part."

When pressed further, Dr. Fauci continued by saying, "I know that time will be here before you know it, but I don't think life should start returning to normal until humans are born with at least 2 naturally occurring face masks. So just another quick 5 million years!"

Man who doesn't believe in settled science on gender, unborn babies or economics claims 'science on climate change is settled'

man glasses hipster woke
Local man Trevor J. Gavyn pleaded with his conservative coworker to "believe the science on climate change," though he himself does not believe the science on the number of genders there are, the fact that unborn babies are fully human, and that socialism has failed every time it has been tried.

"It's just like, the science is settled, man," he said in between puffs on his vape. "We just need to believe the scientists and listen to the experts here."

"Facts don't care about your feelings on the climate, bro," he added, though he ignores the fact that there are only two biological genders. He also hand-waves away the science that an unborn baby is 100% biologically human the moment it is conceived and believes economics is a "conservative hoax foisted on us by the Illuminati and Ronald Reagan."

"That whole thing is, like, a big conspiracy, man," he said.

The conservative coworker, for his part, said he will trust the science on gender, unborn babies, and economics while simply offering "thoughts and prayers" for the climate.

Not satire: Chinese prof argues ancient western civilizations were faked to demean China

A Chinese professor claims that the Egyptian pyramids, the Parthenon, and other remnants of ancient civilizations in the West, were all faked by Western scholars in order to fabricate an ancient history, and diminish the glory of China.

Hong Kong News outlet Hong Kong 01 is just one of many Chinese language media who reported on the farcical claims after Professor Huang Heqing broadcast one of his lectures live to the internet recently.

While ultranationalist conspiracy theories are not rare in China (or indeed, in any other country), what makes this story even more bizarre is that Huang teaches in the School of Arts and Archeology at Zhejiang University - one of the oldest, most selective, and prestigious universities in China.

Huang Heqing stated in his lecture that from the 19th to 20th centuries, the West was rampantly forging historical and cultural relics, and spending huge sums of money everywhere from the Mediterranean to India, fabricating fake ancient relics.

The Pyramids of Khufu, and the Great Sphinx of Giza, were made of concrete, and constructed in the 19th century, Huang claims.

"A well-known French chemist and material scientist conducted physical and chemical analysis on the Khufu pyramid in the 1980s, and confirmed that other than a small amount of natural stone, it mostly consisted of concrete," says Huang, referring to the controversial theories of Joseph Davidovits, who posits that the Egyptians built the pyramid using a limestone-based cement invented thousands of years before the Romans invented concrete.

Journalists around the nation erupted in boisterous cheers when White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, announced that the gulags will be run by a woman of color.

The announcement came as a result of an unscripted moment when a reporter relayed to Psaki a question from a concerned citizen back home, "What is President Biden doing for my small business?"

Psaki didn't miss a beat showing how clearly prepared she was for such a hard-hitting question.

Biden defends Hitler's concentration camps: 'Nazi Germany just had different norms'

joe biden
In a recent presidential town hall on CNN, Biden appeared to excuse the treatment of Jews in Hitler's concentration camps due to "differences in cultural norms."

"Listen, folks-- I was just on the phone with Adolf and I was like, 'Hey, man! You know that whole thing with the camps? You and I may not see eye to eye on those things. That's OK, Jack! Different norms!'"

"The thing that struck me about President Biden's town hall -- aside from a few completely innocent and harmless missteps -- is just how empathetic and compassionate our new president is," said CNN Anchor Don Lemon. "Frankly, I would rather have a president who defends concentration camps with compassion than one who attacks them with a mean and nasty tone. That's really what matters here."

Side hustle: Babylon Bee awards staff writing position to Joe Biden - 'it's more efficient'

Joe Biden

The Bee's newest staffer
The Bible tells us to work smarter, not harder. Or, better yet, don't work at all if you can help it. You can look it up. It's in the Proverbs somewhere.

That's why we're announcing today that we will simply be republishing everything Joe Biden says word for word rather than spending a lot of time and effort writing satire.

We at The Babylon Bee realized we were spending all this time trying to satirize Joe Biden when, frankly, he just can't be satirized. He's doing all the hard work for us with statements like "You ain't black!" and, of gun violence, that "150 million people have been killed since 2007."

Every day is a real grind when we arrive at the sprawling Babylon Bee headquarters, settle in on our throne of Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and boot up the ol' PC to check what Biden said over the past 24 hours. We're tired of trying to out-parody things like "I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun and the kids used to reach in the pool and rub my leg down and watch the hair come back up again" and "Corn Pop was a bad dude."

Like, what do you do with that? Seriously. Go ahead. Try to satirize it. Anything you do just doesn't have that perfect mix of absurdity and reality that makes satire work so effective at communicating truth. So we're throwing in the towel.

We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Joe Biden for being such a great satirical performance artist. You're the real hero, Joe. The people really need comedy in a time like this, and you're doing a great job. Keep it up!

Finally, laugh at these hilarious Babylon Bee headlines from our new best satirist, Joe Biden:
  • Biden: 'Poor Kids Are Just As Bright As White Kids'
  • Joe Biden Says All Men And Women Are Created By You Know The Thing
  • Presidential Candidate Nibbles On His Wife's Fingers
  • Joe Biden: 'I'm Going To Beat Joe Biden'
  • 'Go To Joe 30330' Says Joe
  • Biden Tells Campaign Rally 'We Choose Truth Over Facts'
  • Joe Biden Calls Iowa Man 'Fat' And A '[FLOWERBED] Liar'
You can look forward to lots more content coming from your new favorite Babylon Bee writer any moment now.

Secret Service puts finishing touches on Biden's presidential scooter, 'Chair Force One'

Chair Force One
As part of the transition to a new administration, the Secret Service is working hard to make the White House safe and secure for the incoming 78-year-old president. One of the most important pieces of hardware in the White House will be Biden's presidential scooter, affectionately dubbed "Chair Force One."

"This will be one of the most advanced pieces of geriatric technology the world has ever seen," said Secret Service Director James Murray. "With the ability to go from 0 to 3 miles per hour in 12 seconds, it will completely encase Mr. Biden in a shell of bulletproof glass as he sits in the back seat and a trained agent drives him around. It's also equipped with Life Alert technology and a handy basket for his daily meds."

Sources say the technological marvel of handicap design will also have built-in teleprompters to help Biden know what words he's supposed to say next during everyday conversation.

"So, you go ahead and stack spaghetti sauce at a store and a supermarket," said Biden, visibly excited about the new scooter. "You control the guy or the woman who runs the ... or brings out the carts on a forklift. What happened?"

He then growled at the Secret Service agent driving him around and growled "GET OFF MY CHAIR!" before kicking the poor agent out of his seat and to the ground.

Jacinda Ardern calls to nuke New Zealand after UK variant found - 'It's the only way'

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has ordered the army to source nuclear bombs from somewhere and detonate them in key locations in a last-ditch attempt to wipe out covid-19 for good, WWN has learned.

The new measure comes after three people were found to be infected with the highly contagious UK variant, initially forcing the PM to call a 72-hour lockdown, before then issuing an all-out nuclear strike.

"It's the only way to beat the virus," the 40-year-old leader told citizens in an emotional televised address, showing a map where strategically placed nuclear weapons will have to be detonated. "This will be quick and painless for all of us, but more importantly, it will stop covid-19 for good which will be a massive win for us in the long run".

Trump's power doubles after absorbing impeachment attack!

'DoubleTroubleTrump'
"It's over, Pelosi! You've lost!" shouted a cackling Trump as he and the Speaker of the House hovered above the White House, locked in mortal combat. "You have no cards left to play!"

Pelosi, ragged and weary from battling her archnemesis for three years, managed a weak smile.

"Oh, I think I might have one card up my sleeve," she growled through clenched dentures. "Progressives, assemble!" Down on the ground, something incredible happened: brave Resistance warriors from all over began to assemble and scream at the sky, their powers adding to her own. Pelosi's eyes began to glow blue as she was filled with all the power of every outraged progressive across the land.

"Impeachment attack, go!!!" she cried as she unleashed a blue energy beam at Trump's chest -- a desperate, final gambit to impeach him forever and remove him from office.

But Pelosi was horrified as Trump only absorbed the attack, feeding on its power.

"Ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" he cackled as he gained more and more power from the impeachment attack. "Foolish mortals! Every attack only makes me stronger!"

Trump then drew on all his newfound power to create chaos at the Iowa primaries, cause himself to be acquitted, and force Pelosi to have a mental breakdown, all in the same week. Unfortunately, he then tweeted something dumb, his only weakness. But Democrats then responded to his dumb tweet with even dumber stuff, causing his power to grow even more!

Comment: An undisputed 'first'! Trump has now achieved the unique title of 'Most Acquitted'!
President Donald Trump made history once again today after being acquitted in his second Senate impeachment trial. He is now the most acquitted president in American history.

Donald Trump issued a statement regarding this incredible honor:
"I have been completely and totally cleared of all wrongdoing in this pathetic witch hunt sham impeachment trial. I am now the most acquitted president ever -- even more than Clinton. No president has ever been acquitted more than I have. Will I get the credit? Probably not, because of the fake news media. I am looking forward to continuing our MAGA movement together for many more acquittals to come!"
According to sources, Republican Senators cheered and high-fived each other, knowing they had just outsmarted all the Democrats into bestowing such an unprecedented badge of honor on the former president.

"Oh no! What have we done?!" wailed Senator Amy Klobuchar, suddenly realizing the Senate had given Trump yet another impressive world record, making him the subject of trivia questions for the next two centuries.

According to sources, Clinton will be handing over his giant gold "most acquitted ever" trophy to Trump in Mar-a-Lago next week.

'I'm not a cat': When Zoom filters go wrong

Screen capture of Zoom court hearing gone awry.
A lawyer in Texas became a viral sensation on Tuesday after accidentally activating a cat filter during a court hearing over Zoom.

Footage of the incident, which went viral on Twitter, shows attorney Rod Ponton struggling to deactivate the filter while appearing as a young feline.

Judge Roy B. Ferguson can be overheard attempting to help Ponton, to no avail.

"Mr. Ponton, I believe you have a filter turned on in your video settings," Ferguson says.

In perhaps the best moment of the video, Ponton attempts to reassure the judge that he is in fact not a cat.

"I've got my assistant here, and she's trying to remove it but uh... I'm prepared to go forward with it," Ponton says. "I'm here live. I'm not a cat."

The video has already been viewed more than 1.6 million times and counting.
