A shot in the arm is a metaphor for something that gives you instant energy and renewed enthusiasm. I literally got a shot in the arm last week with the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. It didn’t do anything for my energy, but it certainly made me more enthusiastic about the year to come—and I’m a curb-your-enthusiasm kind of guy.

Once everyone gets vaccinated and the virus is tamed, the world will return to the normal we all used to endlessly whine about. But now it will seem like paradise! Hallelujah! I suspect that will last about a week and then in a few years we’ll be nostalgic for lockdowns. C’est la vie. Still, a hell of a lot better than C’est la mort.
In any case, the vaccines will soon be available pretty much everywhere…

The rollout of the vaccines means cartoonists are rolling out vaccine cartoons. But don’t worry: we did a double-blind control study with these cartoons and no one died laughing. Enjoy and view again in twenty-one days for greatest efficacy.
I strongly advise you to get vaccinated. And you don’t believe in vaccines… what can I say except that I hope you don’t fall off your flat Earth.
Yours in Good Humor,
