Get A Grip, People.

 The World Health Organization (WHO) wants to change the name of monkey pox.

Monkeypox is poised to get a new name, the World Health Organization says, after scientists recently criticized the current name as "discriminatory and stigmatizing." The researchers say it's also inaccurate to name versions of the virus after parts of Africa.

Really?  Which part of Africa is Monkey? 

The WHO is working with experts "on changing the name of monkeypox virus, its clades and the disease it causes," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing on the outbreak on Tuesday.

Don't these bastards have anything better to do?  Who knew that there are experts on name-change?   And, how might one get that job?  I might like to apply.

Well maybe they can get the guys who are renameing military bases and geographic features in the US as their experts!

"They" have lost their damn minds. So afraid of offending someone, that they can't do anything worth while.

I have a better idea.
