“If the coronavirus doesn’t take you out, can I?”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic led to some jocular pickup lines. This was posted on Twitter by yikes on March 9, 2020:

“If the coronavirus doesn’t take you out, can I?”

“If CoronaVirus doesn’t take you out.. can I?”—without “the”—was posted on Twitter by Loma on March 11, 2020.

“If the #COVID19 doesn’t take you out, can I ?” was posted on Twitter by “ℙainfully egotistical” on March 12, 2020. “If COVID-19 doesn’t take you out… Can I?” was posted on Twitter by K. Volt later on March 12, 2020.

If COVID-19 doesn’t take you out… Can I?
Is that hand sanitizer in your pocket or are you just happy to be within 6 feet of me?
Since all the public libraries are closed, I’m checking you out instead.
You can’t spell virus without U and I.
Baby, do you need toilet paper because I’m your Prince Charmin.
I saw you from across the bar. Stay there.
Without you my life is empty as a supermarket shelf.
Hey Babe! Can I ship you a drink?
You can’t spell quarantine without “U-R-A-Q-T”.
