“Omicron must come from the Omicrônne region of France, otherwise it’s just sparkling covid”

"Champagne” is sometimes used as a generic term for sparkling wine, but legally, it must come from the Champagne wine region of France. The joke meme was used during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and sometimes included the variants Delta and Omicron.

“It’s only called Corona Virus if it comes from the Corunna region of Indiana, otherwise it’s known as sparkling Covid 19” was posted on Twitter by “The Festive Dungeon Master #BLM” on April 3, 2020. “It’s not Coronavirus unless it came from the Corona region of California. Otherwise it’s just sparkling Covid-19” was posted on Twitter by Stella Lunatic on June 17, 2020. “It’s only Delta variant if it’s from the Delta region of India. Otherwise it’s just sparkling Covid19” was posted on Twitter by Don Homer on July 9, 2021.

“It’s only the omicron variant if it comes from the omicron region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling covid” was posted on Twitter by Jon Pye on December 5, 2021. “Technically, it has to be sourced in the Omicron region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling Covid” was posted on Twitter by Drew Rewold on December 22, 2021. “the CDC says it’s not omicron unless it comes from the Omicrônne region of France, otherwise it’s just sparkling covid” was posted on Twitter by mike cella on December 28, 2021, and this tweet received over 80,000 likes

Similar jokes using this meme include “It’s not a recession unless it’s from the Recession region of France, otherwise it’s just sparkling misery,” “It’s only moaning if it’s from the Moan region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only physics if it’s from the Physique region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling math,” “It’s only poetry if it’s from the Poet region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only Quarantine if it’s in the Quarante province of France. Otherwise it’s just Sparkling Isolation,” “It’s only sour grapes if it comes from the Sourgrape region of France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling whine,” “It’s only turkey if it’s from the farm region of Turkey. Otherwise, it’s sparkling chicken” and “Real Targét has to be from the Targét region of France, otherwise, it’s just sparkling Walmart.”

As the UK tragically hits a record number of Covid-19 deaths, Covid-sceptic-in-chief @toadmeister appears to have deleted all his tweets from last year. 
That’s not surprising.  Here are some of the things he claimed over the last year - a thread.
