“Social distancing is boring. ‘Exiled for the good of the realm’ sounds much more interesting”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic caused social distancing.

“‘Exiled for the good of the realm’ sounds a lot cooler than ‘self-isolation’ or ‘social distancing’ lol” was posted on Twitter by Tuam on March 15, 2020. “Stop saying ‘self-isolation,’ ‘social distancing,’ and ‘self-quarantine.’ Say, ‘exiled for the good of the realm.’ You’ll feel significantly more badass” was posted on Twitter by Bob Carr later on March 15, 2020.

Stop saying “self-isolation,” “social distancing,” and “self-quarantine.”
Say, “exiled for the good of the realm.” You’ll feel significantly more badass.

I’m not “social distancing.” I’ve just been exiled for the good of the realm. #WordsMatter

I think exiled for the good of the realm is a much better term than social distancing. #COVID19 #QuarantineLife #stayhomechallenge #coronavirus

“Social Distancing” is such a boring way to describe what we’re doing.
“Exiled for the Good of the Realm” sounds MUCH more interesting.
