“Who is a Covid-19 patient’s favorite composer?"/"Drycoughsky.”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic made some jokesters think of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), who they renamed “Drycoughsky.”

Margot wrote on Twitter on March 14, 2020:

“Ladies and gentleman, 10yo has just made up a joke. Please let him know how funny you found it. Be kind, he’s 10!

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (English: /tʃaɪˈkɒfski/ chy-KOF-skee; Russian: Пётр Ильи́ч Чайко́вский, tr. Pëtr Ilʹič Čajkovskij, IPA: [pʲɵtr ɪlʲˈjitɕ tɕɪjˈkofskʲɪj] (About this soundlisten); 7 May [O.S. 25 April] 1840 – 6 November [O.S. 25 October] 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic period. He was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, which was bolstered by his appearances as a guest conductor in Europe and the United States. He was honored in 1884 by Tsar Alexander III and awarded a lifetime pension.

As an elementary music teacher, I appreciate this joke. You have to know something about music to come up with it. Did Drycoughsky write “Peter and the Virus”?
