“Without you, my life is as empty as the supermarket shelf”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic caused panic buying, and many supermarket shelves were empty. A pickup line joke was posted on Twitter by Poeticgirl86 on March 19, 2020:

“#SocialDistancingPickUpLines Without you my life is as empty as the supermarket shelf.”

“Without you my life is as empty as a supermarket shelf”—“a’ instead of “the”—was posted on Twitter by Jenny on March 26, 2020.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
