“You can’t spell virus without U and I” (pickup line)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in some jocular pickup lines, but a popular one had been cited in print earlier. “You can’t spell Virus without I” was on YouTube on April 11, 2013. “You can’t spell VIRUS without U and I” was posted on Twitter by leftsider on July 20, 2016.

“So who’s tryna go into quarantine with me bc you cant spell virus without u and i” was posted on Twitter by rhiangrin on March 13, 2020. “Can’t Spell Virus Without U & I. So Wassup Babe?” was posted on Twitter by Sudhahahahanshu on March 15, 2020.

“You can’t spell virus without U and I #SocialDistancingPickUpLines” was posted on Twitter by Max Lederman on March 19, 2020.

“You can’t spell virus without us” is a similar pickup line. “You can’t spell quarantine without ‘u r a q t‘“ is another pickup line joke.

This is my last batch of virus videos for now, because I’ll be moving to Ballrace because I’m making “Ballrace - Shortcuts, Stunts, Tricks HD” next.

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?
