“You can’t spell virus without us” (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 ‘us’” was posted on Twitter by SD (Social Distancing) on November 20, 2013. “You can’t spell virus without us” was posted on Twitter by Thrillhouse on February 23, 2018.

“Hey Corona! You can’t spell virus without us, so why don’t you say you and me go to a graveyard sometime?” was posted on Twitter by Jordan Crumpton on February 24, 2020. “You can’t spell ‘virus’ without ‘us’” was posted on Twitter by Milkman on February 29, 2020.

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

Hey Corona! You can’t spell virus without us, so why don’t you say you and me go to a graveyard sometime? I’ll bring some flowers, get us a luxurious coffin and take you to this cemetery that’s to die for! What do you say?

What if the whole point of coronavirus wasn’t the cure, but the friends we made along the way? You can’t spell “virus” without “us”
