How One English Family Pwned the Quarantine

“A family from Kent who shared a video of their living room performance of a lockdown-themed adaptation of a Les Misérables song have become a sensation online. Ben and Danielle Marsh and their four children changed the lyrics of “One Day More” to reflect common complaints during the Covid-19 lockdown. They say the video, which has gone viral, was intended to give friends and family a laugh during this stressful time.”

—from The Guardian

God, I love the British, even when they do dumb things like voting for Brexit and paying any attention to Katie Hopkins.

The members of this family are probably descended from people who lived through the Blitz (7 September 1940 – 11 May 1941), Hitler’s attempt to cripple British war production and demoralize the country through air attacks on British cities. It didn’t work, even though more than 40,000 civilians were killed and more than a million houses were destroyed or damaged by the bombing.

“Keep Calm and Carry On” indeed.
