    Vaxxed!

  • Soon Lee,

    Delta

    "It was first detected in India in late 2020. The Delta variant was named on 31 May 2021" And it's been part of our (in Aotearoa & globally) daily discussion for a big part of this year.

    Omikron. Different spelling to the variant because it’s the video game with David Bowie and his music in it. Apparently it’s not very good but it’s gotta be better than COVID.

    Lindsay, I've removed your fourth suggestion - read the rules above. You're also supposed to make each nomination in a separate comment, but I guess I can let you off with that.
