None of this makes sense to me. Now, I'm no expert but wouldn't make sense that if you're in a pool with someone, it wouldn't matter if you're six feet or ten feet away from them? You're sharing a bath basically at that point, right? Well, I don't know why I'm attempting to bring logic to the twilight zone that is Florida. In Orlando, there's a theme park called Gatorland (because duh) and they've officially reopened for Memorial Day Weekend. However, they want you to be "safe" at all times. So, to enforce the rules, they've brought in the social distancing skunk ape. I'm making literally none of this up. Staff will be wearing masks. There will be signs to remind you to stay socially distant. But their muscle? Some sort of deep south, Winnie The Pooh-styled Sasquatch. If that wasn't enough, he's available for meet and greets as well (from a distance of course).
