Open Thread Update: 2020 Gift Shop?

Last Sunday we noted the parade of calamities that is 2020, and posed the notion that if 2020 was one for the books it deserved a museum….but what would be in the gift shop….besides hand sanitizer, a mask, and a roll of toilet paper, of course?

A few suggestions were practical, one was sad….and one was brilliant. Marcia G., I salute you!

We’ll leave the comments open for a while, so there’s still time to add your thoughts on what bumper stickers or T-shirts would say in the Year 2020 gift shop.
