I’m thinking of the scene from “Office Space”: “And what is it you would say YOU do here?”

Apparently, a raft of working brunches have yielded up this bold move from the World Health Organization: renaming “monkeypox” as “mpox”.

Wasn’t that Hanson’s big hit? Oh, wait, “mmmBop”.

So, now, what does the “m” stand for in “mpox”?

I mean, I know the way that actual racists use the word “monkey”, but if you’re a scientist or a medical professional, aren’t you kind of telling on yourself here?

Also, are there too many quotation marks in this post?
