News from the Natural World: Ozzy Osbourne doesn’t know what all the fuss is with COVID, his diet never hurt him.
Ozzy Osbourne is a Human English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence during the 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, during which period he adopted the nickname “Prince of Darkness”. Recently he has come out and expressed his dismay at the COVID-19 Pandemic. He is utterly perplexed by humanities rampant spreading of the virus. In addition, he has expressed further dismay at the source of the virus. Once he found out where the virus had originated from he was utterly shocked.
“I ate a bat and it never hurt me so I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. It don’t make any difference if you grill it, BBQ it or boil in a soup. It’s still a bat and they never did me any harm.”
Ozzy Osbourne went on to say that he just didn’t understand how this global pandemic could have been started by a bat. In 1982, Ozzy Osbourne dined on a bat while on stage in Des Moines in front of 5,000 or so witnesses. The bat in Des Moines, however, was most certainly dead, closer to rancid, but Ozzy still took a bite and decapitated it. But Ozzy has since changed his ways. In fact, he went on to say that his views on bats had changed completely over the years. He has come out as a rather unlikely protector of bats.
Ozzy Osbourne Confused by COVID Hysteria
But whilst Ozzy has changed his tune on bats the rest of the world hasn’t. A recent study found a coronavirus with 96% of its genome in common with SARS-CoV-2 (2). This was found in a single species of bat (Rhinolophus affinis) in China. In addition Bats have often been portrayed as a feared blood-sucking creature on TV and movies. What many do not realize is that this mysterious mammal plays an important and beneficial role in the environment. One bat can consume over 3,000 insects every night, keeping insect pest numbers in control. Bats save the farming industry millions of dollars on pesticides every year. Among birds, bees, and other insects, bats are also important pollinators for foods such as bananas, almonds, peaches, avocados, cashews, and other plants. Fruit-feeding bats also play a vital role in reforestation through seed dispersal in their excrement.
But Bats are being pushed to the brink all over the world, and whilst Ozzy has stopped eating them countless other humans have agreed to abandon the grizzly habit.
