Yoo Hoo Tough Guys

 Lets talk about zombie cicadas.   They are all the rage right now.

Male cicadas infected with a particular parasitic fungus lose their minds and go on a mating frenzy — even as the fungus causes their genitals to rot.  Wicked, huh?

Now lets talk about Covid-19.

 High ACE2 expression in testes suggests the possible existence of gender-specific viral reservoirs.

Another study found that SARS-CoV-2 can be present in the semen of patients with COVID-19, and SARS-CoV-2 may still be detected in the semen of recovering patients.

The virus attaches to ACE2 receptors, starting in your nose.   It then multiplies and drips down into your lungs, which then deteriorate and allow it into your bloodstream.   It then ends up in places with high ACE2 receptor density.   Like your testicles.

 You rocket surgeons still sure you don't want to wear a mask?
