"Works Pretty Well, Doesn't It?"

A man is sitting on a park bench, tearing his newspaper into strips and throwing them in the air, when a policeman walks up to him and asks what on earth he is doing. The man replies, "Keeping the elephants away of course!"

The policeman replies, "That's absurd, there are no elephants here!" To which the man replies, "Works Pretty Well, Doesn't It?"

I'm reminded of that old joke when I hear that Gavin Newsom is predicting that 56% of Californians will be infected with COVID-19 in the next two months. When the outbreak is done, so long as the number infected is less than half the state, Newsom will contend that his leadership "Works Pretty Well, Doesn't It?"
