Munchkinland – According to Munchkinland coroner Dweebnic McPhallanx III, the widely-despised Wicked Witch of the East died of complications related to COVID-19. At an impromptu press conference where the old bat’s corpse was prominently displayed, the 712-year-old McPhallanx stated, “As coroner, I must aver, having thoroughly examined her, that she’s not only merely dead she’s really quite sincerely dead.”
As the county seat of the Land of Oz, Munchkinland officials reserved the right to ensure that the daft shrew from hell — who was frequently seen without a mask — was legally, morally, ethically, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably, and reliably dead.
The coroner’s announcement put to rest a widely-held conspiracy theory that the death of the vicious hag had to do with a frigging house landing on her dome.
Though Munchkindland was previously thought to be free of the virus, the coroner’s determination meant an automatic return to the lockdown policies imposed last March by the city’s absolutely adorable public health officials. Mayor Alperoo Vercingetorix IV added that in addition to a reimposition of mask requirements and social distancing mandates, Munchkin children would have to remain in their nests until further notice.
The old battle-ax’s funeral arrangements have not yet been made public, though the mayor assured the citizenry that “It’ll be a real rager.”Published in
