The famous American columnist and World Series of Poker (WSOP) commentator Norman Chad has yet again made headlines. You may wonder why ? Norman, tested positive for coronavirus on Monday. His writings have always reflected humor, nonetheless Norman chose to convey the message about the presence of the virus in a funny manner too.
Norman took to Twitter and posted a video with his pet dog named Blue and made the announcement. What could have been a basic tweet about the diagnosis, was actually a video and a conversation of himself and his dog. “Blue is blaming me. She doesn’t feel well. And you know, I’ve got COVID. And she thinks I gave her COVID. I don’t think she has COVID. I think Blue gave me COVID,” mentioned Chad in the video. He also explained that his main symptoms were severe headache and cough, as well as fatigue and he also updated that he will be quarantining for two weeks.

Of course, mentioning it in his style, he kept things light-hearted, explaining that when Blue chews his left arm, she doesn’t taste anything. Chad has always been vocal about his abilities, one of the instances being how he jokes about his poor poker playing ability.
