Today is the first day of India’s full 21-day lockdown declared yesterday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address at 8 pm. The Economic Times quoted him saying “There is a Lakshman Rekha on your doorstep before April 14. Just a move beyond your house is going to carry the coronavirus into your body.
Antonio Muñoz from Mexico went a little better, tied a letter and some money to the collar of his pet chihuahua and sent her across the street to shop and purchase Cheetos!
The note in Spanish read, “Hello Mr. Shopkeeper. Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red ones, they’re too hot. She has $20 attached to her collar. WARNING: She will bite if not treated right. Your front neighbour.”
Many couldn’t believe the dog really went through the challenge. Below are a few Twitter comments.
