You might have noticed that the world is in a bit of a disarray right now, what with fear of coronavirus dominating every hour of the day, with seemingly no levity coming from anywhere.

Surely, there is something to relieve us from this nightmare? A small glimmer of hope that will tell us that all will be ok?

Well, in times of great moral crisis it can take a noble and courageous person to step-forward and restore faith to humanity and thankfully, the human race can thank...former vice presidential nominee and governor of Alaska Sarah Palin?

No, we're not living in 2008 anymore but Palin was back on television screens on Wednesday when she was revealed to be 'The Bear' on the US version of The Masked Singer where she sang the Sir Mix-a-Lot classic 'Baby Got Back.'

That's literally a sentence that we thought we would never write.

Sadly, this brief moment of completely surreal joy was abruptly ended by Fox when Donald Trump decided to make a timely address about the coronavirus and how he will ban all travel from Europe for 30 days from 20 March.

This is the exact moment where that happened. It's like watching something from a dystopian sci-fi movie.

This truly is the darkest timeline.
