Saying ‘uncle’ is an old-school expression to beg your opponent to stop, during an informal wrestling or tickling match … or when being sniffed by Uncle Joe Biden…
In conversation, everywhere in the world, but especially in Australia, it would go something like this:
Wrestling, pinned to the ground, needle in hand, “Say uncle!”, your opponent cries.
“No, never!”, you struggle in response, giving one final burst of energy.
Your muscles give up the ghost and you are now in pain as your opponent pins you harder.
“SAY UNCLE!”, they shout.
You are now in excruciating pain.
They shoot you up and let you go.
What does all this have to do with today’s vlog? Nothing really. Just a reminder that there’s actually a saying for tapping out… submitting… and that there still isn’t anyone or anything that can force you to do this against your will. I agree, it’s not much of a choice to choose between your job and the jab, or seeing your granny in another state/province/country over Jen Psaki’s dead body… but it is still a choice.
And that’s the definitive difference between Covaids vaxxers and non-vaxxers of which you can see more in today’s video

Don’t say uncle!
The people who refuse to tap out on behalf of the strong and the weak, the individual and the collective, have always been among us.
In the Mexican Revolution of the early 1900’s, Emiliano Zapata thought it was better to “die on your feet than to live on your knees”. He told everyone in Mexico that it was better to die and he would die standing than live in servitude under Porfirio Diaz’s dictatorship.
Zapata also said, “I want to die as a slave to principles, not to men.”
Which is a hard quote to beat. So I won’t even try.
