Babylon Bee pokes fun at Missouri, Kansas over vaccine enticements

The satirical website Babylon Bee released a story on what states are giving away to encourage residents to get vaccinated.

Included on list, which pokes fun at all 50 states, are “Free tickets to the MLB All-Star game if you live in Georgia” and  a “Chance to play starting shortstop for the Kansas City Royals” for Missouri residents.

And, if you live in the nation’s capital, you get to become your own state.

If you’re asking, neither Missouri nor Kansas actually have enticements for those who get vaccinated.

Ohio, however, did announce a state lottery that will award five residents $1 million. To enter you have to show proof of vaccination.
