Proposed name for novel Coronavirus found in China

Based on the abnormally high levels of a unique amino-acid sequence called "falutin", scientists at the University of Wyoming propose that the novel Corona virus first noticed in late 2019 in China be given the name

The "High-Falutin-Wotan-Hunan virus"

Or, you can just call it Ragtime Cowboy Joe virus

Out in Wyoming
Where the bad men are,
And the only friend to guide you
Is an evening star,
The roughest and the toughest
Man by far
Is Ragtime Cowboy Joe.
He got his name from singin'
To the cows and sheep
They say that every night
He sings the herd to sleep
In a basso voice
So rich and deep,
A-croonin' soft and low.
He always sings
Raggy music to the cattle
As he swings
Back and forward in the saddle
On a horse
That's a syncopated gaiter
There's-a such a funny meter
To the roar of his repeater.
How they run
When they hear his gun
Because the Western folks all know
He's a high-falutin', rootin', tootin',
Son of a gun from Wyoming,
Ragtime Cowboy Joe.
Dressed up ev'ry Sunday
In his Sunday clothes
He beats it to the village
Where he always goes
And ev'ry single gal
In town is Joe's
'Cause he's a ragtime bear.
When he starts a-spieling
On the dance hall floor
No one but a lunatic
Would start a war
Because the wise men know
His forty-four
Would make them dance for fair.

    Everybody was Kung Flu fighting . . . . .
