It was a joke. Like 148 calling the vaccine a clotshot.
I know, I just used it to respond to the horse thing generally. There are so many replies under tweets about Rogan with people who aren't joking and are just angry and ranting about "idiots taking horse medicine".

The fixation on horses and people putting animal stuff into their bodies actually makes an interesting comparison with some of the early anti-vaxx propaganda,

Some people seemed very happy that Joe Rogan tested positive the other day then very angry that he recovered in a few days and said he took Ivermectin and a bunch of other stuff.
I have to admit that pretty much all the people that I did want to die and who got my hopes up by catching it - I'm talking Trump, Bolsonaro, Biscuits etc - at least managed to give the impression of shrugging it off annoyingly easily.

Oh fuck, sorry MB, that was bloody autocorrect, it was supposed to say, er, Rand Paul.

I haven't taken it myself, have no intention of doing so and have no idea whether it has any sort of effect on the virus, but this constant emphasizing of Ivermectin being used to treat horses is ridiculous and, ironically, probably falls under "misinformation" due to being intentionally misleading. You can look the stuff up on Wikipedia and it mentions it's used to treat humans in the second sentence, but there's a relentless campaign to make out that the people taking it are doing the medical equivalent of eating dog food or something.
It's just the nature of the beast; with ketamine, there is absolutely no doubt that it has an effect on people that some clubbers and psychonauts (for want of a better word) enjoy - yet there is a certain type of person who finds it unbelievably hilarious that it is a horse tranquilliser and who is literally unable to refrain from mentioning that, normally at great length, should the subject come up.

It's more than that in this case because it's coming from the media too and there are clearly lots of people wanting to cement the idea that it's exclusively for horses, e.g.

Yes sure it is being done for a reason, as well as by knobheads, I'm just saying you can never get away from knobheads...

But even if you survive, there's still the substantial possibility of massive, irreversible cognitive impairment, of course.

Always a good opportunity to say "Actually it's used more often for cats and dogs than for horses, and as a general anaesthetic, not a tranquilizer. "

Er, if you're me.
