In his latest executive order in the battle to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont altered crowd restrictions in the Nutmeg State, limiting social gatherings to five people.

According to a press release on Thursday evening (March 26), the order reduces the amount of people who can participate in both social and recreational gatherings to no more than five people through at least April 30, 2020, unless modified before that date.

The Office of Governor Ned Lamont said:

This order includes, but is not limited to, community, civic, leisure, or sporting events; parades; concerns; festivals; plays or live performances; conventions and similar activities; except that religious, spiritual, or worship gatherings will remain subject only to the prohibition of 50 persons or more. This does not apply to government operations, private workplaces, retail establishments, or other activities that are not social or recreational gatherings.

 

I'm already in violation before I leave the house with four kids, a wife and my father-in-law, all living together. This decree had me thinking that five is a great gathering number. Some of the best times I've ever had in my life were being one of a group of five or six people. Frankly, when you gather in groups larger than this, you're expecting too much, and the experience rarely lives up to those expectations.

So with that, let's play a game. You have five celebrities (dead or alive) to pick to be isolated with, who do you choose?

Before "Johnny Funny Jokes" chimes in with "I'd prefer not hang with a dead celebrity," keep in mind that this is all fictional. It's a fantasy, and in this fantasy the dead are alive. That way, we can pick whoever we want, save the dead jokes.

Now that that is out of the way, this the easiest list I've ever written and all my celebrities happen to be alive. All I had to do was be honest with myself and the list created itself:

Pick your five -- GO!
