In times of stress people like to cope by making jokes. Here are 15 of our favorite coronavirus memes.
To say that 2020 went off the rails would be an understatement. Five months into the year and we have been struck with a pandemic, great economical uncertainty, a health crisis, a looming presidential election and an invasion of murder hornets.
Unlike previous years which had bad moments sprinkled in with good ones, 2020 has been a succession of days where each news headline is trying to top the other. It’s like the person who’s writing the script of a dystopian movie is running out of ideas and is now just reaching for conflicts that are worse than the last.
The world’s current situation is terrifying, but people have to find ways of coping; humor seems like one of the healthiest ways to do so. While there’s no way of escaping what’s going on or of tuning out the sound of the ambulance alarms, there are ways of finding relief in laughter, even if it’s only for a couple of seconds.
Here are 15 of the funniest coronavirus memes and jokes we’ve seen online:
