The funniest Covid-19 memes and jokes
[This post may contain affiliate links, please read my full disclosure policy for more info.]
OK, I know a pandemic isn’t a joke, and Covid-19 certainly isn’t the funniest situation, but humans have always been remarkable for finding humour in the direst circumstances and this time has brought out some of the funniest memes and jokes! I guess we’ve learned to use humour as a way to cope when things seem to have gone mental all around us.
This crazy time in our history hasn’t only brought out funny memes, it has brought out the best in us as people too. It’s been amazing to see how communites have rallied around to support one another and protect the vulnerable. There have been a host of adverts emphasising how we stay together by staying apart. Even though we are socially distancing, we are not socially distant as community Facebook groups, friend WhatsApp groups and family Zoom meetings all abound.
The jokes around this time follow similar themes covering topics like weight gain vs exercise, living in lockdown, wearing masks, the toilet roll buying stampede, working from home, home schooling and poking fun at political leaders. None of them would have made any sense to us a year ago, or even six months ago.
Here is a collection of the funniest memes and jokes that have been flying around the digital universe since the whole Covid-19 pandemic kicked off. If we didn’t laugh about it, we’d be crying.
Life with Covid-19
Now we finally have our 2020 vision, and it’s not pretty!
Maybe it’s the stress of being stuck at home or perhaps it’s from not being able to get out to exercise as much, but what ever it is, one of the side effects of this virus is apparently causing us to be hungrier than ever!
Over indulgence hasn’t been limited to food though!
which brings us onto the next topic…
Some parents have been homeschooling for years, now the rest of us know why we love teachers so much.
Or maybe we’ve been practicing ‘unschooling’?
And once the kids get back to school?
Getting to grips with wearing masks certainly has a few challenges…
Cutting your hair has become as hot a topic as knowing where to buy toilet paper.
Our travel plans have had to change as we get used to narrowing our horizons.
Keeping the important parts covered, from your head…
…to your toes.
In the political arena
Good to know our safety is in capable hands!?
South Africa has a unique perspective:
What could we possibly have to worry about??
