The Best Memes, Jokes and Tweets About 2020 (So Far)

They say that humor can sometimes be a good way to deal with things.

Especially when it comes to things we can’t really control — queue the coronavirus pandemic — sometimes a little laugh can go a long way. After all, we don’t have many options beyond just getting the survival kits prepped and living through it.

Of course, a global pandemic isn’t funny. How could anyone write jokes at a time like this? But in times of crisis, when we are frightened and don’t know what’s going on, humans have historically turned to comedy.

It seems silly (no pun intended), I know. But humor is actually a release mechanism that helps us cope during dark times.

I think we could all use a laugh or two right now — and probably a glass of wine. I mean, so far, 2020 has been the longest year ever, and it’s only halfway done.

Look, we’ve already started the new decade with a global pandemic, massive wildfires, an impeachment, swarms of locusts, protests, and killer hornets… I don’t even want to know what the rest of the year is going to hold for us.

I recently saw someone selling commemorative 2020 Christmas tree ornaments. They were dumpsters on fire.

So, what are we going to do? Keep on rollin’ through 2020, I guess. But there’s nothing that says we can’t boost our sanity with a little humor, right?

Here are some of the best memes and other jokes about how rough this year has been — so far, at least.
