Some people might frown upon a list of jokes that seem to be making light of the most serious issue currently facing mankind (aside from climate change): the coronavirus pandemic. Those people probably don’t have a sense of humor, or maybe just don’t resort to humor and self-degradation as a coping mechanism for the horrors of the world. It’s a miracle they get through their day to day, honestly.
We aren’t those people! In the wise words of comedian Karen Kilgariff, “A lot of people in this world deal with the horrifying sh—t in the world by laughing, by using humor by letting off the steam.” And also, “we don’t think loss is funny but life is sh—t and you have to laugh at things.” So here’s us, laughing at things.
Stay inside, read your coronavirus memes, and wash your hands, people.
Day 1: I have stocked up on enough non-perishable food and supplies to last me for months, maybe years, so that I can remain in isolation for as long as it takes to see out this pandemic
Day 1 + 45 minutes: I am in the supermarket because I wanted a Twix
