It’s been said before but we are stuck in the absolute dumbest timeline. So it’s no surprise that the reactions to the coronavirus pandemic have ranged from dumb to dumber. Whether it’s people advocating the protective benefits of drinking bleach or refusing to wear masks or practice social distancing, we aren’t as evolved as we like to think.
One of the dumbest and most mockable conspiracy theories to emerge during the crisis is the theory that posits that 5G cellular signals are the cause of the coronavirus pandemic and not, you know, the coronavirus. As the *thinking* goes it’s all a huge government conspiracy to control the masses of course, as these things always are. (This is, of course, not true.)
It’s hard to think of a theory that deserves to be mocked by memes more than this one so let’s get to it.
