The coronavirus pandemic is still working its way around the world but loads of countries are loosening lockdown regulations, so we’re stuck in a weird and confusing situation (we blame 2020). In times like these, a dose of good humor is great for recharging your batteries—laughter helps us see the positives in tough situations like the one we’re in now.

We want to keep your spirits up and to boost your mood this week, so Bored Panda has collected the freshest and funniest coronavirus jokes. Scroll down, upvote your faves, and let us know in the comments which jokes you loved the most and why. We’re huge fans of the corona jokes that people made during the quarantine, so be sure to check our previous posts here, here, and here. Now that’s a lot of jokes!

There are 3 camps of people when you ask whether it’s okay to make coronavirus jokes. There are those who think that comedy is incredibly important during difficult times. There are those who think that we shouldn’t joke about sensitive topics. Lastly, there are those in the middle who believe that humor has a place during the pandemic but that we shouldn’t overstep our bounds. But what do comedy professionals and experts have to say about this? Scroll down for Bored Panda's interview with comedy writer and comedian Ariane Sherine.

"I think it’s essential to joke about coronavirus because humor is a release mechanism to help us cope during dark times," Ariane told Bored Panda.

"Shared humor also helps us bond with one another. Lockdown would be very gloomy indeed if we couldn’t laugh about our predicament!" she added.

Ariane also told us that her go-to funny movie during the lockdown is 13 Going on 30 (released in 2004 and starring Jennifer Garner). "It’s really heartwarming and the Thriller scene is hilarious. It always lifts my spirits when I’m feeling low," the comedy writer said.

True. It's quite painful to invest so much time and effort into something, only to have it rejected for no logical reason by a random stranger who barely finished high school...

Meanwhile, according to Dr. Peter McGraw who heads the University of Colorado Boulder’s Humor Research Lab, if we’re constantly plugged into the newsfeed and frantically search for the latest breaking news about the virus, this just increases the scariness of the pandemic.

“A bit of comedy—whether it be through your Instagram feed, through a Netflix comedy special, or calling up your friend who's pretty good at making jokes in the face of tragedy—is not only a good way to distract yourself from what's going on, but it's also a good way to delight yourself,” Dr. McGraw said. So we shouldn’t feel guilty for laughing. After all, the alternative is to be in a constant state of low-key panic. And that’s not helping anybody: not your family, not your friends, and least of all you.

McGraw stressed that social media “is a mess” during the lockdown, so it’s best to unplug and unwind. Preferably, with a bunch of funny movies, comedy stand-up shows, and books that make you chuckle. “Take a little bit of a break. You certainly deserve it."

He is an asshole. HOWEVER, last I checked this was still a free, capitalist country. And maybe his county has a law he's breaking by reopening, but this guy makes NASA's rockets now. Pretty sure the US govt doesn't care about Alameda County, or they would've made sure Musk didn't test rockets right next to people's houses. Totally not ok that he can put people's windows at risk of shattering. But I am pretty sure he WON'T get arrested.
