Everyone is involved in a viral experiment these days. The goal is to find out whether laughter is the best medicine for the coronapocalypse, or whether a meme a day can keep the quarantine blues away. And people do what it says.

But there are no rules when it comes to modern internet humor, except that it has to make you cringe, lol, or die laughing. In fact, the crying laughing emoji has reportedly been the most used one on social media in the past few months. A coincidence? Doubt it.

From absurdist millennial puns-intended to apocalyptic parody memes, Bored Panda has collected the best weekly corona jokes. And for those who just jumped onto the bandwagon, check out our previous compilations: part 1part 2part 3part 4part 5part 6, and part 7.

I don’t even know how they can get away with such greed. Corporate bailouts don’t save you from eviction, illness, or starvation. They can scream for the best parts of capitalism, and flock for shelter under socialism whenever it benefits them.

As we’re well into the crisis now, the jokes and memes are getting more twisted. Dark coronavirus humor is often funnier and somehow resonates better with people.

Interestingly, a taste for black humor could be an indicator of greater intelligence levels, according to this study published in Cognitive Processing. The psychologist Ulrike Willinger led an experiment which showed that participants who appreciated darker jokes expressed less aggression than those with a conventional sense of humor. Plus, the former group was found to have higher levels in verbal and nonverbal intelligence.

Meanwhile, comedian Ken Cheng believes that joking about any risqué topic within comedy elicits the same answer. “Which is, that it depends,” Ken wrote in an opinion piece for Metro. But he doesn’t see anything wrong with talking about the current crisis in a humorous way. “Of course there will be some camps who think no serious topic should be made fun of, that even mentioning coronavirus in a humorous context is making light of a tragic situation,” but he added, “I don’t subscribe to this.” If humor is used skillfully, it can bring shelter to whatever the situation would be while still understanding its severity.

While the rest of the world works to revise history to minimize U.S. involvement in developing a vaccine. Someone like Daniel Craig or Pierrce Brosnan will play a badass government agent who uncovers the CEO whose corporate conspiracy started the pandemic.

Maybe if the producer would cover the entire planet, or the major countries, and tell an overlapping story. Americans probably won't find the cure, and many other societies will have handled the crisis much better. With the "leadership" we're suffering through right now, I'd be dismayed, ashamed if our government got any credit for a cure.

If something did come out it would probably be more along the lines of either the First Line workers or the acts of kindness during Stay Home Stay Safe that were done rather than the political upheaval and utter fiasco behind that during COVID 19's reign of terror

I gave my grandmother a look as she was drinking. She told me she heard that it’s good for her. I replied, “it’s wine and only a glass every now and then.” To which she replied, “i’m old and I’ll drink whatever I want.” She was hitting the whiskey and scotch. The woman is approaching 90 and was pregnant 13 times, I’m not going to argue with her. Drink away.
