In a time of trouble and anxiety, humor and laughter can go a long way to help us feel better and make the situation a little more bearable.

Yes, the coronavirus is still ravaging the world. Yes, the number of cases has surpassed 4 million globally. But some people continue to fight the pandemic with jokes and the new ones are just as good as the ones they shared at the beginning of the outbreak.

From ridiculous conspiracy theories to canceled vacations, continue scrolling to see what everyone has come up with this week, and check out our previous compilations: part 1part 2part 3part 4part 5part 6part 7part 8, and part 9.

Ferne Pearlstein, the director of The Last Laugh, a documentary about the role of humor among Jews during, and after, the Holocaust, told The New York Times that while doing research for it she and her team “found that humor was not uncommon — and was used as a coping mechanism in a situation of almost unimaginable horror, as a means of self-defense, a counterattack for people who had few, if any, other ways of fighting back, and even as just simple diversion.”

One Auschwitz survivor, Renee Firestone, said in the film that she could not help but see the bleak irony after the infamous Nazi physician Josef Mengele told her during an examination: “if you survive this war, you better have your tonsils removed.”

“The instinct to laugh shows that we were still human beings while in the camps,” Ms. Firestone explained. “This inner sense of humor is what kept me alive.”

Perfect. Summary.

And it isn't anything new. If we were to go back even further and take a look at, for example, the bubonic plague of the 14th century (also known as the Black Death), we would discover that humor was important then as well. While the disease killed large parts of the population of Europe, it also spawned the pointed satire of the Church and other authorities in “Decameron,” by Boccaccio. The classic concerns a group of young people who flee pestilence-ridden Florence for a series of villas in the countryside.

So don't worry about releasing a chuckle when scrolling through these pics. It’s natural to be amused by some of them.

If you’re in a position to, stay home and spread the word. My grandfather just came back from the hospital, everyone is rushing to his side while wearing face masks. I’ve been his caretaker and translator even as a teen, but I’m sitting this one out for myself and for him. This is literally the only time that your selflessness is be home and learning a new skill or just chilling.

Very selfish of these people. Someone actually posted on Facebook that it is her right to go back to work and get back to her life, the government has no business stopping them. As a high-risk person, I thinked her profusely for allowing me to stay home and work for the rest of my natural life. My husband nailed it this morning... no one knows how to interact with strangers. I was raised to think about how my actions affect others. A tantrum at school interrupts class and keeps the teacher from doing her job, so figure out a way to calm down. Talking during church keeps others from hearing the word. I taught my son the same thing. Hence, we believe we're doing what we SHOULD do to protect not only ourselves, but also everyone else we are around. Thanks to our current administration, specifically, people have forgotten how to cooperate and compromise with other humans. It's all attack and defer and lie. TRUTH PEOPLE!

Good riddance.. I feel that if people want to be ignorant and protest that this virus is fake and that they "want haircuts" then so be it.. get the virus, be sick/die and be gone so that the rest of us who take it seriously and take precautions can move on and start living again. A little harsh? Sure.. but I can't stand these people and it makes me laugh when they actually end up sick.

...all of these protesters should be arrested and quarantined immediately...after all, in a sense they are knowingly inciting violence. They are guilty of putting others at risk...and yet these assholes will be the first to line up when there is a vaccine available (not for a long time, but eventually) pushing others who have done all they can to be safe and respectful of others...when that time comes, all of these protesters should be identified and only be treated AFTER everyone else...Let them learn that a human life is more important than a damn haircut!

I am becoming convinced we need to have separate shopping days for masks vs no mask with thorough cleaning between. The non masks will help build herd immunity and slow down the spread while the rest of us wait for a vaccine. A mask is still not protective against stupidity.

I'd rather they just didn't let the "no-mask" fools in the store at all. There would be much less spread to normal people if they make the crazies stay home.

There were 75 new cases, but, all of them were not at the protest, it takes up to two weeks to test positive, so they had to have been exposed prior to the protest, test results sometimes take 3 to 4 weeks. Check your facts!

Dennis Meyer

Not true, check it out. 75 people did test positive but they were not all at the protest, and it takes up to two weeks after exposure to test positive, so they must have been exposed prior to the protest.
