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.

I'm not anti-social, I just understand how to entertain my own brain and don't rely on others to provide for mental stimulation. I also trust my fellow humans enough to care for each other without constant reassurance in the form of other wise unnecessary social niceties. While also truly enjoying the company and input of a small group of friends. It gives me space to focus on what actually matters to me as a person without jumping through all kinds of hoops in the hopes of not losing my position in society. :D

I guess this person can work from home? There are plenty of people suffering, and it has nothing to do with being introvert/extrovert. Separated from loved ones, unable to work, can't go to store without fear, no pay check, homeschooling, govt assistance still hasn't arrived, overdue bills......it isn't staying home that is hard. It is staying home and not knowing how long you can put food on the table. And though evictions are suspended, ALL that rent will come due. That is the struggle for so many people.

Potatogamers2

Ok..no one was talking about what's being hard or who is suffering, it only says that they realise their live doesn't change that much. Like for me, nothing really changes that much.. doesn't mean I don't struggle or others don't struggle.

I'm disabled and basically housebound, plus an extreme introvert who enjoys their own company. My life actually hasn't changed a bit. My husband isn't the indoor cat that I am though and is going a bit nuts. I did get him to clean the outside of the second story windows when I saw he was bored, so that's a win.

Lorena, I'm sorry that you don't have any friends, but I'm glad that you have a community of family and other people in your life. Are you able to catch up with them on Zoom/Skype/Facetime, during this lockdown? It's not quite the same, but at least it's better than being totally alone.

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.
