There are now over 13.1 million confirmed cases of people infected with the coronavirus worldwide and the situation looks dire. However, people haven’t given up yet and are doing what humans do in hard times: they poke fun at the crisis to laugh and boost their spirits.

I cannot understand why so many people in the world listen more to a populist politician on health issues than to researchers? I go to the doctor with my complaints and not to the mayor.

The first thing that we wanted to know was which meme about 2020 stood out for Know Your Meme’s Senior Editor Matt personally as the most accurate and funniest so far. 

“This is a tough question. The first one to come to mind is ‘Tested Positive for Missing the Homies,’ which is something that I think had very wide appeal during the coronavirus quarantine. I have to admit, I am also suffering from this affliction. What can I say? I miss my homies. I think about that meme a lot,” Matt told Bored Panda.

However, the topic of humor during a deadly pandemic can be touchy. On the one hand, humor and laughter always go hand in hand and help people keep their hope burning strong during times of crisis. On the other hand, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected a lot of people who might not think that the coronavirus is something to take lightly.

“I think I need to take this on a case-by-case basis,” Matt explained. “There are plenty of great coronavirus memes and plenty of bad ones. I think when it comes to a situation like that, one that affects everyone on a global scale, it's kind of fair game. Of course, there's a line, I think, when you start mocking other people's experiences with the virus.”

He added that nearly anything can be funny but the context surrounding a joke makes all the difference. We were also interested to know if Matt thought there was any way that the different sides of the aisle could find common ground.

“There's not any reconciling this point. People will always offend and others will always be offended. I think that most people should just be conscious about what they're meme-ing and what the subtext of the meme is. If people do take offense, try and understand why. It's possible to make jokes about sensitive topics, but you have to listen to your audience in order to get there.”

Finally, we wanted to get Matt’s take about the second half of 2020 and whether he thought the global situation would improve. Unfortunately, he wasn’t too optimistic. “Sorry to say, it's not looking good. We're currently in the middle of a global pandemic that's killed more than 400,000 people, so I think for many people it's probably going to continue being pretty painful.”

He added: “Oh, and there's a US election coming up, which are usually calm, orderly events with no problems, partisanship, or societal ruptures. Sorry to be a bummer!”

Isn't it a bit racist, though? Stupidity is colour blind. I recall months ago reading comments on other sites from black Americans saying stuff like "God, save my people from themselves", stating how they'd refuse to wear masks although dying massively. Also, there are *shock* some Asians showing in an old series of anti-lockdown protest photos in the USA. Go ahead and downvote, but I hate being put within the same basket as the stupid ones just because of my skin colour. And no, I couldn't care less about one's skin tone, so don't go feeding me the "now you know how it feels" poop. You know nothing about me and how, and where I live, or how and were I grew up.
