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!”

I have asthma and I ALWAYS wear a mask. No one wants to listen to you excuses Karen!

Carrie Laughs

I think a lot of people don't understand how asthma causes breathing problems. During an asthma attack it is harder to breathe OUT than to breathe in. Since it is so hard to breathe out air gets trapped inside the lungs – making it difficult to breathe in or out. My asthmatic friend has said to me, and this is just his opinion, that he feels it's more psychological than reality and driven by fears of not getting enough air as obviously that's very scary. As I said, that's his opinion. He hasn't been advised to not wear masks but to just 'see how he goes'.

Notice how these people say "I hAvE a MedIcAl cOnDitIon" instead of "I have asthma" because deep down they know that's not a valid excuse. Also it's so weird how all they talk about is politics and how masks are government tracking devices or whatever but once people ask them to wear one, they say because of a "medical reason" they can't, although they don't follow the actual medical reason of why you should. I may be ignorant so if there is an actual medical condition that's preventing people from wearing a mask let me know.

Just because he can doesn't automatically mean that everyone else can... we need to acknowledge that people have different needs... but people need to think harder about whether they really are going to struggle in a mask or whether that's an excuse... for most people it's an excuse!

If for some reason you can't wear a mask and you are in a hot spot you shouldn't be around other people. Get your groceries delivered, go out during less busy hours and keep your distance. If you don't want to do any of that then you are the problem.

I also wear a cloth mask when ever I go into a store, or in a place I cant stay 6 feet away from people. My 4 year old wears a mask in those places too. And 4 year old's don't really comply with that kind of thing, usually! But she understands why it is important!

Carry multiple masks. When you start having trouble breathing, caused by vapour in your breath building up in the weave of the mask, swap masks.
