The very premise of this article might sound ridiculous. After all, what could possibly be funny about a global pandemic that has altered our everyday lives, shutting down entire countries, and redefining the very notion of human interaction? In times of crisis, however, when we're scared, don’t know what the hell is going on or when will it all end, comedy seems to be one of the best coping mechanisms and laughter is the best medicine.

So, as the coronavirus continues to spread across the world, let's try and find a sense of reprieve in these dire circumstances, shall we? Bored Panda has collected another series of viral memes, best jokes, and just about everything else that pokes fun at the difficult situation we're currently in.

To check out more funny jokes about coronavirus, fire up our previous posts: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4.

Peter McGraw, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and director of the Humor Research Lab, said he and colleagues have established is that humor can emerge from benign moral violations. These are threats to worldviews that still manage to come off as harmless.

“The things that are bad in our life can also be good fodder for comedy,” McGraw told Inverse. “The act of making cool jokes is about transforming these violations and transforming them into something that is laugh-worthy. It allows us the opportunity to see situations differently.”

The second benefit, according to the expert, is that it's easier being positive when laughing at a good joke. Studies show that when we hear a joke that resonates with our sense of humor, our brain likes it. As soon as the punch line hits, our brain’s reward system lights up and releases “feel good” neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins.

What allows us to find certain serious topics funny is psychological distance, and this is mediated by four dimensions: spatial, temporal, social, and mental. McGraw said that psychological distance is what psychologists call a moderator — it can either turn up or turn down an effect.

“Things that seem absurd are immediately encoded as unreal — even if it’s actually something that is real,” McGraw explained. “That can help enhance the likelihood that it’s seen as amusing.”

A group of researchers also demonstrated that humor can both prevent negative emotions and cure them. In their experiment, participants watched a video of a stand-up routine and a compilation of graphic fatality scenes. When people watched the stand-up before the scary video, it made the fatalities feel less stressful. Meanwhile, when they watched the stand-up afterward, the clip reduced some of the anxiety caused by the first video.

Because we're taught if a company files bankruptcy it's ok so they can cancel/restructure debts. But if a person dies it, for some reason it's the end of the world and they are shunned from society. F that.

I sincerely doubt these large corporations are already in danger of collapsing. They're just trying to take advantage of the situation and get a free hand out from the government. Remember Big Business = massive political contributions = Bailout = Thanks! Fellow country club members.

I've always thought similar. How can we who can barely buy what we need and strategize what we can afford for that month. Then buy more to store for emergencies? When we can't even buy everything we need on one month's income?

Remember the bank bailouts where some managers gave themselves bonuses. Mortgages were bundled and sold as 'Default Swaps' all over the world, betting on foreclosures. Minuchin was known as the Foreclosure King in L.A. The banks are now stuck with rotting yards and falling apart cheap houses in East L.A. People were given no grace periods; they were living in their cars. Larry Kudlow was giving out ignorant and wrong financial advice. Don't expect much help from Trump who bought up cheap real estate and evicted poor tenants. Jared has done the same in the NJ slum real estate he owns. The Trumps are a grifter family on steroids.

No one said anything of the sort. Ordinary people are expected to have savings in case of emergency but these multi billion dollar corporations (that already pay as little tax as possible) stick out their hands for a govt handout immediately there's a downturn. People also have running costs but are shamed when they dare to ask for govt help.

Seriously, people I've never seen outside in three 9 years we've lived in this house. Suddenly they're all outside. With dogs not on leashes, and if they ARE on a leash it's because they're huge, but they've never walked them before so they can't control them anyway... that might just be a "my neighborhood" problem though.
