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.

It's not just politics as usual, it's about ACTUALLY helping. These idiots are a part of the problem. They are the person telling you not to play in the road while...playing in the road. People, especially gullible people, will follow their actions not their "advice". The reason I would want them to be inflicted with an illness, that will put them out of commission, is to allow someone who actually knows what they are doing, to take over.

Isn't it now how everyone was screaming that Trump was a racist for curbing travel and raising borders in January, only to have others follow him with the same strategy later? It's almost like he had a good idea. But most Bored Panda users won't admit it.

Lets be honest. This clown said the virus was a Democrat hoax. I dont care if you vote at all, to have any leader say this shows they have some serious mental issues. Americans are generally a confused bunch. They vote in a nut, let their people die, spend more on health but dont want to aid the poor. Even if you are Republican, your savings are lower and worse than when Obama was President... Sady, America has ended its run.

High on stimulus? The package I've heard is being approved gives my family of 6 twice the amount of our rent. In other words it pays the bills for 1 month.

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.
