2020 is still far from over but a lot of people think that it’s one of the worst years in recent modern history. So much so that they’re using humor to cope with just how bad things got. People are posting hilarious jokes about 2020 that a lot of us can relate to, and Bored Panda has collected some of the best ones.

Scroll down, upvote your fave 2020 jokes, and share how you’re dealing with all the stress this year, dear Pandas. When you’re done enjoying this list, have a look through our earlier post about people making “my plans vs. 2020” memes.

This year has been a huge challenge so far: Brexit shenanigans ensued, we nearly had WW3, Australia was on fire, the coronavirus pandemic shut down the world, and racial tensions over police brutality in the US reached a breaking point. It’s been rough. But people find that a bit of humor helps keep their spirits up in difficult times. Bored Panda reached out to speak about 2020 memes with comedy writer and comedian Ariane Sherine. Scroll down for our interview with her.

Comedy writer Ariane told us that her fave jokes this year are "definitely" the "my plans vs. 2020" meme. "It just sums up the craziness of this year so perfectly."

She believes that people will still mention 2020 occasionally in the future. "2016 was also a bad year and people still talk about it. But it [2020] will ll slowly fade from memory and be mentioned less and less."

Ariane thinks that the bad news will continue in 2020. "Sadly, I expect we’ll see second waves of coronavirus deaths. I’d love to see a vaccine but I’m not sure that’s going to happen this year."

Some of the 2020 jokes are related to us thinking about how we and future generations will look back at this year. While other social media users are joking about how we’re still not even halfway through the year and there are probably lots of messed up things waiting for us in the near future. Like alien invasions and zombie plagues. Or something more serious but just as scary.

Staying positive in 2020 when negative things keep hitting us over and over (and over…) again is easier said than done. However, small changes that you make to your lifestyle can have huge effects.

Childish Gambino goes hard. His stand up is funny too. He was almost black Spider-Man, almost.

How about we name 2020 “the year that must not be named”. Once it is over we never speak of it again.

Like taking some time off from social media and the news, brewing yourself a steaming mug of tea, and sitting down with a good book. We all need to recharge; following the news is important but doing it nonstop will lead to burnout and, eventually, apathy.

Getting plenty of movement, some sunshine, lots of rest, and having a good diet are also very important. The world’s always much grimmer when we’re exhausted.

On the other hand, when we’re full of energy, we have all the tools that we need to change the world into a better place. 2020 is far from over but is it going to be like the first half of the year or can we turn this year around? That’s for each and every one of us Pandas to decide.

2020 history is going to read like a kindergartner’s attempt at fiction. “Um, so first an entire continent was on fire. But then there was this disease, and everyone forgot about that. So then the whole world had to stay home. And school was cancelled for the year. And a bunch of people got real mad about stuff. And, um....um...BAM! Murder hornets!”
