He definitely made his point in style.

It’s difficult to count the ways that the pandemic has uprooted our lives. Many of us are jobless. People have lost loved ones. We’re all getting cabin fever from being cooped up in our homes. But kids have got it pretty weird. And so do parents. As their studies move to the internet, children are being forced to endure “Zoom classes.” And while that seems pretty surreal and scary for many of us, kids happen to be super adaptable. And that adaptability can often translate to humor. These tweets, which come from parents eavesdropping on their children’s virtual lessons, are some seriously wholesome proof of that.
The people disobeying lockdown orders right now are like the kids in your fourth grade class who wouldn’t follow the rules so the teacher kept punishing the entire class. So just remember, the more y’all keep breaking the rules the longer we all have to be in lockdown!
Now scroll down if you want to see some incredibly cringe-inducing posts, but honestly, we would understand if you don’t.
Hands down, 2020 has been one of the worst years in any currently living person’s life. But who knows, maybe God will throw something worse at us in the future so let’s not tempt him further. If you’d like a roundup of memes from a simpler time before this sh*tstorm began, click here.
A friend of mine, Bob, recently went on his longest trip since the pandemic began.

A friend of mine, Bob, recently went on his longest trip since the pandemic began. His mother lives over the border in Pennsylvania, about 90 miles from here, and he needed to take her some supplies that weren’t available in the small town where she resides. But once Bob crossed the state line he was stopped because of his Ohio plates by a State Trooper warning him that if he planned on staying in Pennsylvania he would need to self-quarantine for 14 days. He also admitted that police were looking for contraband booze that some Ohioans have apparently been bootlegging in since Pennsylvania’s governor ordered liquor stores to shut down. Then Bob’s mother refused to open the door for him, afraid he might kill her (accidentally, of course.) She told him to leave the box of supplies on the porch and go straight home. “And don’t talk to strangers!” Not quite the fun trip he had imagined.
Summer vacation is going to have to be a little different this year. No stays at beach resorts, no week at Disney World, and even your mother doesn’t really want to see you. So where can you go? Here are a few ideas:
Around the Corner
Yes, there is a world beyond your refrigerator, beyond your daily Zoom conference with co-workers who all want to know if you can recommend a good series on Netflix, even beyond the far reaches of your driveway. If you stand on the sidewalk in front of your house you can see all the way to the corner of your block. You’ve seen many of your neighbors walking their dogs there and then disappearing. Often their disappearances are followed by wild barking. What’s really going on? Be adventurous and find out for yourself. Strap on your mask and gloves and explore the far reaches of your street, go around the corner, maybe all the way around the block. If you’re lucky you may even get to see some dogs sniff each other (from at least six feet apart.)
Camping Out (in your backyard)
You love the great outdoors and there’s nothing like sleeping out under the stars to work up a great appetite. Unfortunately with travel bans and campsites closed in most states, here is a better option: Set up camp in your backyard. Remember how much fun this was when you were a kid and your mom and dad wanted to have a night in the house alone and not have you or your brother barging in in the middle of — “Oh my god, what is Dad doing to Mom!” Recreate that special feeling by sleeping out next to the bird feeder. Enjoy the freedom of peeing behind the garage. Cook up one of those freeze dried dinners that you’ve been stockpiling over an open fire, or use the conveniently provided campsite Weber grill, crack open a cold one, and enjoy the quiet and seclusion of another night in quiet seclusion.
The Gas Station
It’s been quite a while since you’ve been to the gas station. Lately, even if you don’t have a plug-in hybrid, you’ve still been getting about 30 days to a gallon of gas. Because there’s almost nowhere to go. But what would a vacation be without a pit stop at your local GasTown? Even if you don’t need any gas you can still check your tire pressure, your oil, clean your windows, and maybe even run inside for a candy bar and a bag of fried pork rinds. But who are all these other people pumping gas and where are they all going? Do they know something you don’t? Maybe you should follow one of them and they’ll take you to a secret place where people are frolicking, and laughing, sunbathing, and splashing in the water. Or else they’ll get creeped out that you keep following them and call the cops to come and get you. Either way you’ll get to go someplace that you never expected to be.
Deep Dive in the Elevator
For many of you who live in apartment buildings the elevator has been number one on your places to avoid list. The chance of running into other building residents and having to be in a confined space with them for even two or three floors (holding your breath) or worse 10 or more floors is an unimaginable horror. And god knows who has touched those buttons and whether or not they were wearing protection. But summer is time for a change of pace and with proper preparation you can enjoy this trip, and stay safe. Instead of having to climb up and down nine flights of stairs every time you need to walk the dog imagine the convenience and simplicity of rocketing up and down in forbidden fashion? Simply don your full wet suit, scuba mask, and oxygen tank and take the plunge. Added benefit, once out on the street you can walk anywhere you want without fearing contact with strangers as they will likely give you a wide berth, often even crossing to the other side of the street. After your trip simply go to your shower for a thorough cleansing before removing your suit and you’ll be ready for your next exotic trip. Maybe the Laundromat?

Kobe Bryant’s death, wildfires, World War III, Chernobyl 2.0, plague, murder hornets, and probably some other things we’re forgetting. If you went back in time by six months to warn yourself about how horrible 2020 was going to be, would you believe any of it? Probably not. And now that we’re months into quarantine, it feels like we’ll all be stuck in our homes forever.
Whatever, who cares, have some memes.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock during lockdown, you’ve probably become familiar with the Dancing Pallbearers videos the blew up back in March. Dancing pallbearers is a bit of a culturual phenomenon in Ghana, and the memes inspired by the group have become a cultural phenomenon for the rest of the world. And with the rest of the world suffering and struggling with Covid-19, the pallbearers decided to film a message for medical workers around the globe. The dapper gents are clad in white and wearing face masks – and implore everyone to stay at home unless they want a morbid dance party of their own. It’s a sweet gesture, and while we appreciate the jovial touch they put on pallbearing – pretty sure we all want to see a few less coffins being carried through the streets.
From NANA OTAFRIJA to all the doctors in the world 🌍

With much of the world feeling alienated right now, it’s nice to read happy and wholesome stories of how people are managing to connect with one another despite the isolating effects of the pandemic. Twitter user Hugh Weber took to the site with a heartwarming tale about his eleven year old daughter, Emerson. The girl has a love for writing beautiful letters, and after thanking her local mailman for his duties with a decorated message, she attracted the attention of his supervisor, Sara. The supervisor shared Emerson’s story with USPS workers all over the country, and now Emerson has a few hundred pen pals. The story is a an inspiring reminder of how important it is to maintain connections with our fellow humans – now, more than ever. It’s also a reminder that analog methods of communication can mean a hell of a lot more than a text, if you’re able to write out a real letter.
It really does seem like we keep having to check things off on a master list of hypothetical apocalyptic scenarios. First we had the Australian wildfires, then we almost got ourselves into a third world war, then a pandemic, then Chernobyl caught on fire, and the list goes on. This meme, from the movie The Emperor’s New Groove, highlights all of those horrible things while simultaneously giving us a little chuckle. After all, at this point what can we really do beside make some humor out of it?
As the days blend into one another and we continue this thankless, penniless existence, there seems to be very little that makes us smile or laugh. Even binge-watching has started to lose its escapist benefits. One exception to this absolute dreary drainage of entertainment has been memes. Through thick and thin, these funny posts and tweets give us some seriously needed instant gratification. We hope they do the same for you.
We won’t make any further mention of that horrible thing going on in the world right now, but we do want to once again thank our heroic healthcare workers!
It may cost a horrifying amount of money to visit the doctor here in America, but lucky for you browsing through these memes is completely free!
As if Grimes and Elon Musk’s kid wasn’t going to turn out weird enough already, they’ve reportedly named her “Influenza.” Pop culture news outlet Pop Base tweeted about it earlier today and Twitter has since been handing out fire reactions left and right. Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, but we wouldn’t be all that surprised if this turns out to be 100% true. Luckily though, the truth will be revealed very soon as Grimes’ due date is on May 4th. All we can really say is, godspeed to that baby.
Now please enjoy these incredibly entertaining reaction tweets.
absolutely no one:

Happy Earth Day! People may be dying everywhere from a plague right now, but at least the earth seems to be thriving? Sometimes you just have to look on the bright side and that’s all you can do. Scroll down for some (mostly cynical) memes about our beloved home planet, and let’s try to do a better job of taking care of it, starting by saying a big “f*ck you” to Nestle.
