Well, the coronavirus pandemic is still with us. COVID-19 cases have exploded and while many of us do responsible things like staying at home, wearing a mask when in public, and obsessively washing our hands, some have politicized the science and disregarded warnings from public health and safety professionals. There’s no one coming to save us and very little good news on the horizon. What are we to do? It turns out, a great way to pass the time is to enjoy and create coronavirus memes.
Because the internet is equal parts awful and wonderful, you’ll find all sorts of memes about the current moment we find ourselves in ranging from offensive to stupid. We decided to take another deep dive into pandemic memes to find some of the funniest jokes online. Here are 25 hilarious coronavirus memes that will allow you to laugh in the face of disaster.
They’re Out to Get Us
The cat conspiracy we all know is actually real! Why don’t they love us the way we love them?
The idea of electing to fly right now seems pretty insane to us. We were glad to find this meme and know that we’re not the only ones.
Back to School 2020
The conversation around schools holding in-class lessons often ignores the adults who have to deal with the kids. What does teaching in 2020 look like? This. This right here.
He is Legend
While staying at home is a rather boring thing to do, it does help and is the best way to slow the spread of the virus and remain healthy yourself. We’re not facing mutant, plague victims like Will Smith‘s character in I Am Legend, but we can still play our part.
Adjusting to life in a plague is challenging for a number of reasons. While many of us have the luxury of working from home, plenty must brave this moment in public every single day. Think about the first responders, nurses, doctors, grocery clerks, and other essential workers if you’re feeling down.
RSVP to the Afterlife
Large gatherings in most places are banned for good reason. People throwing parties and gathering with others are being the most irresponsible. If you get an invite to a party, that’s your sign that the person who invited you doesn’t actually care about you.
Well, the coronavirus pandemic is particularly hard for singles who are more than ready to mingle. This text exchange perfectly captures dating culture in this moment.
Wear a Mask
Wearing a mask is one of the very best things we can do to help slow the spread of COVID-19. While some people object, others are doing the responsible thing to keep others safe and are sporting masks whenever they’re out of the house.
Wear a Mask, at All Costs
No, the iPhone hasn’t kept up with the mask-wearing. But, don’t let your phone distract you (more than it already does). Keep that face mask snugly over your mouth and nose.
Isolation is causing many of us to revaluate what’s important. Now, when you see someone not wearing a mask in public it’s a dealbreaker. Masks are hot!
2020 For Sale
This meme was shared by an actual realtor with a great sense of humor. With all the uncertainty in the world, it’s hard to believe that anyone would be making big life changes, but the world still turns.
Somebody Stop Me!
If you haven’t seen The Mask in several years, don’t. It’s worse than you remember it. Hopefully, this meme encourages folks to remember their masks.
The Times They Are a-Changin’
Knowing what we now know, it’s insane that we blow out candles on a cake. That’s a super spreader event waiting to happen.
Some things never change. We hope Mike enjoys that day off.

“It’s Been 84 Years”
We’re all more than ready for things to get back to normal. Schools reopening would be one hell of a start. This very funny meme captures the eternity it feels like since schools closed.
Really, The Kids Are Running With It
Again, we find another meme about the length of time schools have been closed for. Hang in there, we’ll get through this!
It’s All We Have Left
The person who posted this meme is a huge fan of comic conventions and they’re missing the thrill of the cosplay. You can wear just about whatever you want to the grocery store now. The best part is, you can hide your face behind that mask.
Not at the Front of That Line
Disney World recently reopened amidst the backdrop of those record-breaking case numbers in Florida we told you about. This funny tweet about how misguided it seems is spot-on.
“Gather ’round, when I was your age people didn’t fear for their lives because there was competent national leadership. People looked to science and reason instead of the stock market to dictate policy. It was one boring time to be alive and I miss it.”
Meet Mr. Sidechair
Social distancing means getting very well-acquainted with every object in your home. But, don’t get too friendly with your furniture or you could end up like this.
Not even going to touch this masterpiece of a meme.
Oh, Baby, Baby
Saving lives is sexy! Eat your heart out Britney Spears fans!
The American Way
Most countries have flattened the curve on a horizontal, but not the USA. No, we’ve managed to do it on the vertical because the only way is up here.
A Whole New World
Hand sanitizer is the hot new scent of the season. Don’t leave home without it.
There you go! 25 memes about the coronavirus that we hope made you feel a bit better about the sh*tshow we’re all living through.
