COVID memes collected in new book, Ponta Vedra Recorder, August 27, 2020
“Laughter is the great tonic against worry, and this humor book comes to the rescue with big doses.” –Elaine Chekich
“Hysterical! This book is absolutely a laugh riot. The first time I read it, I literally laughed out loud. As I tried to read it to my husband, I found it even more hysterical and could not get through it. He had to continue reading it as I was on the floor.” –An Amazon customer
To all of the first responders and essential workers who have put their lives on the line for all of us.
The Internet has been working overtime with humorous memes, tweets, Facebook postings, Pinterest collections, you name it during the pandemic crisis that as of this writing has killed 500,000 people, including 130,000 Americans. This outpouring of gallows humor suggests that we’re coping with our profound grief and overcoming our fears, and we’re going to eventually make it out of this, with our sense of humor, and self, intact. This book collects the best of funny, non-political memes from the COVID-19 era that translate well to verbal one-, two-, or several liners; there are hundreds of other sight gag memes that we’ll save for another book. Some of the entries have been edited for language, spelling, and other typos. A big thank you goes out my favorite meme-finders, Brad Bouma, Maureen Wildey, Carol LaMothe, Rae Marzocchi and Kay Woodford; ace graphics arts designer Cynthia Kwitchoff; my wife and Blessing, Susan Schjelderup, who is getting the two of us through these trying times; and the hundreds of gifted albeit anonymous wits who wrote these memes.
Day 1 of quarantine: I’m going to take this as an opportunity to improve my health. Day Two: For personal reasons I am eating a lasagna in my shower.
Day 1 of Quarantine: Let’s bake cookies. Day 14 of Quarantine: I think I ate too many cookies. Day 28 of Quarantine: I am a cookie.
Day 2 of Quarantine: The cats are plotting to kill me.
Day 3 and I’m already tired of babysitting my mom’s grandkids.
Day 5 of social distancing: Had a conversation with a spider today. Seems nice. He’s a web designer.
Quarantine Day 6: Went to this restaurant called The Kitchen. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business. @mommajessiec
Eight days into our family lockdown and I’m starting to question whether the Donner party was even hungry.
Quarantine Day 15: I walk around like everything is fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is sliding off.
Day 17: I’ve finished Netflix.
Also Day 17: Yesterday I wore something from 5 years ago and it actually fit! So proud of myself. It was a scarf. But still… Let’s be positive here!
Day 19: I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. I’ll let you know.
Day 33: I’ve finished reading the Internet. Now what?
Day 40: Today I woke up, had a smoothie, and did an in-home workout. Translation: started drinking Margueritas at 10 a.m. and fell down the stairs.
There is a pandemic. We’re gonna be in a future history class. We’re gonna be remembered as the dumbest era of all time.
The longer this quarantine goes, the more I think Jack from The Shining actually held it together quite well.

I’m not adding this year to my age. I didn’t use it.
So far 2020 is like looking both ways before crossing the street and then getting hit by an airplane.
This is the first year I’m not going to Fiji because of Covid-19. I usually don’t go because I’m poor.
Aliens probably fly past the Earth and lock their doors.
The world is now Vegas. Everybody’s losing money, it’s acceptable to drink at all hours, and no one has any idea what day it is.
Does anybody want to have a New Year’s Eve party on June 30 and just pretend the first half was just a bad dream? I’ll make margaritas.
I will admit that I did not have “monkey gang war” on my coronavirus bingo card.
Please don’t mistake my humor about the virus as a lack of seriousness or concern. Laughing through hard times happens to be how I got through my whole life.
Apparently, referring to latex gloves as corona condoms at work is frowned upon.
Has anyone tried giving 2020 a Snickers?
Could someone enlighten me as to what the current crisis is that we are dealing with?
At this point, I wouldn’t even be surprised if the dinosaurs returned.
What if aliens visited the Earth, while we were all on lockdown, and because nobody went to greet them they just went home again?
If 2020 were a drink, it would be a colonoscopy prep.
Kenny Rogers dippin’ out in the middle of an apocalypse is the most “know when to fold ‘em” thing ever.
Can not believe Tiger King was the most normal part of 2020.

The virus must be really bad in India. I haven’t gotten a call in days about my car’s extended warranty.
After Tuesday, even the calendar goes W T F.
In 2020 we thought we’d have flying cars. But no, here we are teaching people how to wash their hands.
I think the term “shelter in place” came from up North. In the South we call it “hunker down”. Just so we’re all on the same page.
Today the devil whispered in my ear, “You’re not strong enough to withstand the storm.” And I whispered, “Six feet back, Lucifer!”
While y’all are trippin’ over the coronavirus, I’m trying to figure out what the government is trying to cover up!
I’m getting pretty jealous of those 2 astronauts getting the hell off the planet…

Mexico is now asking Trump to hurry up with the wall.
Can people stop trying to give me ideas on how to be productive during quarantine? Like I do my job and then watch Bravo for 5 hours and then go to bed like every other day. I’m not gonna organize my pantry, Brittany.
Has anyone tried unplugging 2020, waiting 10 seconds, and plugging it back in?
That “See you on Monday” turned into “See you in June” real quick.
Apparently one of the symptoms of Covid-19 is having no taste. Looking back on my exes I think I’ve been infected for years.
It’s like we all complained about what a terrible year 2019 was and 2020 is like, ‘here, hold my Corona.”
To my parents who said staying home and playing video games would never prepare you for the real world: Checkmate.
