“More Funny Covid Memes”, Compiled by Ed Mickolus, Wandering Woods Publishers, 98 pages, $5.50

Get ready for a bunch more laughs. Nocatee author Ed Mickolus, with the help of a group of his friends, has compiled “More Funny Covid Memes” from the current period of isolation brought on by the COVID virus.

If you read his first collection, “America’s Funniest Memes: Coronavirus Edition,” you will gobble this slight volume up. (For those who haven’t, go get it. You will not be sorry.) A meme is defined as a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by internet users.

“I can’t believe it’s almost September. Literally feels like it was March just 16 years ago.”

“Sometimes I wonder if all of this is happening because I didn’t forward that message to 10 other people.”

“News flash! Sticking your tongue on an outdoor bug zapper lamp will cure the virus. Yep, I read it on the internet.”

“Apparently walking around Walmart with an Alka-Seltzer in my mouth yelling ‘the vaccine isn’t working’ isn’t funny …”

“Not to alarm anyone … but Mad Max took place in 2021.”

Keep some tissues handy. My laughter brought on tears.
