From GTA to Hitler, And Even Football: The Funny Side Of Coronavirus

Coronavirus has pretty much forced everyone out of their normal lifestyles and has created an air of uneasiness and gloominess across the world. As this duration of this pandemic increases, this tends to create mental health issues for many, which is just going to add on to an already bad situation. Plus, the internet is constantly flowing with bad news. 

It is absolutely essential to stay positive during these tough times. As an old, wise headmaster once said, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light” (who said Dumbledore isn’t quotable?)

While we love to help people in financial straits, and spread positivity through general mental peace tips, like the importance of Yoga, this time, we decided to spread some laughter and humor. Laughter, after all, is a very important weapon in our arsenal to help remain positive throughout even the worst of the times. 

In fact, the good folks at VeryWellMind have written a great piece on how humor can help relieve the stress caused by Coronavirus. They’ve explained how cortisol secreted when we laugh is a great stress buster, and how it can help improve our overall mental health.

With this in mind, we, at EarlySalary, decided to take a look at some of the funniest memes, jokes and trends shared across various platforms with the sole intention to spread some laughter and positivity.

Brace yourselves, the memes are coming

#1 Birthday meme, by u/omega4life in r/memes.

r/memes is one of our favorite destinations for our daily humor fix. This subreddit has some of the best and original memes to be shared across the internet. The community has plenty of great memes, but this particular meme, titled Maybe a corona meme, by u/omega4life is extremely funny. Take a look!

P.S. The best of Reddit is mostly in the comments section, so go check the meme out on Reddit!

#2 Mask meme, by Lumpysauce in Instagram

There have been a lot of people against wearing masks, claiming that it’s an infringement on their freedom and/or causing mild respiratory distress, with some claims even stating that masks are “killing us”. This is not a political forum though, but we’d kindly ask you that you wear your mask to help get over this pandemic as soon as possible. However, a wide majority of people are angry at people refusing to wear masks, leading to hilarious memes, such as the mask meme by @lumpysauce on Instagram.

#3 Wembley Meme, by Wembley Stadium’s twitter account

Plenty of us had great plans for the year 2020. 2020 had other ideas. This emotion was best expressed by Wembley Stadium’s official twitter account through this meme

Plenty of football fans were surely expecting to see a packed Wembley, but hey, maybe next year.

#4 Hitler has Coronavirus, and He’s Not Happy by YouTuber Puzzling games

If any of you folks have ever watched a movie called downfall, you know exactly what to expect from this meme. If you don’t, imagine an angry Hitler being ranting at the present scenario. It’s 4 minutes of complete frustration, which is subtitled beautifully to capture the emotions of the present scenario, go have a look!

#5 A dead meme returns by ultimate_uwu-master in memedroid

A lot of us know of the classic game by Rockstar Studios, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, which sees the protagonist, Carl “CJ” Johnson thrown into the streets of his rival gangs with little cash when he utters a line which has become meme-worthy for years to come. This meme by ultimate_uwu-master brings attention to the fact that there has been some pandemic or the other in the 20th year of the last three centuries, go take a look!
