It’s been seven years—sorry, seven months—since we compiled Bored Panda’s very first list of coronavirus jokes. At that time, it all seemed slightly surreal. The first COVID jokes and puns reflected reality and aimed at educating people. Soon, though, with the viral threat snowballing into one of the greatest public disasters of modern history, the absurdity level skyrocketed.

A new kind of comedy was born. COVID humor turned out to be as savage as the virus itself, and no meme, pun, or one-liner was out of the question. Throwing COVID jokes around became a new kind of weapon against the collective trauma and misery we live in.

And since we’ve rolled into the second wave of this viral turmoil and everyone is getting a little philosophical and sentimental, the COVID jokes are on fire just like they were the first day. Just better. They matured like a collectible wine, which will get us all the way through 2020. So, roll up your sleeves for this very gourmet compilation of the freshest COVID-19 humor. For dessert, check out more corona jokes here, here, here, and here.

It’s not only you who noticed that corona jokes have become darker than they used to be at the start of the year. The fact that the pandemic has gotten way worse and it’s nowhere near the end has surely escalated the darker sense of humor.

In a recent interview with comedy writer Ariane Sherine, we talked about the effect the pandemic has had on our lives. The woman from London, United Kingdom told us that she, like many others, tries to limit the flow of corona-related news daily to limit the psychological pressure.

“I get my news in bite-sized chunks from Twitter. I read the news articles they recommend, but I never watch the television news as I find that a lot more emotive and distressing than written news,” she said.

On the other hand, the sense of community we all share these days is stronger than ever before. “On the upside, there’s also a shared sense of camaraderie and getting through tough times together,” Ariane commented.

This sense of community is also key to corona humor, which has become a universal subgenre transgressing all social media platforms, cultures, and backgrounds. Memes, puns, and one-liners hit us hard in a similar way that the virus does. It’s not selective and speaks to everyone.

In every absurd corona joke, there’s a sense of empathy in the things we are all going through. And since the grounds of optimism seem to be depleting daily, there’s only one thing we can do. Sit back, relax, and poke fun at the world which hasn’t been so nice to us lately.
