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.
