It’s not like the coronavirus is funny, but sometimes you can get useful information and a laugh at the same time. Or at least a half-laugh and a groan. Whatever works. This page is not meant to be overly useful, but hopefully it can distract you a bit from the madness for a few minutes.

You know, because social distancing. While hiking. So they don’t shut down all the parks and declare martial law.

Sing it, Randy!
Mar 22 / Poor Jennifer (Removed)
Because we’ve all made mistakes with videoconferencing technology. Make sure you’re videoconferencing system is not working in the bathroom. This will inevitably be taken down. In fact, I’m taking it down. I don’t know what douchebag colleague of Jennifer posted this, but she’s a jerk.

No explanation needed. Thanks to D. Cantu on Facebook. Not sure of origin.
Mar 13 / Trump Invents a Google Website
According to Wired, “Google’s not making a nationwide coronavirus testing website. And the company had no idea the president would say it was.” I don’t know if this is funny or tragic. How could he possibly think Google wouldn’t notice…or respond?
Mar 12 / Costco Toilet Paper Rush & Recall Myth
I feel like this is the video that perfectly depicts how far we’ve come as civilized species. I present to you the Toilet Paper Rush of 2020, in #Costco stores. #Covid_19 #CoronaOutbreak pic.twitter.com/hKzjqgwk6p

Feb 6 / JP on Coronavirus Panic
A little cringe worthy at times, but still funny and on point. It’s funny how this video might be different if made a month later…
If you happen to find other nominally humorous but also informative things out there, let me know. I could use the laugh.
