12 Dark Coronavirus Jokes From Twitter That'll Make You Chuckle
Dark humor is a fun and often necessary way to get through hard times—yes, even the coronavirus pandemic.
There's an old adage that whenever a comedian tells a joke about a hot-button topic and it doesn't go over well, the crowd squirms in their chairs and yells, "Too soon!" But often what the crowd is really saying is, "Not funny enough!" Master comedians have shown that it's possible to joke about any topic if done correctly and tastefully, and without taking a swing at the victims of the atrocity.
The coronavirus is obviously a huge threat to our society and has upended life as we know it, but it's also been fertile ground for some hilarious observations and self-deprecating quips. Here's a look at some of the best jokes about dealing with coronavirus from Twitter.
