2020 memes: The embodiment of this dumpster fire of a year
2020 has, without a doubt, been a dumpster fire of a year. Nobody has been unaffected, and nobody is having much fun. It feels bleak. Some days it even feels scary dystopian novel bleak.
With a number of heartbreaking celebrity deaths, the pandemic, highly fraught politics, national & international protests, and more, the world is in a period of chaos that the history textbooks will look back on in awe.
So, what does the internet do? Well, it makes memes to cope of course. Laughter and making jokes is a coping mechanism for fear, grief, and discomfort so the internet has a slew of relatable memes which serve not only to make us feel less alone (since we’re all dealing with the crazy of 2020 in some form or another), and also bring a little laughter into our day.
Here are some of our favorite 2020 memes.
