30 Memes That Summarize 2020 So Far

2020 is still far from over but a lot of people think that it’s one of the worst years in recent modern history. So much so that they’re using humor to cope with just how bad things got. People are posting hilarious jokes about 2020 that a lot of us can relate to, and here we have  this collection of some of the best ones.

Scroll down and see the different memes collected. This year has been a huge challenge so far: Brexit shenanigans ensued, we nearly had WW3, Australia was on fire, the coronavirus pandemic shut down the world, and racial tensions over police brutality in the US reached a breaking point. It’s been rough. But people find that a bit of humor helps keep their spirits up in difficult times. 




A comedy writer whose name is Ariane said that her favourite jokes this year are “definitely” and “my plans vs. 2020”. She said that the craziness of this year is summed up so perfectly in this meme.  

She said that 2020 will still be mentioned occasionally in the future. Ariane also thinks that the bad news will continue in 2020. She expects that we will see second waves of coronavirus deaths. She said that she would love to see a vaccine very soon.




Some of the 2020 jokes are related to us thinking about how we and future generations will look back at this year. While other social media users are joking about how we’re still not even halfway through the year and there are probably lots of messed up things waiting for us in the near future. Like alien invasions and zombie plagues. Or something more serious but just as scary.

Staying positive in 2020 when negative things keep hitting us over and over (and over…) again is easier said than done. However, small changes that you make to your lifestyle can have huge effects.



“One positive thing (but sadly after seeing atrocious acts of injustice towards innocent people) I learned is that we have a voice and that we can do something about the racism and injustice by supporting each other, even with adversaries like Trump and his racist gang, we can make a change by holding on. Secondly, even with social distancing, you can become closer as a community. A third positive note is that hundreds of millions of people have been saved due to lockdown measures. I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re safe!”
