A little Holiday Cheer with the “punny side” of 2020

As this never-to-be-forgotten year draws to a close, with 51 of California’s 58 counties in the Purple Tier, most of us could use a little Holiday cheer. Besides, “recent studies have found that a good laugh can boost our dopamine levels and even shore up our immune systems,” as Emily Kelleher writes on, where she included several of the jokes below.

Fortunately, in addition to Emily’s, the internet is full of humor, so below are some we hope will put a smile on your face, and some joy in your heart.

And, please send us one or two of your favorites from the “pundemic” that we can share at next week’s Innovations in Healthcare Awards Event! Click here to leave your comments and “funnies” on Mimi’s LinkedIn.

  • I never thought the comment “I wouldn’t touch them with a six-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!


  • My husband purchased a world map and then gave me a dart and said, “Throw this and wherever it lands – that’s where I’m taking you when this pandemic ends.”  Turns out, we’re spending two weeks behind the fridge.


  • You know what they’re saying about 2020?  It went viral faster than anyone thought it would.


  • If I keep stress-eating at this level, the buttons on my shirt will start socially distancing from each other.


  • Why don’t chefs find coronavirus jokes funny?  They’re in bad taste.


  • Finland just closed its borders.  You know what that means.  No one will be crossing the finish line.


  • What do you call panic-buying of sausage and cheese in Germany?  The wurst-kase scenario.


  • Nail salons, hair salons, waxing centers and tanning places are closed.  It’s about to get ugly out there.


  • I’ll tell you a coronavirus joke now, but you’ll have to wait a week to see if you got it.


  • 30 days hath September, April, June, and November, all the rest have 31, except for March which was infinite.


And for our dog lovers…


  • Day 121 at home and the dog is looking at me like, “See?  This is why I chew the furniture!”


  • This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat.  It was obvious she thought her cat understood her.  I came into my  house, told my dog – and we laughed a lot.


And my two personal favorites:


  • I finished Netflix today.


  • And from the University of Saskatchewan:
