People Are Already Getting Disappointed In The Year 2021, And Here’s 50 Of The Funniest Jokes They Made
Just because we get a new calendar and the date changes on our phones, it doesn’t magically give us a pine-fresh brand new start and solve all of society’s problems. However, even knowing this and after the humbling year that was 2020, some people had hoped that 2021 would be better. While the year isn’t necessarily doomed yet, some already feel that it is because the first week of the new year has been terrifying, surreal, and exhausting.
The entire world was glued to their screens watching the events happening in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, January 6. Riled up by President Donald Trump’s unfounded claims that the election had been ‘unfair’ and ‘stolen,’ his supporters, who had been protesting nearby, violently stormed the US Capitol building. A lot of these rioters, whom some are calling ‘domestic terrorists’ and ‘traitors,’ firmly believe in the QAnon and voter fraud conspiracy theories.
Like after other scary and difficult moments, many people reacted to the situation the only way they knew how—with dark humor and memes. Many of them focused on how 2021 is just a continuation of the previous year. Bored Panda has collected some of the most popular comedic responses to the year so far, so have a look at the internet’s reaction below and let us know what you think of the events in the US, dear Readers.
