In these unprecedented times, talking about how unprecedented things are is so thoroughly precedented now that it almost feels like we can’t say that anymore. How long does an unprecedented thing go on before you say “ok, now it’s just normal.”

That’s a question for philosophers and poets and other people who have books in their house. Not for me. Mine is not to parse out truth. Mine is to scroll through Twitter laughing at our collective existential despair at 2020.

Here are ten such tidbits that will tickle your sad funny bone.

10. The root of the problem

Let’s track him down and ask him a few questions.


9. Gettin’ wasted

I demand a do-over this instant.


8. Formidable foreshadowing

Cough once for yes, twice for dead.

7. Hour by hour

Let’s just be done with that nonsense already.


6. Special times

And there’s a kid and a toy involved in there somewhere.

5. Couch surfing

Dream a little smaller, friend, we’re not there yet.

4. Collective trauma

Nobody’s coming out of this the same.

3. The circle of life

We are kind of in a holding pattern right now.


2. Seems about right

I would also not have been surprised.

1. True colors

Psh. As if there’s gonna be a 2040.

What does the future hold for us? I have no idea. But I do know this: after 2020, we’re prepared for pretty much anything. Unless it involves baking bread. Turns out we’re all very bad at that.

What’s the weirdest thing about 2020 in your opinion?

Tell us all about it in the comments.

Thanks fam!
