Much Needed Humour

These are not the best of times. The raging of the Coronavirus, caused half the world to be on lockdown, so far. The virus has claimed many deaths, and the numbers are still adding up. There is an atmosphere of fear. The world now is messy, disruptive, depressing…

However, such is life. We have to take the good with the bad. When times are bad, we just need to hunker down, and wait for it to pass. For pass, it surely will. Later on, when we look back, we will all get a good laugh out of it.

Meanwhile, a change of lifestyle and some inconveniences is inevitable. We have to play our part if we want to stay healthy, and not help spreading the virus. Some simple common sense and vigilance are called for. For example, make it a habit to wash your hands as often as possible, and keep them away from your face. Don’t go too close to people, and keep away from crowds. If you are not feeling well, wear a mask, go see a doctor and stay at home. You might want to practise social distancing. Stay at home as much as possible. Go out only when it is very necessary. Although these actions are not fool proof, it will cut down your chances of catching the virus greatly.

During such uncertain times, we should be happy that we are healthy and not sick. We should remain upbeat and keep our sense of humour. It is said that laughter cures a multitude of ills – it is the best and cheapest medicine. As long as we have a sense of humour, we can laugh all the unpleasantness away.

Below are some humorous quips / witty comments. Some of them have a lot of truth in them too. I hope they bring on a chuckle, or put a smile on your face. So, relax, stay calm, and enjoy these quips.
