Social distancing is here and with it comes the inability to get closer than 6 feet to other human beings. Our lives are very weird right now. Everyone is working from home, stocking up on self-quarantine supplies, and trying to stay far away from the masses of humanity.
Thankfully, we still have the Internet, which has allowed us to keep our sanity in the one way the Internet generation knows how: memes.
Even if we're all depressed that the world has gone to poo, we can keep our spirits up with the sideways humor of sticking words on pictures and sharing them hundreds of thousands of times. You don't even have to go looking for them! We've compiled the creme de la creme of the social distancing memes and they're right here for you to look at while you "work from home." It's better to laugh, that way you don't cry.
It all started with toilet paper memes.

The weirdness is how we stay sane, right?We all need some exercise, this is good for us! And then I'll get more exercise by cleaning it up afterward! Everything is great!
I guess if you can't be around other people it's an excuse to have a party with yourself.
And no virus meme collection would be complete without a good sex joke.

At least your real coworkers are staying far away.Even if you have lived through more Zoom meetings than you ever wanted in your life. Please, stop making me share my face via webcam. It's just not flattering.
Of course since the virus is hitting around the world, we had to have some friendly international ribbing.
It's important to keep up contact with the people you care about.

But if we're honest, we like to choose when we're going to isolate.If someone else tells me to I'm not going to. I want to be lonely and depressed on my own terms.
But if you're feeling crabby about being home, the internet will see you through with puns.
