I think we could all use a little dose of humor in our lives right now, right? With that in mind, below are 25 just plain funny quotes to help brighten your day! Some are even oddly inspirational!
Life has definitely been challenging (to say the least) over the last couple of weeks. It’s crazy how quickly things can get out of control. We went from “It’s no big deal, stop buying all the damn hand sanitizer and toilet paper” to “we urge you to stay home as much as possible” to “we’re shutting down literally everything we can to get you to stay home” to “we’re not asking, we’re telling.” People are even being arrested for getting married in their back yards for violating the new crowd restrictions.
So yeah, I definitely think we could all use a humor break. Laughter may not be the best medicine in the fight against the virus, but it’s the best mental health medicine!

I’m not going to spend a lot of time talking about each quote like I did with the Inspirational Quotes from Strong & Empowering Women post earlier this month. I’ll let them speak for themselves. 😀
