Look; we here at ITM understand what a frightening time it is out there right now with the coronavirus pandemic in full swing. People are getting sick and the only thing we everyday citizens can do is stay indoors, wash our hands and keep our germs to ourselves. It’s a time defined by uncertainty, worry, and (though it might sound callous), boredom.
No matter how many Disney movies and tv shows are available on Disney Plus, (including a new arrival from Pixar coming soon), it can be tough to find something to smile at when all the media offers is coronavirus news that is sad, grim, horrible … aaand sad again. Heck, even we’ve contributed our fair share of gloomy stories like the closure of all Disney theme parks, most Disney movies like Mulan being pushed back, and various cases of unemployment caused by the virus, in order to keep you informed.
However, we’ve also tried to offer you tips to keep the kids busy, highlighted new services now on offer, and even advised which LEGO sets to build to keep you busy. And if there’s one thing you can rely on the internet to do in a global crisis, it’s make memes about it.
Twitter and Facebook have swarmed with coronavirus memes, particularly around the suggested social isolation measures. Many of these chucklers use classic Disney movies as their template, and well … as Disney fans, they’re pretty funny. So here are some of the best Disney coronavirus memes that we could find.
We first and foremost want to make absolutely clear that there is nothing funny about the virus and the effect it’s having on good people and good companies. However, if we can’t laugh at what an unprecedented and bizarre situation it is for the vast majority of us, what can we do? We in no way mean to make light of the real troubles of those who have the disease, or those who have lost family because of it, we’re simply trying to share a little cheer for all those Disney lovers who are doing their bit to help the human race by staying indoors.
Thank you all. Keep doing what you can, and most of all please continue to be patient and kind. It will get better.
If you’re easily offended or are feeling particularly worried, maybe stop here. If you’re just in need of a good laugh, however, read on.
