Humour might be the one thing all of us accepted with open arms throughout the pandemic. Even though we are not completely past the virus, we have still come to a time where talking about the initial time with past tense gives a sense of relief. The stimulus check meme era seems to be past us, but we might still have hope for a comeback with the new debates in Congress under President Biden.
Earlier in 2020, Covid-19 halted all businesses completely without means for people to go through with their day-to-day expenses. This was when the government first started sending out payments to citizens under the American Rescue Plan Act. So far there have been 3 different stimulus check payments under that act, for $1400, $600, and $1200, sent out to tax registered citizens.
All this was an urgent necessary measure required by the government to care and provide for the people they are responsible for. A government in a democracy is made for its people and run according to the needs of the people, therefore this entire payment plan was necessary. But that does not mean it was enough for everyone struggling to make ends meet. Humour however helped a lot cope, and we can only hope it comes back after another payment gets greenlighted by Congress.
Here are some top ones we found from the stimulus check meme bag:
Anti-gun laws anyone?
Cannot choose whether we want to drag the stimmy or the gun laws of the country. As a person in the working class, you will have more to complain about our country’s laws and it will be justified. America has a lot of work to do.
Tiny doggo has more elegant taste than all of us
You might have all the branded commodities in the world, but you cannot buy elegance. This little doggo went viral after someone posted this photo under the stimulus check meme trend.
A thread of memes for the imaginative
Asking all the essential questions, we love to see it.
And a face mask too, please.
Where are you hiding them?
Gatherers of secrets, masters of knowledge assemble.
He deserves it.
Ah, a classic roast on the American healthcare system and its inability to be remotely affordable.
You get the point. Ask for the impossible. Only if your imagination allows it.
The mysterious pocket
It is important to be aware and we’re glad to bring this important information to you. Now all the ‘women’s pay vs men’s pay’ jokes can finally die.
Shoot for the stars, or billionaires in this case
If you are not using your Amazon account for this after getting your stimulus check, you’re not doing it right.
Remember friends, do not let anyone feed you rubbish about how the government is doing us any favors. When you pay taxes you sign up for what is the government’s responsibility to make sure you live a secure happy life. When there is a national crisis such as the pandemic or economic instability that leads to people losing their jobs and businesses, that same tax money is used to provide relief.
It’s what the people deserve, it’s your own money coming back to you, rightly. Do not settle for less when asking your lawmakers to do their jobs. Oh, and enjoy Spongebob memes while you’re at it.
Somebody posted this on Twitter and it felt very accurate of how the money covers our needs. It is something, but how long can you live on something real. Memes help though, so keep at it.
Agatha was right
If you still have not watched Disney+’s WandaVision, this is your sign to do so. Don’t worry, this is no major spoiler. It’s just a friendly and helpful neighbor, Agatha… Well, this crossover is all you need to know how we spent our stimmy.
Well, all those times you told your barber you loved the haircut and cried on your way home are gone. This time you can just choose the bad haircut yourself, because when the stimmy hits, who knows what you might end up fashioning.
Every field trip and school party ever
We have all been a victim of this pizza slice. You ever can’t sleep at night excited about the party, having fun with your friends, and not doing any school work? Yeah, we thought so. And you get the great fun-filled party too, there’s music, dancing, no work most importantly, but then it’s time to eat and you get this.
This is what it feels like to get the stimulus checks after a grueling year and more in a pandemic.
There is another, fourth to be exact, stimulus payment under works in the Congress, who knows what it might add to the stimulus check meme trend. But don’t worry, keep coming back, we will keep you posted.
