When parents become meme-lovers

It’s not only our screen time that has increased significantly since we are in self-isolation, but also that of our parents. Now that playing card games with friends or babysitting grandchildren is not possible, the older generation is also mainly in virtual contact with friends and family. More intensive texting has automatically let them come into contact with typical internet humor, that is spread through chats. Since the corona virus, project manager and Hmm-friend Deborah Meibergen has been bombarded with Coronavirus-inspired memes by both her parents. Most are so bland that she doesn’t like them, but the following did make her laugh a little:

Gloved Creation of Adam

A Dutch way to prevent contamination

A UK answer to the shortage of masks

Drug dealers in times of Covid-19

How to sneeze in an elevator

A predictive Dutch clip from the ’50’s
