Peter and MJ in Spider-Man: Far From Home labeled my plans, and Mysterio labeled The Delta Variant.

Our Fall Plans Have Met Their Match as Twitter Memes Through the Delta Variant Pain

Recommended Videos

And we’re right back at it—meaning the memes about COVID have returned, this time with our plans vs. the Delta Variant. For so many of us, we thought that this fall might be somewhat normal again, since a vaccine is readily available and anyone can go out and get it (with the exception of children under the age of 12). Instead, we have seen an influx of excuses as to why people will not get the vaccine, and staggering spread of disease.

So now, all those fall plans we thought we could have are in limbo, and many of us had such hope. Out of that despair, though, has come a brand new meme that is a hilarious callback to the March memes of old and the constant struggle of our optimism towards people doing the right thing constantly backfiring on us all. I can’t wait for the “My plans for the future vs Rest of my life on earth fighting a pandemic” memes.

For ours, we did Peter and MJ in Spider-Man: Far From Home just enjoying their trip and going to the theater, and then the Delta Variant is Mysterio.

Sadly, Twitter shined at making memes because what else have we been doing for the last year?

Will we ever be free from making memes about all our plans vs. COVID? Probably not, at this rate, but at least they’re funny!
