These 25 jokes on the internet are helping us understand inflation and our money situation better and reducing our woes a little bit.
Our bank accounts are drying, and our eyes welling up. Everything is expensive nowadays. In May 2022, the inflation rate went up 8.6% from the previous year - the highest since 1981, according to CBS News. And survival in this dystopian world is more difficult than ever. It seems like only jokes are cheap and affordable. They are also gaining value with time.
When nothing's working, jokes about the price hike, petrol hikes, and increased inflation rates are balms to the aching heart. Since money is not friendly to us, Twitter, as always, has found ways to poke fun at it. Their money memes and jokes are even helping us understand the money situation better. We have collected a bunch of fun and relatable tweets to fill up your laughter accounts since our bank situation is not any better than yours. Let's begin.
