“I tried to come up with a joke about social distancing. This is as close as I could get”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic caused many to “socially distance” themselves from others. People tried to come up with jokes, and this was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 22, 2020:

“I tried to come up with a joke about social distancing. This is as close as I could get.”
