“I’ve just turned off the news and put on a serial killer documentary to relax”

"I’ve just turned off the news and put on a serial killer documentary to relax” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The news often gets people angry or depressed—the opposite of relaxation. The news in 2020-21 was especially unsettling because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

“Literally just read up on an old serial killer to take my mind off the news. #selfcare” was posted on Twitter by James Francis Flynn on October 4, 2018. “Sometimes you just have to turn off the news and relax by learning everything there is to know about serial killers” was posted on Twitter by Missy Baker on November 4, 2020.

“Need to turn off the news and decompress...maybe a documentary on serial killers....” was posted on Twitter by Gabe Menescal on January 7, 2021. “I just turned off the news and put on a serial killer documentary to relax” was posted on Twitter by TheTinderBlog on January 8, 2021.

You know it’s bad when you have to switch from the news to a documentary about serial killers just to relax. 😳😬

The past ten months have been so stressful; I actually saw a tweet that read, “The news is so stressful, I turned on a serial killer documentary to relax.”
