The gang has gotten to the bottom of the pandemic, whodunit?

The global health emergency has shaken our society to its core. When we should be spending our first afternoons in beer gardens, we are alternatively cooped up indoors, doing our part to alleviate the crisis. 

There are few positives to take from the pandemic but one is certainly the memes. When the world is going to pot, all you can do is continue smiling and keep laughing.

Social media has launched up interesting phenomenal content in recent weeks and months. We are going to do our best to unpick and reveal our favorite Coronavirus memes, one such is centered around everyone's favorite mutt.

What is Scooby-Doo?

I can't believe I'm having to type this, but I dread Scooby-Doo isn't as integral a part of childhood as it was a decade or two ago. However, it is and never stopped being a necessary part of my life. Therefore at this age of my life, I highly doubt this will ever change for some odd reason. 

Fingers crossed, this is wasted energy, and readers the world over, are rolling their eyes, wondering, as I am, who on earth does know about Scooby-Doo?

For the uninitiated: Scooby-Doo is the single best canine detective of all time. Originally a cartoon, Scooby-Doo is part of the gang, a group of people that roam around a haunted town, solving fascinating - supernatural mysteries. 

Frankly, they were still appalled that the Scooby-Doo film didn't win an Oscar. By the way, I am too.

Anyway, what is the Scooby-Doo Coronavirus meme? One of the themes of Scooby-Doo was the big payoff at the end: the unmasking.

Freddie would have the villain bang to rights, usually tied up in rope of some sort, and he would rip off the scary monster's mask, to show that it was just Old Man Jenkins. It was always Old Man Jenkins, or Old Man Someone or Other.

The Scooby-Doo Coronavirus meme has made light of who has the most to gain from the pandemic, with Freddie pulling off the virus guise, asking: who is really behind the coronavirus?

We are in no way stoking conspiracy theories, I am merely an unpretentious entertainment writer (for this article) with no epidemiological knowledge.

The best examples of the Scooby-Doo Coronavirus meme: So, who has the most to gain?

We are big fans of this edition doing the rounds. When the panic shopping hit, people didn't go straight for pasta or tinned veg, for some reason they all went for toilet paper.

Then when the pandemic got worse and we're all forced to work from home, a video chat service arrived seemingly from the shadows. Who can, genuinely say they had heard of Zoom before we were all locked up?
