After Saturday's announcement that President-elect Joe Biden will have his inauguration at the White House on Jan. 20, 2021, Donald Trump continues to refuse to concede in the U.S. presidential election, claiming that he will win the election and that there is voter fraud despite Biden exceeding 270 Electoral College votes.

Election fatigue for many has disappeared due to the promising news of Biden's nomination. Still, Trump and Trump supporters' disappointment and anger are also present after the election announcement. With Twitter and Instagram pages dedicated to roasting the election grow by the day, it's safe to say that there are different perspectives about the course of events on the internet, which can be highly entertaining in our social climate.

I'm here for every bit of it.

My friends and I will continue to share and tag each other in funny memes of the never-ending story of the election, which has not only proved to be some needed comedic relief living in a nation that is as divisive as ever — it's an ingenious and amusing approach to the harrowing reality of the U.S. and the direction we're heading in.

With that, check out my ultimate list of the funniest election memes that will have you have you 'LOL' all day.

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

What Should We Do When the Culture Wars Invade Our Children’s Lives?

You know when there’s a controversy whether to include both sides to the Holocaust in a Texas school district, the culture wars have once again invaded the children’s lives. Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)

These discussions by the school boards are impacted by the bills passed in government, as in the case of House Bill 3979 requiring public school teachers to present various points of view when teaching about current events and social issues. Often, the impulse to clutch pearls and to “think of the children” is a rhetorical device to further political causes. As the larger climate in a racialized society such as the United States grapple with a history of slavery and the fight for racial justice--with the most current iteration being the black lives matter protests in the summer of 2020--what the children learn in schools have become a new battleground for those who land on opposing sides of this culture war.

Why I don’t always expect my children to be completely truthful

Personally, I don’t expect the kids to always be completely truthful. Sometimes their truth bombs can be very unwelcome

Why I don’t always expect my children to be completely truthful

It's 7 am on a Wednesday.

My five-year-old bursts into our room like a whirlwind, and I blearily say good morning and remind him that he's going into school dressed in his onesie and wellies for a "wild rumpus day."

He replied, "Yes, I know. Don't forget we need to bring in sausages for the party".

Suddenly I'm wide awake and interrogating him; "What sausages? What party? What do you mean we're bringing sausages?!" I have a vague memory of going into school as a kid with sausage rolls or cheese and pineapple sticks for end-of-year parties, but I didn't think that was still a thing.
