The last round of U.S. stimulus checks were distributed in April for $1,200 to help us for 2 months. Here we are, 9 months later, and the latest round of proposed stimulus checks are for *checks notes* $600.
Congress is old AF so I guess it’s not that surprising that they essentially just told the whole country, “Here’s $5, go get yourself a candy bar…and stay off our lawn!”
Needless to say, Twitter has some feelings about all of this. So here are some of the funniest tweets about these $600 checks that’ll help you laugh through the pain (but unfortunately won’t help much with your utility bill either):[adsanity id=”35664″ align=”alignnone”/]

Remember to treat yo’ self! With whatever $600 will buy you. So maybe not so much “treat” as “pay off a very small portion of your credit card debt” yo’ self.
