With a global pandemic shaking the financial markets and a military escalation between the U.S. and Iran, this has been quite a week -- so it is not surprising that people are freaking out. Of course, the fact that the work week draws to a close on Friday the 13th is some next-level irony, so kudos to whatever cosmic force made that call. As you might expect, there are a fair number of people on social media -- both serious and joking -- who have quite a lot more to say today than they would about a "normal" Friday the 13th when it didn't seem everything was already on fire.
Even with most of the good movies cancelled, the CDC advising people to avoid crowds, and more or less every professional sport taking some time out, there's still some fun stuff to do -- even if it's just cruising through Twitter and finding the endless sea of Jason Voorhees jokes.
You can check out some of the best tweets below.
Jason got it right

Jason walks out of the lake.
There is no one anywhere to kill.
Finally sees one person. Jason walks up to kill him, machete raised. Guy points at Jason and says
"The mask is a good idea."

#HubbleFriday In true Friday the 13th style, a star appears to have been torn apart and devoured by a ravenous supermassive black hole at the center of spiral galaxy NGC 1589.

I mean...at least he has a plan.
