These 22 ridiculous headlines prove what a wild ride 2020 has been already

Try explaining these to your 2019 self

This year has been crazy. Some of the things that have actually happened you would think have come straight out of a table read for a new series of Riverdale. Seriously, the headlines 2020 has given us have been nothing short of insanity.

Imagine trying to explain to someone in 2019 that sex with someone from outside of your household is literally illegal. Or that people were going to be fighting in supermarkets over toilet roll. A few years ago nobody had ever heard of Dominic Cummings, and now he’s a meme sensation. And who had an “underwater ghost village frozen in time set to resurface” on their bingo card?

Here are some of the wildest headlines from 2020 so far. Strap in, these are a lot.
