A little humor to ease the pain…

Happy GDPR Day! Email inboxes everywhere rejoice as “the silence of the spam” begins today (May 25, 2018) thanks to the new EU data privacy law, known by the acronym GDPR.

While the consequences of non-compliance are no laughing matter, the entire online world has been reacting with humor over the mounds of GDPR messages they’ve been receiving. To celebrate GDPR deadline day, which conveniently coincides with National Wine Day in the US, we’ve poured a fresh glass of funny and collected some of our favorite laughs from GDPR Day.

GDPR had some breaking out into song lyrics:

How we all feel after today…


What do you mean the fortune isn’t real?

How the week up to GDPR felt…


GDPR message in a bottle…

Some of us were wishing we could time travel…


Jam out to the GDPR playlist (listen to it here via Spotify)

Thankfully, it’s also National Wine Day in the United States:


Rage Against the Machine, but not against GDPR:

GDPR is one with the force, and the force is one with GDPR:


Oh, and by the way, we’ve made some updates to our privacy policy. If you’d like to continue receiving funny memes from LeadMD…
