15 Funny Quotes to Help You Survive Monday Morning, Because Everyone Should Start the Week Off Laughing

When Monday morning rolls around, I tend to take a "less is more" approach to talking, mostly because I'm afraid that, in my pre-coffee haze, I will either end up saying something mean that I'll regret, or something that doesn't actually consist of real words (unggghhugh is a common morning greeting I like to use). But just because I'm not talking doesn't mean others aren't — there are tons of hilariously funny Monday quotes to be found on the Internet, and because I believe we should start our week off with a laugh, I've rounded them up here for your amusement. Go ahead and get your coffee — I'll wait — but then get back here so we can all have a chuckle together, OK?

Contrary to popular belief, Mondays don't have to be the worst. And there's an old saying or something about laughter being the best medicine, so why not give that good old-fashioned remedy a go? From Michael Scott spewing wisdom to Cindy Crawford talking about the struggles of being Cindy Crawford, here are 15 lol-worthy quotes to help you get through those painful first few hours of the work week. Oh, and I included a bunch of cute cat gifs too, just to throw a few "awws" in the mix. No need to thank me — happy Monday!
