Usually, I am all about intentional team activities, but sometimes you just want a quick laugh to wake people up in your online team meeting. Funny polls are a way to quickly engage and energize your team with a little bit of humor.
An example of a funny poll is:
What are you wearing on your bottom half (off-camera) right now?
- PJ bottoms
Here are some additional funny and light-hearted polls that would only take 1-2 minutes to post and share.

How would you measure your commute today?
When my alarm clock goes off in the morning I…
- Get right up
- Hit snooze once to get my bearings
