A pathetic amount of money that has little to no use.
I searched under the couch cushions for enough money to buy myself a popsicle but only found a stimulus-check.

to check if the other person is in the mood for romance, or if you just got a mixed signal.
I thought my wife's hand was touching my leg this morning, but it was just the dog under the blankets. I had to do a stimulus check just to be sure

A way to pacify a group of people you've just deployed the national guard and police against after stealing from millions of people they tell that they're concerned about for years.
Here's your stimulus check, you won't mind if the national guard tells you where you can go and what you can do from now on will you? They're concerned about you, don't be concerned about them, be a good puppet and comply with everything they say, it's in your best interest.

A way for the government to walk away from the fight with their citizens.
Stimulus checks, gifts, gadgets, and other items are intended for the government to get to walk away from the fight withv
their citizens. As long as everybody is following their orders, the chains are invisible and there is no fight evident.

Myth , something that does not exist. A unicorn of sorts. A way for the government to get your updated personal information under the false pretense of you getting something in return.
The IRS promised me a stimulus check but clearly lied.

Money that the (US) government hands out to its citizens during desperate times, not because they care about you, but because they're afraid you won't be spending enough money to boost the economy during this period.

Interesting fact: the "stimulus" in stimulus check isn't used in the psychological or physiological sense. Rather, it is referring to the economics concept of stimulating the economy (i.e. encouraging the transaction of commodities).

The fact that the name itself is in reference to the economy rather than you, the citizen, shows the shallowness behind it all.
Stimulus checks are a way of saying that the government cares, but not in the way that you'd imagine it.

The Canadian equivalent of a stimulus check is called CERB/CRB, which stands for 'Canada Emergency Response Benefit' and 'Canada Recovery Benefit', respectively. It has—from the very start—been giving out $2000 checks every month per individual. At least the Canadian name has a better ring to it.
