Guy Explains Brexit In 12 Hilarious Tweets And It Will Crack You Up

Brexit

Brexit has, entirely predictably, descended into chaos. The world looks on scratching its head while the British, people who are formerly known for their stoic pragmatism, engage in an epic episode of national self-harm based largely on delusions of grandeur, nostalgia for days past and barely concealed mistrust of ‘Johnny Foreigner.’

However, despite the absolute shitshow that is currently unfolding, the Brits haven’t forgotten one of their more positive national characteristics. Bitingly dark and self-deprecating humor is a reflex response to the crisis so while their state continues to fail from one humiliation to the next, people try to see the bright side by at least having a laugh about it.

Hugo Rifkind, son of a conservative politician and columnist of The Times, came up with an amusing analogy on Twitter recently, comparing Brexit to a ‘Cheese Submarine.’ The thread highlights the absurd self-delusion that Brexiters have been engaged in over the past couple of years, and it went viral because it is true, in the comically-tragic kind of way that Brits just really relate to.

The responses to Rifkind’s thread were even better though. Everyone loves a good pun, don’t they? Cheese and its many different varieties lends itself well to a social media pun showdown, and ricotta say, people didn’t disappoint!
