The beginning of the week started with Brexit, and, to cut right to the chase, it only went downhill from there (read: England lost to Iceland and got knocked out of Euro 2016).
A quick recap of the game:
#Brexit was the top theme after the 2-1 defeat, leading Britain to also exit Euro 2016 (this is Brexit joke #1 if you’re looking to keep count).
*cue Brexit joke #2*
Some distraught England fans took right to the streets and started a petition for a rematch. Unsure if the country really wants to leave this up to a vote, though, considering how the last one turned out (Brexit joke count: 3).
Wouldn’t be a proper loss without a Crying Jordan meme or two, or a lot.
In true British fashion, individual Englishmen are starting to take their individual exits (that’s #4): England’s manager Roy Hodgson has retired. Do we just call this #Rexit? (#5).
England could blame Brexit for the loss, they could blame Iceland, but they really may only be able to blame themselves.
(This was probably also Britain’s response to Britain after they knocked themselves out of the EU. I think I’ve lost count of #Brexitjokes).
Meanwhile, in Iceland:
Scream your hearts and lungs out Iceland, you deserve it.
