I think most people have been dreading today. Even though the act of democracy in itself is rather beautiful, election days are inevitably ugly. No matter who wins, we are guaranteed to see a messy whirlwind of vitriol and anger.
But there have also been some laughs. Twitter is filled with election day gallows humor. Here are some of the best tweets that made me laugh slash weep uncontrollably.
Britain offers tea and sympathy
Royal Jordanian spots an opportunity
This is actually how elections work
Britain has bigger problems.
Voters out (for Harambe)
Probably the only feel-good story of today. Cherish it.
Still better than a Vox explainer
A high-chair isn’t a platform
Eric Trump accidentally breaks the law
I always had her pegged as a Vermin Supreme fan, myself
A pretty apt metaphor
Ted Cruz still can’t get a break
Best vine of the campaign?
I’d put money on that
Fun fact: Hillary Clinton actually has a burn book
Less stressful than endlessly refreshing FiveThirtyEight
Okay, that was pretty funny.
My contribution (I’m sorry)
More to come
Provided that I’m not catatonic with sadness or fear, or that I’m not just completely shitfaced (and really, could you blame me?), I’m going to keep updating this. If you’ve seen any hilarious tweets, let me know in the comments below!
