I really didn't expect Brexit to happen. Neither did most people, apparently. And in typical human fashion there is a huge overreaction by both the leavers, who no doubt will overplay their winning, and the remainers who will wax lyrical about how bad this is for the entire universe. And those like me, largely unaffected, who are wailing louder than everyone.
The result doesn't necessarily mean that Britain's policies on everything will automatically become diametrically opposed to the EU, it means they have the right to decide for themselves. And surely, in the long term, that isn't a bad thing. It also doesn't mean that Britain is speaking out for disunity, just independence. I get it.
That's all I have to say for now. But I did find some funny clips. Because laughing at ourselves, whatever we believe, gives us perspective. And that's what we need right now. This first one has a language warning - set to music.
Of course, Buzzfeed went to the streets to find out whether Trump was scarier than Brexit.
But the funniest is this clip from "Yes Minister" of why Britain joined the EU in the first place.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, everyone!
