I write a lot about how corrosive and depressing the internet can be. How miserable it is that a tool enabling instant communication between anyone, wherever they might be in the world; a collective mind capable of constantly renewal where the answer to every question can be found instantly, is used by most to look at porn and pictures of cats.

And porn.

This meme, I think based on a tweet from writer Chris Hall, for me articulates what can happen when a universal platform’s tropes are utilised to astutely deconstruct a complex political situation with smart arse simplicity.

If you prefer your observations to be less mired in the author’s love for tautology, the internet did a funny.
