Well done, UK. You’ve officially hit a brand-new level in intelligence ratings, though in which direction, we’d rather not say.
Time for #Regrexit.
You’re even starting to give Texas ideas with what might be #Texit. Good luck with that.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump is yet experiencing another bad case of foot-in-mouth disease with his newest tweet on #Brexit:
Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2016
To which the good people of Scotland disabused him of his ill-gotten notions, and treated the rest of the world to some delightfully creative and colorful British profanity.
@realDonaldTrump Scotland voted IN you moron

@realdonaldtrump Scotland voted Remain, you weapons-grade plum.

Tumblr ( with some posts courtesy of Facebook) also had much to say about the insanity.
Contingency plans are in motion.
There’s no shortage of #Regrexit on Twitter, too.
How anyone can trust this man’s opinion is beyond me. We are a laughing stock of a country. Thank you #Brexit. pic.twitter.com/zWmVW67eVn

Brexiteers don’t seem to realise there is a difference between living in the past and learning from it. #REGREXIT

“I didn’t think was going to matter”
“I thought it was a protest vote”

Ah, linguistic innovation. When the dark clouds gather, you bring the grimly amusing silver linings.

This man who voted Leave is aghast that his vote actually happened. Why? Simply because he thought his vote didn’t really matter, and now he’s “quite worried”. (Folks, this is what happens when you make decisions that aren’t carefully thought through. Bad things happen.)
Did people call him out? You bet.
To the man on @BBCNews in Manchester who voted leave but is now “shocked” that his vote mattered and is now “worried”, well done sir. Moron.

@suziewright94 “I thought everyone else would vote to stay” was response I got this a.m. #gobshites

@suziewright94 Obviously many English don’t understand concept that 1+1+1+1 et seq equals more than 1! Amazing ignorance! @dikkii @BBCNews

Are you actually joking, man on @BBCNews?! ‘I voted to Leave, didn’t think my vote would matter’. LITERALLY UNBELIEVABLE
— Louisa Yates (@louisayates) June 24, 2016
Oh, don’t worry, worried Man on BBC. it looks like you’re in … uh… very panicked company.
The younger denomination of 18-24 year olds in the UK decried the final outcome of the vote. “A 90-year-old has more of a say in our lives than we do,” one teenager declared in the video below.
And now, a New Scotland independence referendum — a country that primarily voted “Remain” — is “highly likely”. This could be very well a new “Scexit”, this time out of the United Kingdom.
This observation, written by a commenter named Nicholas on The Financial Times‘ website, enumerates Brexit’s ‘three tragedies’ quite eloquently.
The most articulate take on #Brexit is actually this FT reader comment today. pic.twitter.com/98b4DwsrTV

In an Instagram post, this is what #Regretxit feels like.
