Disappointment as anti-austerity grumpy cat meme fails to halt austerity

author avatar by 9 years ago

There was disappointment earlier this week as the Chancellor implemented a pro-austerity budget despite many people sharing various pictures of cats, sad babies and Minions with anti-austerity slogans on them.

“I’m stunned,” said idiot Facebook drone Simon Williams.

“On Monday, someone posted a picture of a little girl sat in a puddle looking grumpy. The caption said, ‘Share if you want to halt austerity’.”

“So, I shared it but George Osborne implemented one of the most pro-austerity budgets imaginable.”

“I’m baffled. I mean, I’m not sure what else I could have done?”

The trend on Facebook of sharing thumbnail picture of sub-Athena quality pictures containing vague political has grown over the years due to the increasing stupidity of Facebook users.

But these users seem to be finally becoming disillusioned.

“It’s not on,” said one.

“I liked a picture of George Osborne with devil horns that was captioned ‘Like to tell George Osborne what you think of him,’ but as far as I can tell, it hasn’t even given him pause for thought.”

“It’s disgraceful. Frankly, I’m tempted to start a Facebook petition about it.”

When contacted, the Chancellor’s office claimed never to have heard of Facebook, but they were going look into whether or not they would be able to charge poor people a levy for accessing it.
