US Army Perplexed About The Fuss Over #Brexit: “We Did It First”
by Hugh Jashol
While news of the the UK referendum to leave the European Union roils stock markets and world politics, the US Army is wondering what the fuss is all about.
Known as the #Brexit, the vote to sever the UK from the EU has most of the world as worried as they were back when the “Y2K bug” was still a thing. Yet, there is something… comfortably familiar about #Brexit for most American veterans.
“Bro, we #Brexit’ed back in like 1775,” said Specialist Stanley Klinghofer, 21, who by virtue of his University of Phoenix Online associate’s degree is his platoon’s expert on both history and world politics. “So what’s the big deal?”
“Look, everyone is always talking about guns and health care and are all like ‘America, why can’t you be more like Europe?’” Klinghofer said. “But now look at that, Europe is trying to be all #America. Again.”
“America: the world’s first democracy, the first in the world to do a #Brexit. We did it before, we’ll do it again. We veterans aren’t afraid of ANYTHING,” he added, before going out to his front yard to post a “combat veteran lives here, please be courteous with fireworks” sign in preparation for the Fourth of July.
Article 107 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice covers “false official statements.” As our name implies, we are a satire site and you shouldn’t think anything we post is real. You should, however, mercilessly mock anyone who does, especially anyone who wants to point out that the American Revolution wasn’t anything close to a #Brexit, and that the picture we used in this piece is Washington crossing the Delaware, NOT the Atlantic. Yeah bro, we got that, thanks. If you want real news, visit our sister site, The Havok Journal.
