Some of you may've watched last weekend's John Oliver segment about the UK elections (a major clusterfuck for Mrs May and the hard-Brexiters; but that's another long story). As ridiculous as some aspects of that election might have been, the one that sticks out for me is the inclusion of one Lord Buckethead, a mock candidate (they've got many in the UK) who ran against and eventually personally faced Mrs May.

He got 249 votes. And he had the most sensible message among them all. Which says a lot, really.

By the way, this isn't the first time Lord Buckethead had run in UK elections. Last two times were against Thatcher and Major.

Oh, and John Oliver has a neat idea about the upcoming Brexit negotiations, which are in shambles:
