brexit cheese submarine tweet thread

Prime Minister May survived a No Confidence vote in the Parliament today. If only just. As for the cheese submarine, it’s a bit runny. It’s very runny, actually. A bit runnier than you’ll like it.

  1. way to make me feel old, Dr. O.
    Rifkin rips off a 1967 Beatles song ” we all live in a yellow submarine”
    and expects, like, man, nobody would, like, catch the boner.
    Cause they are all just too young, like, ya know, man.

  2. I presumed that Rifkin was referencing Yellow Submarine rather than ripping it off. In any case, one of the first, if not the first tweet in reply to his thread was “We all live on a yellow lump of brie, yellow lump of brie…” so even if he was betting no one would catch it, he lost that bet. The Beatles have not been forgotten by all those kids on our lawn, Spike, if only because they don’t have their own music and have to “steal” “ours”.

  3. My daughters (30 and 32) listen to those moldy oldies more than I do.
