As Brexit unfolds with all the grace of a bloated corpse falling out of a walk-in freezer and Donald Trump continues to, you know, be, villagers are finding comfort in the idea that all this is down to lizards.
“Look at the politicians and corporate overlords we have,” said local undertaker Carmine Fine. “I’d rather believe we were all being shafted by Reptilians who want to impose a global fascistic state then that some people voted in a big bunch of gits who let even richer gits run tax-free riot. Somehow it’s less distressing.”
“One of the lizards is going to slip up soon and accidentally shed their human skin in front of a camera,” she said. “Although it’s going to be very hard to tell the difference when creatures like Iain Duncan Smith reveal themselves to be cold-blooded nightmares without empathy or feelings.”
