With Boris Johnson becoming Britain’s next Prime Minister, their American cousins over the water cannot help but notice the similarities in their choice for leader. Brash, outspoken, somewhat goofy – not to mention sporting a silly yellow haircut – they could be forgiven for thinking that the UK have appointed Donald Trump V2.0. Although some would consider imitation the sincerest form of flattery, there remains a part of every population who get upset about anything and everything and you guessed it – they’re upset about this.
“Voting in a yellow haired jerkoff was our idea!” said American resident, Lotta Guns (34). “It’s just not right. I even heard him say they were going to ‘Make Britain Great Again!’ That’s plagiarism and we should sue!”
While it is true there are some similarities between the two leaders, Boris is not married to a model, is well liked by his party, and is yet to be hamstrung by a two-year Russian scandal that turns out to be a complete dud. Until these three things happen, the case for plagiarism will remain weak at best.
Unless Boris starts talking about rebuilding Hadrian’s Wall to keep the Scots out, then it might just stand up in court.
