Brexit is coming whether we like it or not and while we don't know what's going to happen, we might as well make a meme out of it, right?

The UK decided it was time to up sticks and leave the European Union in 2016 and almost two years later it doesn't appear that we're any closer to the end result. EU leaders have just agreed to give the UK a little more time to decide what the hell we're doing and we have until Halloween (October 31) – well, this is kind of like a horror movie.

The best memes of 2019 (so far)

Negotiations have been taking place between the UK and the other EU countries to decide how much we'll have to pay to leave the EU, what will happen to people living abroad and how we'll trade between countries. And guuurrrl it's getting MESSY.

The Prime Minster Theresa May's deal was not approved by MPs in March, which means Brexit has been delayed. Basically, the UK now has to tell the EU what it wants to do next by April 12, or that will be Brexit day.

May tried to give us some reassurance, but yeah, still no clue. But amid the political chaos lies some humour. Yes, the internet has done its thing and managed to make light of the situation we're in.

So if you're feeling lost when it comes to Brexit (we all are, tbh) here are some of the most hilarious memes to pull you out of that depressing political funk.

First, they started with Theresa May. Yes, the UK might well be going up in flames.

Have you actually tried explaining it though...

No-one even wants to hear it anymore.

Basically, it's chaos.

Austin Powers illustrates it perfectly.

We're sensing a clear theme here.

Honestly, it's fine. Everything's okay.

Sometimes it's best to get all your information from a reliable source.

However, we can't guarantee we'll listen.

Pingu knows.

Help, we're a mess.

Okay, this is scarily accurate.

A classic.

Lets just wait for this to all blow over.

Um, we're waiting!?

Because there's nothing spookier than thinking about the future.

Coming to a theatre near you...

Help, now I'm really scared.
