Roberta Metsola refusing to shake the hand of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat this morning has been memed to the nines already – barely an hour after the original photo emerged.
Malta’s coming in hot with the top quality content, proving that despite the rage inside of us all right now we are still capable of seeing the lighter side of everything.
Just in case you’re somehow unaware of the current situation on social media, we thought we’d give you a little roundup of some of the best memes to come from this all so far:
1. Yes, we’re starting with our own
Because we’ve all had to carry a bunch of idiots’ grade point average up with our undeniable intelligence.
2. Roberta Metsola is everyone’s mother at some point
And yes, that means we’ve all been Muscat at some point, too.
3. When you need to borrow a pencil
Thanks, Metsola, real nice friend.
4. How egg-citing
We don’t condone egging anyone, but Owen Bonnici did take that splat like a champ.
5. Trigger Warning: coeliacs look away
When you can’t piss off the vegans, you cut deeper.
6. Would you like to hear about Melita’s latest offers?
This photo is to the world of memes what The Artist was to film, if you replace Metsola with l-Amerikana and Joseph Muscat with Mark Laurence Zammit. Biżżejjed.
7. What we all needed to hear
We’ll say no more.
8. This trio of #OnlyInMalta memes
Where’s the lie?
9. Another trio of #OnlyInMalta memes
For everyone laughing now, we will win Eurovision at some point. It is statistically possible. We think/hope.
10. The mother of all battles
It’s a legit problem, and it divides so many of us at critical points in the country’s history.
BONUS: We just had to
Trigger warning to all the people still mentioning this shit three years later.
