The Funniest Tweets About Theresa May’s Extremely Awkward “Mexican Wave”Photo by Julian Finney/Getty Comedy Features Theresa May
Yesterday, British Prime Minister Theresa May attended a France vs. England soccer match with French President Emmanuel Macron in an attempt to remind everyone that she can have fun, too. Things unfortunately went awry when her robot brain wasn’t programmed to perform the Mexican wave, causing her to malfunction.

The incident prompted plenty of memes, most of them comparing the awkward timing of the wave to that of the impromptu general election that backfired when May lost her majority in the Parliament.
This hasn’t been the first instance of May’s recent efforts to appear more relatable. Just last week, she admitted that the “naughtiest” thing she’s ever done was run through fields of wheat as a child—a class one felony in the U.K.* How cheeky of you, Theresa.
Check out the best Twitter responses to the botched Mexican wave below.
*Running through fields of wheat is not at all illegal in the UK.
