Chip off the old block

These photos of Theresa May awkwardly eating chips have become a huge meme

Has she seen a chip before?

THERESA MAY HAS been having a weird few months, hasn’t she? Brexit, holding hands with Trump, general elections, and now this.

The British Prime Minister has been getting out of London for a bit, heading down to Cornwall yesterday for some hand-shaking and baby-kissing.

There, she was handed a cup of chips, a well-known tasty snack.

Or is it? Because she didn’t seem all that familiar with the concept.

“What is this? Oh, you eat them? With your hands? …Jolly good.”

Not convinced by the whole thing, is she?

The reaction to the pictures was swift, as you may well imagine – and they’re well on their way to becoming the next big political meme.

“Trademark sinister look.” LOL.

STRONG AND STABLE POTATO STICKS.

The Guardian has suggested that ‘Theresa May eating a chips’ is the ‘Ed Miliband eating a bacon sandwich’ of 2017. The former Labour leader appears to agree:

In these uncertain times, we’ll take whatever we can get.
