There's a strong chance you woke up Friday morning to bad news that wasn't just your Thursday night hangover -- specifically, bad news about the United Kingdom's referendum to leave the European Union, commonly referred to as the "Brexit."
There's also a strong chance you have no idea what the Brexit means, either -- and based on Google search spikes, if you're British, that's assured. But never fear! Satirical news shows have your back. Or your explanation, at least, because who really needs their backs defended in 2016?
Regardless, on the most recent edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver dives into just why this vote for Brits to leave the EU is such a poor idea. Of course, it's funny and biting -- but it also contextualizes the xenophobia, financial implications, and overall uncertainty over what the Brexit truly means.
In a fit of irony, or perhaps just idiocy, Sky Atlantic wasn't able to broadcast this clip until after the vote, either, according to Techly, given legalities prohibiting the broadcast of partisan messages leading up to elections and referendums. Politics!
Watch, laugh, and learn why the UK likely just made a dunderheaded, disastrous choice.
