As Europeans struggle to survive in the current heat wave, many of them are coping with Twitter memes.
Over the last few days, words such as “baked”, “sizzling” and “scorching” have been used aplenty to describe the weather in England and parts of Europe.
A cursory glance at Twitter will show you that it is raining memes on the micro-blogging site.
Taking a dig at the long history of British colonisation, one user said, “British people struggling in this heat wave…Stay strong… your ancestors colonised entire countries in this heat.”
A person, from Europe, even dropped a hilarious image to show just how they are coping with the heat. In the caption, he said, “I think I may have been out in the Sun a touch too long.”
Another user posted a very apt scene from the Simpsons.
It is also no surprise that our furry friends are also on the receiving end of this heat wave. A user posted a picture of their cat with a funny caption from the cat’s perspective.
Last week, many parts of England recorded a scorching 40 degrees, following which the Meteorological office released the first ever red weather warning for rising temperatures. As per reports, the National Health Service has stated that the weather amounts to a national emergency, placing lives at risk.
Meanwhile, wildfires are rampant in many parts of Europe such as France and Spain, with entire towns being taken over by fires due to the scorching heat, with hundreds of casualties.
