Boris Johnson, a man who called Turkey's president a goat fucker, now represents Britain on the world stage.
And people all over the world find it hilarious.
But it's the Germans who are coming out with the best zingers.
"Why did they appoint Boris Johnson as foreign secretary? Was Voldemort unavailable?"
"Boris Johnson just fired James Bond and plans to take care of everything by himself."
"Worldwide reactions after the announcement of Boris Johnson as foreign secretary."
"Boris Johnson as foreign secretary? Now we understand that Little Britain was never meant to be satirical."
"Boris Johnson as foreign secretary? That must be the British humour everyone is talking about."
"Boris Johnson is going to be foreign secretary."
"Boris Johnson, her majesty's future most senior diplomat."
"The serious retweet. And now the unfiltered emotional reaction."
"Breaking! Mr Bean to be British transport secretary."
"Good luck, Great Britain!"
But not everyone in Germany thinks Johnson is a harmless buffoon. The country's foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, just called him "irresponsible" for having orchestrated the Brexit crisis and then casually gone to play cricket.
