    35 Ways Of Describing Brexit, Ranked By How Much They Sound Like Sex Things

    Because sometimes Brexit things sound like sex things. (H/T to Jon Worth's Euroblog.)

    35. "Unlawful Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    Of all the ways Brexit has been described, this is the least like a sex thing. Under no circumstances should this sound like a sex thing.

    34. "Train-Crash Brexit"

    Financial Times / Via

    This is not how sex things should be described.

    33. "Disorderly Crash Landing Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    This is also not how sex things should be described. However, it is at least kinda relatable, from a sex thing perspective.

    32. "Short, Sharp Brexit"

    Politico / Via


    31. "Grey Brexit"

    Politico / Via

    Not an especially sex Brexit, except for the fact that old people totally do sex things. Your parents are probably doing sex things right now.

    30. "Transitional Brexit"

    The Independent / Via

    Sometimes you are in a relationship and you do sex things, but then you stop being in a relationship, and yet continue to do sex things.

    29. "Red, White And Blue Brexit"

    BBC / Via

    Maybe you do sex things underneath a union jack, because you have become overwhelmed by both patriotism and horniness?

    28. "Hokey Cokey Brexit"

    The Express / Via

    Definite sex thing. But a weird sex thing.

    27. "Dog's Brexit"

    The Scotsman / Via

    Bad sex thing.

    26. "Schrödinger’s Brexit"

    The Economist / Via

    When you can't tell if the sex thing is inside the box or not.

    25. "Brexit In Name Only"

    Euro Pacific Capital / Via

    Your first teenage sex thing, when you didn't actually really do the sex thing, but told your friends you did.

    24. "Half-In, Half-Out Brexit"

    New Statesman / Via

    Another classic teenage sex thing.

    23. "Smart Brexit"

    22. "Stupid Brexit"

    Huffington Post / Via

    When it isn't.

    21. "Chaotic Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    I think we have all been in this sex thing scenario.

    20. "Bespoke Brexit"

    ITV News / Via

    This is a sex thing when you've been together for a few years.

    19. "Cliff Edge Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    Sex things should not happen on cliff edges, however there are undoubtedly such thrill seekers out there. Maybe a sex thing with that guy from Poldark, looking handsome and troubled on a cliff edge.

    18. "Soft Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    A sex thing, but maybe not a very satisfying sex thing.

    17. "Clean Brexit"

    Wall Street Journal / Via

    Where you take a shower both before and after doing the sex thing.

    16. "Goldilocks Brexit"

    Business Insider / Via

    Who's been sleeping in MY bed? You have.

    And you did a sex thing.

    15. "Open Brexit"

    The Times / Via

    When you do sex things with loads of people, and that's cool, because you talked about it beforehand.

    14. "Long Brexit"

    Financial Times / Via

    Overrated sex thing.

    13. "Slow Brexit"

    New Statesman / Via

    Underrated sex thing.

    12. "Smooth Brexit"

    The Guardian / Via

    The sort of sex thing a man who self-identifies as a "lothario" would say, when boasting to another man about how all the ladies love his sex moves.

    Oh yeah, oh we're getting into the good stuff now. The good sex things.

    7. "Messy Brexit"

    Reuters / Via

    That sex thing where you've done the sex thing and the sex thing made you feel really good, but then you get a slow, dawning moment of clarity about the fact that it was kind of weird and gross.

    6. "Rough Brexit"

    BBC / Via

    Everybody likes a bit of a rough sex thing now and then. Just don't forget consent! (i.e., a second referendum and/or parliamentary vote on the final deal.)

    5. "Hard Brexit"

    Al Jazeera / Via

    The kind of Brexit you see in porn.

    4. "Reckless Hard Brexit"

    Variety is the spice of life!

    2. "Brexit That Could Threaten Western Political Civilisation"
