This Grindr message might be the best thing Brexit has given us

In an age when Brexit doom and gloom is slapped across every broadsheet and news station, it's nice to know there are people out there who know how to make light of the situation.

Sure we could sit back and watch as Theresa May and Leo Varadkar argue about economics and borders, or, like one Grindr user did, we could use the political jargon to get ourselves a date.

London based actor, James Walker-Black, was recently trying his luck in the world of online dating when he received what is quite possibly the most pun-tastic opening message ever sent.

And of course, living in a world that thrives on social media, James had to share it with the twittersphere.


As expected, Twitter absolutely loved his creativity and called for James to marry this man immediately. 

So, did James and this mysterious pun enthusiast ever meet? 

Unfortunately not. According to The Irish Examiner, his response was not met with the same praise. 

“It may have been because I said ‘I might take you up on that offer’ and really should have made some sort of EU pun,” the 26-year-old said.

“But I’d had like three bottles of wine at that point so wasn’t particularly feeling witty.”

Hey, you win some, you lose some – at least we got a giggle out of it!
