Last week the world witnessed Brexit, in which citizens of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.

It is not the purpose of this blog to comment on controversial political issues in any meaningful way.  

The blog may, though, comment in a non-meaningful way.  Thus, I will offer two opinions.  

1. Supporters of Brexit should have been known as the Brexit Club, in reference to the John Hughes movie

2. The motto of the Brexit movement should have been "Brekekekexit Koax Koax", from the frogs of Aristophanes.  One might object that a motto based on ancient Greek drama is too arcane for modern politics; however, the motto does fit well with the image that we like to have of the English sitting in drawing rooms saying witty and learned things.
