The 15 funniest captions of the pics of Boris Johnson’s phone call with Joe Biden
Having congratulated President-elect Biden on his win, Boris Johnson has had his first post-election conversation with the next ‘leader of the free world’ – and we imagine there were a couple of awkward moments discussing Brexit’s effect of the island of Ireland.
10 Downing Street released some standard shots of the PM on the phone to mark the occasion, though for all we know he could have been ordering a pizza – probably with pineapple, the reprobate!
Huffington Post’s Executive Editor, Paul Waugh, shared a couple, including this.

“Hello, Joe, good to finally-
No, I didn’t mean all those racist-
Yes, the part-Kenyan thing was a bit-
Well, if you think about it, we all break the law at some-
There’s really no need for that lang-
Yeah, I will fuck off, but not because you told me to.” pic.twitter.com/4nef2fCTWz

What I don't have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have failed to acquire over a very long career. A lack of skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my one of my many children go now, that'll be the end of it. https://t.co/45EhVCDtM4
