There Was A Supermoon Last Night And Most Of Britain Was Distinctly Underwhelmed
We've been hearing about the so-called 'supermoon' for what feels like forever. People went all out, buying deckchairs and throwing 'supermoon parties' only to be more disappointed than a little kid opening a Quality Street tin and finding it full to the brim with sewing supplies.
In typical British fashion, the weather ruined everything. It was too damn cloudy.
Being British, we all took to social media in floods to complain. Because, Godammit, if we're good at one thing it's bloody complaining. If you don't agree, please complain about my writing in the comments.
Sorry but where is it? Oh wait, it's behind the thick cloud that constantly covers England :ok_hand::joy: #supermoon
