If all else fails, Brexit supporters may consider settling for an Irish goodbye for the United Kingdom, sources tell the Velvet Hamster.

Though the first option would be to vote for a clean break, supporters have been preparing for a “plan B” for weeks. The plan centers around telling the rest of the European Union and Brexit dissenters that the UK “just has to use the restroom real quick,” at which time the UK will sneak out the back door as the rest of the EU is engrossed in conversation. Brexit supporters are also considering the excuse “I gotta take this phone call” and “Be right back. I’m going to grab another drink.”

The Velvet Hamster will update this story as it developments.
