Howdy United Kingdom,

So, I heard from Australia that you’re having a rough patch with Europe.

Look, I get it, she high maintenance, but I wouldn’t have bailed her out…TWICE…if I didn’t think she wasn’t pretty awesome.

Here’s the deal…you’re together…and need each other.

So don’t do something batshit crazy (and I’m talking from experience) like vote to leave her tomorrow.

I know you can make it work, because deep down you care about each other. I feel it in every fiber of my Stars and Stripes.

Buddy, stay with Europe and I’ll make sure to take care of this god awful Trump Rash by November. Deal?

Later Bro,

United States

P.S. Nice to see England, Wales and Northern Ireland make it into Euro 2016 knockout stage. BTW: we put those cases of single malt that you sent to good use after last night’s thrashing by Argentina (Messi…what were we thinking?)

Tim Cook’s Reply to the FBI’s Demand to Create a Backdoor Into Apple Products.

The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand. This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.
