If, like us, you’ve been awake since Tuesday evening – hooked to US news channels, a red and blue map burned into your retinas, Googling weird American words like ‘Tabulator’ and ‘Newt Gingrich’ as you slowly lose your grip on reality – then you no doubt welcome the news that our friends across the pond have landed on a result. CNN has called it. Democrat nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden has crossed the 270 mark needed to beat Trump in the race. He’s done it (right?). It’s over (barring weeks of hostile litigation). Everything’s okay (we think?). It’s probably about time that you finally went to sleep.
But that doesn’t mean that you’re going to, does it? Oh no. How could you when there are so many eviscerating Trump memes flying around on social media. While most British red tops will likely opt for a simple ‘You’re Fired’, Twitter and Instagram have been getting far more creative with their celebratory posts. These are the best we’ve seen so far.
Obviously we've been thinking about the whole Four Seasons Total Landscaping palaver a lot over the last few days. It's just too perfect.
I could write jokes for 800 years and I'd never think of something funnier than Trump booking the Four Seasons for his big presser, and it turning out to be the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot between a dildo store and a crematorium. pic.twitter.com/P45HV1daD9

A lot of people have wanted to find a way to witness the madness for themselves. For one thing, the next month of Zoom meetings is sorted as regards mild snickering.

Others have gone even further. Over on VRChat, an MMO game which mixes sandbox world-building with general chit-chat and titting about, a group of furries met up in a painstakingly reconstructed digital version of that famous back yard.
Ha ha ha OMG! The grand debut of Four Seasons Total Landscaping was AMAZING! Thank you to everyone who showed up! pic.twitter.com/2c5KQKQwgC

Others have tried to imagine what the actual process of getting that booking was like for the poor person who had to make the whole thing happen with about an hour's notice.
The real hero today is whoever answered the phone at Four Seasons Landscaping and offered no clarification whatsoever until it was too late, I salute you, my fellow patriot.

Then again, perhaps it's so funny because it touches on some fundamental truth in many of our lives.
Four Seasons in the streets, Four Seasons Total Landscaping in the sheets

And there was a chance for the return of one of the choicest memes of the last four years. Better get those ear defenders back on, kid.

Note: Poochy died on the way back to his home planet. Hopefully not a portent of the next six months to come.
And, as we discovered in our other memes piece from the days before Trump was comprehensively defeated – remember them! – there was a thriving market for memes bouncing off Kevin Keegan's famous meltdown directed at Sir Alex Ferguson during the title run-in of 1996. This week has given it a fitting coda.
Davina got stuck in early doors.
As did Philadelphia.
Twitter, of course, was full of compassion for Trump voters.

There are a lot of big questions around the election.

A lot of easy favs to be gained, too.

And a lot of people are honing in on Trump's refusal to concede.
