Mrs Brown's Boys and five other shit things which will survive the End of Days

IT’S no great leap of imagination to picture us all going to hell in a handcart soon. Which linchpins of modern society will still be going strong after the apocalypse?

Quorn chicken-style nuggets

Capable of surviving at the back of your fridge for decades, this seemingly immortal foodstuff could end up as a currency more valuable than gold, or a handy building material for survivors banding together in the smoking ruins of 21st century Earth.

Nigel Farage

Despite promising to go away on a regular basis, Nigel Farage always pops back up with a new thing to have a stupid opinion on. No doubt he’ll still be around after Armageddon, clutching a warm pint of radioactive bitter and blaming it all on foreigners.

WHSmith

Whilst every other shop on the high street falls victim to the internet and general economic catastrophe, WHSmith will somehow keep going. It’s where cockroaches will be purchasing ring binders and file pockets after civilisation has fallen.

Mrs Brown’s Boys

As a lack of humour is no barrier to its perpetual scheduling and commissioning, so the lack of an audience post-apocalypse will be no barrier to further series of the popular prime time ratings smash being made, knowing our f**king luck.

Twitter

After the end of the world Twitter will somehow still be running. You’ll still be subjected to misogynistic hate-tweets, tedious celebrity spats and unfunny memes, just to make your existence that bit worse as you attempt to make a meal out of a handful of scorched grass and a dead squirrel.
