Well, we had a good run avoiding World War Three while it lasted.
In one of her first official acts as new Prime Minister yesterday, Theresa May decided to appoint Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary. Britain's diplomat to the world. A position of utmost importance in maintaining peace in the western world and beyond.
The same man who once did this to a small Japanese child....
...And this to a German footballer in a charity match.
As though he were some Churchillian clone forged in a laboratory with union jack bunting for brains, straw for hair, you almost have to commend this cartoonish figure for rising from his expensive private education to become Mayor of London and now foreign secretary. A role which means he'll be tasked with hosting political leaders the world over, who he may or may not have offended in the past.
But should we worry? According to the Internet, yes, yes we should.
He has previous all right
We may have another blond Bond
Well consider us startled
Boris's strategy was soon leaked
The news tickled US state department spokesman Mark Toner

Even CHER felt it pertinent to weigh in on the topic

Just when Britain was starting to become a laughing stock around the world,
Boris Johnson is appointed foreign secretary.
Wait a minute...
Boris Johnson was born in the US which means technically he could be Trump's VP. Nothing would surprise me at this point.— Scary Whitta 🎃 (@garywhitta) July 14, 2016
Was the appointment dumb luck?
His tough views on immigration were put into perspective
Boris Johnson's great-grandfather was a wealthy newspaper editor who became Ottoman Interior Minister, so he's basically a Sudanese refugee— The Discourse Lover (@Trillburne) July 14, 2016
