These 21 memes about the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme are as wild as the idea itself
Don’t call me a hero, just doing my bit
Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer, had previously carried the demeanour of an Apprentice semi-finalist until his time to shine arrived on Super Saturday. Sunak is the face of the new government scheme “eat out to help out” which entails that every Brit will be given vouchers to spend in restaurants. The scheme offers customers a discount worth up to £10 per head when they eat out, from Monday to Wednesday in August.
Boring Chancellor of the Exec no more, Sunak is the face of a campaign that is making bold feminist moves, he has become the man to thank when your partner starts giving out world-changing orgasms in the name of doing their bit for the country.
Twitter is immensely confused at how the Chancellor can say the slogan of his scheme without smirking, and pleads to know exactly who came up with the “eat out to help out” hashtag. From the unimpressive creativity of the Treasury comms team, to finally getting a discount at Sexy Fish: Here are the best memes about the “eat out to help out” scheme.
