In a move more characteristic of a Simpsons parody president than an actual real life one, Donald Trump has gone and threatened North Korea, one of the most unstable nations on the planet. Last week, NK set off some more ballistic missiles which generally makes everyone uneasy (that’s the point). Since that’s a violation against UN resolutions, the United Nations Security Council imposed stricter sanctions against the regime which would decrease North Korea’s ability to export by more than a third (over $1 billion).

Of course, North Korea responded to that with some blanket threats and by targeting the U.S. in particular in their state media. If there’s anything that will bring Donald Trump out to play, it’s a personal attack. So naturally, the president of the United States threatened North Korea. Yeah, scary stuff.

‘North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,’ Trump said, ‘They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. [Kim Jong Un] has been very threatening beyond a normal statement. And as I said, they will be met with fire, fury and, frankly, power–the likes of which this world has never seen before.’

Anyone else getting Independence Day vibes? He knows this isn’t a movie, right?

North Korea, of course, responded with another threat of their own. This time, a lot more specific. Their state media reported on Tuesday that the country is considering carrying out a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam where U.S. strategic bombers are based. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson believes there is no real threat to Guam, but that remains to be seen. People are pretty concerned about what appears to be an impending nuclear war (or at least Cold War II) and they are coping in the best way they know how: Twitter humour.

Here are the best responses to the coming nuclear winter. At least we’ll go out laughing.

Some people went for the direct response. What did we do to deserve this?

Others (our girl Jann) offered possible solutions.

Just to put this into perspective:

Remember: even in total crisis, it’s the little things that count.

Someone had some Trump receipts circa 2013.

They might never be able to afford houses, but at least millennials won’t miss out on everything baby boomers had.

These people definitely have their priorities sorted.

PSA: vices don’t matter when you’re about to be blown up.

Keep in mind: these are funny to joke about but everything will probably maybe be totally fine.
