Theresa May posed with Article 50, and everyone is making the same joke
Note to all politicians: Never pose whilst writing anything. Ever.
Donald Trump posed after signing an executive order, and now there's over thirty twitter accounts dedicated to taking the piss precisely out of that moment.

But now Theresa May has had her own Trump Draws moment, after she was forced to pose for cameras whilst signing Article 50.

Whilst people have been beautifully creative, as ever, the main joke that everyone has gone for this time is that she's writing to Eminem.
