Some enterprising Britons are even riding the #BrexiStamps meme’s popularity to promote their causes. Academy of Rock founder Peter Cook, for instance, designed a stamp to draw attention to his crowdfunding campaign for “Rage Against the Brexit Machine,” a playlist of Brexit-themed pop songs.

Chris West, author of First Class, A History of Britain in 36 Postage Stamps attributes the popularity of #BrexitStamps to two quintessential British obsessions: political humor and philately. “There’s a great tradition of political cartoons going back to William Hogarth, Thomas Rowlandson and George Cruikshank,” he explains. “And we’re very proud of our stamps. We started the whole business with the Penny Black!”

West thinks the growing gallery of satirical stamps is brilliant. His favorite is a gloomy picture created by Free Say for All, an organization lobbying for second Brexit referendum. “Dark and biting, but that is how the M20 (road to Channel tunnel) will look on March 29, 2019, if the hard-line Brexiteers have their way.”

West also applauds the mordant humor and verbal pun in this early submission.

“All in all, this shows the classic British response to adversity,” says West. “Find something funny in it!”
