Everybody's feeling the Brexit wounds.

After the U.K. stunned the world early Friday by voting to exit the European Union, many Britons found themselves in a position that a lot of Americans seem to embrace every four years: wanting to move to Canada.


But unlike their American cousins, Brits clamoring for the True North's shores will find a lot that just makes sense to them:

For example, the Queen is on our currency.

And she doesn't make any big decisions for us, either!

There she is!

This whole Westminster system of government you guys came up with? We're lovin' it.

We have a much, much more affordable London. Let's not compare mayors, though.

We also infuriate Americans by adding a "U" to a bunch of words.

And we say "zed!"

As far as we know, we don't have any politicians with hair like this:

Good luck with this one.

You like chips and gravy? Allow us to introduce a little thing called poutine.

Free health care? Yeah, we have that, too.

BONUS: the wait times can be ridiculous!

We might be letting you down when it comes to football. Sorry.

Speaking of sorry, get used to that.
