Jajaja: Here are the best (and truest) memes on Spain's heatwave
14:41 CEST+02:00
It’s hot as hell, people have died and parts of Spain are being ravaged by flames as wildfires spread, and it’s going to get worse.

But nothing brings out humour like adversity, so grab a cold drink, sit yourself directly in front of the fan and prepare to have a chortle at the creative ways Spaniards are reacting to the heatwave.

Here’s a few of our favourites:

A classic move

Trying to improve things but actually making them worse

Just wishing for a good night's sleep

Learning to adapt our fashion senses to the heat

Gotta stay prepared

We all wish we were this dog right now

Taking inspiration from Mr Burns

It's the little things that get us through

Proof that accessories can be practical AND fashionable 

 

So hot you could fry an egg on the asphalt and grill toast on the street.

And there was much humour, and jealousy about Galicia, the northwestern corner of Spain that is undoubtedly the best place to be this week.

This too: 

This one jokes that in a Spanish supermarket they have placed time limits on shoppers in the frozen aisle.

Only the cave dwellers will survive!
