These hilarious memes are taking a jab at Malta’s heatwave & hitting us right in the feels
They’re pretty accurate, too!

Malta has been struck by some serious heatwaves in recent weeks, and honestly at this rate, we wouldn’t be surprised if another came along next week! But these locals are staying positive and chose to take the mickey out of the island's unforgiving temperatures.

1. The scorching sun

This meme was seen making the rounds on social media showing the distance between Earth and the Sun, and Malta right next to the ball of energy. And it pretty much felt that way down here!

2. This hilarious name

This meme surfaced in a Facebook group that showed a profile screenshot of someone named Mel Ting. And obviously some genius created a meme that read “It’s so hot I’m Mel Ting.” 10 points for this one!

3. Our knight in shining armour!

We’ve ALL become BFFs with our air conditioner and have pledged to never take the machine for granted ever again.

4. Boiled eggs, anyone?

We’ve got to keep those chickens (and any other animal) fresh in this sweltering heat! But we highly doubt crushed ice is going to cut it, so we might have to settle for hard-boiled eggs.

5. The heat only means one thing…

Mosquitoes! The heat brings along all types of insects, but the worst are those pesky, buzzing mosquitoes. You won’t be getting any sleep if that window is left open, mate!

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
