Queen Elizabeth II just became Britain's longest reigning monarch. The Internet honored her the only way it knows how: stupidly.

Happy birthday, Queen Elizabeth! Sorry the world is ridiculous and probably completely different than what you imagined it would be when you first took the throne 63 years ago (real fact). Unfortunately, in this dystopian present, when someone creates a friendly hashtag to share interesting tidbits about Britain's supreme leader, the monsters of Twitter swarm. #QueenFacts quickly became a way for folks to gently mock Queen Elizabeth, and also make up any ole lie they felt like telling.

Making up facts about our political leaders probably seems normal to Americans currently caught up in news coverage of the 2016 primaries, but she's the QUEEN for goodness sake! Shows what kind of respect these people have for inherited political power.
