Former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has rocked the Internet after being pictured running through a yellow meadow – something which many social media users deemed to be a sophisticated trolling of his bête noire Theresa May.
In an interview with Julie Etchingham of ITV’s Tonight program, the UK prime minister spilled that she’d run through fields of wheat when asked about the naughtiest thing she’d ever done.
While it might not be an actual field of wheat, Johnson’s stunt has sent Twitter into meltdown, with some saying that was a “sucker-punch”:
Now I don't like Boris at all but this one right here is a sucker-punch 😂😂😂 https://t.co/KRnea9vD4i— StereoTitan (@StereoTitanUK) 1 октября 2018 г.

Others dismissed the politician as a “clown,” calling him immature:

That clown was Foreign Secretary once eh?— JobCentreSUCKS (@DWPscumbags) 1 октября 2018 г.
Some netizens seemed to be more concerned about the fact that it was not an actual field of wheat:
@IsabelHardman what a legend “ it’s not even a field of wheat, as an amateur botanist I’ve identified a number of meadow plants in the background including hemlock and field bind wheat!” 😂😂😂 @BorisJohnson being as inaccurate as ever! #ConservativePartyConference— Stellaaa (@Stellalala1a) 1 октября 2018 г.

Another user suggested that he could do whatever soothed his soul as long as he didn’t share pics of him doing “the naughtiest thing” he’d ever done:

Theresa May’s interview caused quite a stir last year, with users coming up with the craziest memes to mock her “confession”:
