While many voters and observers in the United States and around the world have been left reeling after Donald Trump's surprising victory in the Presidential election others have found refuge in humour.
A host of hilarious memes have been surfacing on Twitter, imagining what outgoing President Barack Obama and his Veep Joe Biden have been plotting to prank Trump when he finally makes it to the White House.
If the Twitterati are anything to go by, the duo are like a pair of giddy schoolboys dreaming up a whole host of escapades to confound and embarrass the new President and his Vice President Mike Pence.
Though based on these examples it does seem as if Biden is the ringleader.....
