Arsenal fans waste UK General Election vote for 'Wenger Out' protest

Hertha Berlin try to recruit Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 'Wenger Out' keeps on going strong and much more in The Sweeper.
Craig Burley doesn't mince his words when it comes to how he feels about Arsene Wenger's two-year extension at Arsenal.

Over the past few months we've seen the "Wenger Out" campaign crop up everywhere, from far flung football stadiums on the other side of the world, to The Pope's Easter address, to Wrestlemania.

What began as an earnest fan movement has since attained meme status, so it's perhaps only natural that several jokers used Thursday's UK General Election to try and score big social media points.

Indeed, photos soon emerged on Twitter of fans who voided their ballot paper by adding a "Wenger Out" box to the list of their local MPs.

But, much like Justin Timberlake who got in trouble for taking a selfie in a polling booth during the U.S. Election, they should have read up on the law before doing so -- though given they didn't actually cast a vote then they will likely avoid any action.

Remember, if you're planning on staging a mock "Wenger Out" protest then make sure you observe in a setting that has no bearing on the rest of society at large. Somewhere like the Emirates Stadium, for example.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
