Whether you're sobbing, laughing, rolling around drunk in disbelief, the General Election Absolutely No One Saw Coming is over and, well, we're not quite sure what to do with ourselves.

Except, I guess, look back at what a weird and wonderful time we've just collectively experienced together?

With our future still uncertain – except for the fact that Theresa May has most definitely misfired like the true field-of-wheat wanderer – here are some the greatest, funniest and simply oddest things that happened over the last 24 hours.

1. Piers Morgan Actually Apologised To Jeremy Corbyn

The Good Morning Britain presenter was (unsurprisingly) extremely confident in his election prediction. Just one hour before the night's exit poll was released he Tweeted:

But, as the night wore on, the overwhelming exit polling indicated that not only had the Conservatives fallen short of a 100-seat majority, they would might lose power all together.

And then this happened:

No, we can't believe our eyes either.

2. Jeremy Corbyn Accidentally High Fives Emily Thornberry's Boob

The Labour leader was celebrating a result in his Islington North constituency with Emily Thornberry last night. Then an attempted high-five goes wrong and, well, it went very, very wrong.

We love you Jezza, but please for the love of God work on your coordination.

3. Nick Clegg Loses His Sheffield Seat To...A Former Student

The former leader has been replaced with Labour candidate Jared O'Hara. The 25-year-old would have been a student in 2010 when Clegg pledged to abolish tuition fees in their manifesto, only to do a total U-Turn and raise them along with the Conservative Party.

Many were calling it 'Cleggsit':

8. Amber Rudd Becomes A Meme

The Home Secretary hasn't had the best of elections. Rudd did eventually win by the narrowest of margins of 346 votes, after two recounts, but she looked pretty shaken .

When Rudd arrived at count she was asked by a BBC interviewer: 'How do you think it is going?'

She responded: "John I'm not going to engage much until we are a little clearer where it is at the moment so I'm just quietly waiting and making sure we keep an eye on everybody and everything in the normal way."

Requests for repeated recounts got the Internet loling. And a new meme was born.

And if all that doesn't win you over? Here's Jezza's head photoshopped onto a model's body:
