Leicester tearing up Champions League “still not the weirdest thing about 2016”

Foxes' rise less bizarre than Trump, Boaty McBoatface, killer clowns and Boris as foreign sec, survey finds.

Leicester City making mincemeat of the Champions League is not even close to being the weirdest thing about 2016, according to a new poll.

Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes steamrollered FC Copenhagen 1-0 to make it a clean sweep of wins from their first three group stage games.

In any other year, this would be quite the strangest set of circumstances imaginable – but not in 2016.

According to the survey, even the 5000/1 title win that got Leicester to the Champions League seems downright mundane compared to such phenomena as Donald Trump.

Other events or things from 2016 to poll as weirder than Leicester were Boaty McBoatface, Boris Johnson as foreign secretary, clowns terrorising the nation and everyone obsessively collecting invisible monsters with their phones.

Leicester ultimately weighed in as the 38th weirdest thing about 2016, one place ahead of Rio’s swimming pools turning green and one below Jeremy Corbyn staging a press conference with UB40.
