We’re sure we’ll miss that guy.

But where will they go?

Many say they will move to Canada if Romney prevails on Election Day next month:

Hosers.

Some are considering England:

Italy’s looking pretty good to them, too:

It’s worth noting that those who escape to Italy will avoid the second coming of Mussolini:

Australia also holds a lot of promise:

Good point. Romney wants to send people back to the cotton fields, after all.

And how about New Zealand (where, incidentally, the prime minister is a member of the conservative National Party)?

Charming.

Many see Mexico as a safe haven away from all the inevitable right-wing oppression that will ensue if Romney wins:

A few Twitterers believe that these kinds of threats are empty ones:

But these people aren’t drama queens; they’re dead-set on getting the heck outta Dodge — and off of Earth:

They must really want to leave; even Ernie, who’s pals with Romney victim Big Bird, admits he’d never want to live on the moon.

We hear Mars is lovely this time of year, too.
