The El Arroyo sign on Fifth Street has yet again dispensed some compelling social commentary on the issues of our time.

On Friday morning, the sign in front of the longtime Austin Tex-Mex spot read “It’s not EU, its me #Brexit,” referring to Thursday’s vote by United Kingdom citizens to leave the European Union.

The debate over the Brexit has ignited conversation, mainly in the Twitterverse, about the implications for the Texas succession movement. Texans in favor of breaking it off with the U.S. even co-opted the British independence movement with their own hashtag: #Texit.

We will keep you posted if El Arroyo decides to update us with a trenchant, six-word analysis of the implications of a Texas secession.
