Guess who's back? Back again. Buzdar is back — oh wait, he isn't.

But PTI supporters seem to think it's a done deal after the Supreme Court's ruling on Article 63-A, and they have begun commemorating the potential parliamentary change that would remove current Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz and reinstate Usman Buzdar.

The top court on Tuesday in its decision on a presidential reference seeking interpretation of Article 63-A of the Constitution which is related to the status of defecting lawmakers, said the votes of defecting lawmakers will not be counted.

PTI Secretary General Asad Umar congratulated the nation and said the legitimacy of the Punjab government had ended whilst PTI Vice President Fawad Chaudhry, addressing a press conference in Lahore, said the verdict had made the governments of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza lose their majority.

It's important to point out that the implications of the court order have yet to become clear — you can read more about what it could mean for the position of the Pubjab CM here.

In a politically charged climate, however, technicalities tend to take a backseat, especially when memes could be made. And the memes that have popped up as a result of the court order are, as the kids say, fire.

Buzdar's entry has already been envisioned.

For PTI stans, he left the playing field only to return as a coach and they borrowed a quote from Maryam Nawaz to really rub it in.

A photo with a badass pose is a must in case the tables turn.

A warm welcome awaits their "hero."

We're sure his supporters can hear this in his voice.

Some glory is shortlived.

Peer baba's business is about to boom.

Same question, Daya.
