A Scottish newspaper has come up with a satirical TV listing of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, scheduled for 20 January in Washington D.C. The listing, as expected, has taken the internet by storm and has amused not only Americans but people across the world.

According to reports, several netizens liked the dark humour the writer used to describe the advent of Trump – "The Twilight Zone", "nightmarish version of 2017" and "gaudy inauguration" and people are busy guessing what revenge Trump would take on Scotland. A Twitter user Scott Wryn joked that Trump would invade Scotland.

Seth MacFarlane, the creator of animated TV series Family Guy, also tweeted the excerpt from his account.

Here is the full TV listing:

"After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories - among the most common is the "What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War" setting - but this huge interactive virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years, sets out to build an ongoing alternative present.

The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible. Today's feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It's a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we're not careful."

Meanwhile, not everyone took this lightly and Trump supporters were quick to react to the article. A user tweeted: "They can't even write a TV schedule without filling it with fake news and propaganda."

As the battle continues on social media, we should take a minute and think if there will seriously be "despair surrounding the ceremony" and what will happen if Trump truly brings back the "The Twilight Zone". After all, Americans only voted Trump to power!
