Goodbye Tony Blair

I'm rubbish at political comedy, so I'll leave it up to Tim Ireland to properly say Goodbye, Tony Blair. (via)

This is an insult to Bugsy Malone and Little Enis Burnett in particular. Go figure.

What's proper about this?

Whatever happened to Paul Williams, anyway?

It's loading slowly for me, but somehow, I don't think it's going to beat Russell T. Davies' sly roast on last night's episode of 'Doctor Who'. Season 3 - Episode 12, 'The Sound of Drums' wherein the Doctor's arch-nemesis gets himself elected PM and promptly opens up a dimensional gateway that allows his minions to invade Earth with the intention of killing 10% of the current population.

The Master was portrayed by John Simm of 'Life On Mars' fame, and suprisingly he was easily able to put on the spit-and-polish that Mr. Blair seemed to do so well. At least with Harold Saxon the Brits didn't have to wait 2-3 years to be betrayed - it was barely the next day before The Master allowed the planet to be invaded.

Jibjab dreams about a world in which it thought of anything for itself, Dave Faris. Instead it seems happy enough slapping ads on tenth-rate B3ta ripoffs with funny-ectomies.

Also, quite the grammatical car crash you've got there.

He seems to be doing ok. Still super short & stuff.

But, miss l, he doesn't have that near-albino look., nor the hair that he had once upon a time. But at least he a very decent Van-Dyke.

I celebrate the man's entire catalog(ue).

(Ahem.... that stray "." was for the near-albino look).

As for the later typo, there is no excuse. Insert "has" between "he" and "a" in crappily-constructed sentence number two.

He got even dorkier than he used to be!

I have NO IDEA why the link isn't working. Sorry. (Bows head deeply in embarrassment.)

Well, who's dorky now? Fear not, watersprite. Your link is the same one Miss Lynnster posted earlier.

I know where he is.

He's a sinner, candy coated
For all his friends he always seems to be alone
But they love him....

Mostly meh, although the Scooby Doo homage almost made me chuckle.

How weird. I was at school with Tim, a long time ago in a country far far away from where he is now.

I think he puts himself down too much. That was pretty damn good.

Magnificent. (you bloody nay-sayers!)

I'm not keen on TB's last act as PM being presiding over half of the UK actually being flushed down the toilet, but I suppose it's fairly appropriate.
Now Gordon Brown has to clean up the mess, or at least convince us all that he's a very different beast and either
a) the mess never really existed, pshaw!
b) the mess-makers have now been ushered through the door and everything will now be rosy.
