Crisis

Oh my goodness, Prime Minister Tony Blair has resigned! This is so unexpected and the nation is on its knees! Fortunately a task force has been assembled to run the country during this transitional phase:

Rabbi Lionel Blue


Former England wicketkeeper Jack Russell


and Bagpuss (pictured discussing transport policy with Professor Yaffle, who is consulting in an advisory role)


I would write more but unfortunately there's now a curfew, and rationing.

Careful! You may mislead some of your more trusting readers for goodniss' sakes.

Resigned? Leaders are allowed to resign now? Whatever happened to lopping off heads? This sets a poor example for the rest of the Commonwealth, if you ask me.

What is the Queen's role in all this? Shouldn't she now assume control, and return Britain to a time when everyone went to church picnics and had impeccable table manners?

God dammit that Bagpuss picture cracks me up every time, and I don't even know where he comes from.

Bagpuss, protecting us from the weapons of mass destruction rumored to be in the hands of the clangers.

It could be worse, you could have George W. Bush in charge.

Wait, what if Blair is resigning now to get an early start on campaigning in the USA, and Bush is going to run in Britain? Egads, they're just pulling a switch!!

The real news here, of course, is that Blair's resignation has allowed John A. to schedule a trip to San Diego's Comicon. The curfew must be highly selective.

Speechless Fanboy Mode :ON: !
