Today afternoon, London Mayor Boris Johnson was left hanging when he got stuck halfway down a zip wire at an event in Victoria Park.

He had to be pulled the rest of the way by teams on the ground.

I had no option but to turn it into a meme. Here are entries by me and others.

London gets cock caught in zip.

Between this and the TfL announcements, I wonder if some of the voters who gave Boris a second term are regretting their decision now.

I assume that first one is the Olympic ceremony, but it looks like Isengard.

Love the Rupert Murdoch puppet master pic,

Yes, all very funny, but remember who Boris has invited as his guest to the swimming on Friday? Rupert Murdoch. Yes, all the people Boris could take as a guest, he chooses a non British sack of shit that owns a media company that the police force Boris is in charge of is investigating.

Murdoch is like crack cocaine for politicians on the make. They just can’t kick this evil drug.

If it was a tin pot banana republic we would just roll our eyes. Boris wants to replace Dave, and he will do anything to achieve it.

Dunno whether it’s my being of A Certain Age, but I briefly visualised Bozza hanging from that inflatable pig that the Floyd used to promote Animals – the one that got loose from its moorings and flew off across London and away.

Crikey readers! Oo-er!!

You call this work, Sunny?
(love it)

Funny thing is, I think will only increase his popularity.

Don’t have the software, but he needs inserting into this clip…

More seriously, where are the Tories PR machine without Andy Coulson – Hunt’s bell ringing, Boris strung up – lots of really positive images of the Tories in control.

It’s a shame that the meme isn’t ‘hanging Boris Johnson’
