Gordon Brown, Prime Mentalist of the United Kingdom (pictured left looking statesmanlike), despite being the most utterly incompetent holder of his office in history, has managed to be named Statesman of the Year by these people. Obviously the presence of Bono will be setting the alarm bells ringing for anyone reading this, but to highlight the stiff competition Gordo faced, I thought I would share the other members of the shortlist:
Gonzo the Great
A small Edam cheese
A Death Watch Beetle.
My understanding is that the early voting favoured the Edam Cheese, but unfortunately due to a misunderstanding about the lunch arrangements Henry Kissinger ate it. Someone then trod on the death watch beetle, and Gonzo the Great was discovered in flagrante with a chicken in the stationery cupboard.
I am sure all patriotic British people will join with me in congratulating the Prime
Numbnuts Minister on this singular honour, which will no doubt be of great comfort to him in his enforced retirement at a remote secure hospital in the Highlands.
