Soviet Union on Sea

Gordon Brown and his entourage are visiting a hospital, stopping off every few minutes for a photo-op.


In the mental ward a choir of patients forms up and greets the Prime Minister with the old children's song,


I'm H-A-P-P-Y
I'm H-A-P-P-Y
I know I am
I'm sure I am
I'm H-A-P-P-Y

One of the entourage notices a man who is not singing.

Oi, yew, why aren't yew singing?

Oh, you see, I'm not a loony, I just work here.

Okay, I haven't quite got it right yet, still only a draft.

But here is a rich fund of Soviet jests that timed out in 1989, many more of which could prove to be worth recycling in the next few years.

Waste not, want not.

Hey, I remember that series - I thought that song came from a sitcom?

(I'm afraid I tried but I didn't get the jokes).

Gawd, Brown does look happy in that photo.

Jesus, those jokes. No wonder the Soviet Union died.

I found GB's good eye under the patio yesterday, he was really pleased to have it back.

I found him lurking around my dustbins the other day, bogging at passers-by. I shooed him away, as you do.

The jokes are terrible, I haven't laughed at a single one yet. But then GB only has one joke and that isn't funny either, so they seem fitting.
