Not Amused

Difficult to see which suggestion is more ludicrous:

Danger Mouse Rides Again

Hopefully Greece will get Ntokozo Qwabe on retainer stat as presumably he won’t get them anything until they a) stop talking to the white media! and b) give him all of Africa (which probably includes Greece now by his peculiar estimations) back.

Whilst I appreciate the effort to link someone you don’t like to an utterly unrelated news story, you forgot to mention Charlotte Proudman. I’m also confused by that last exclamation mark. 4/10.


Danger mouse rides again

I can’t see how it’s ‘unrelated’. Clearly Qwabe has lost his marbles just like Greece.

That lost marbles pun is good, though, I’ll doff my cap there.
