Float like a waterlogged hippopotamus, sting like a flatulent grandmother

And for those of you who may have missed it, here is a wonderful picture of John Prescott, Deputy Prime Minister of 'the birthplace of democracy', underneath a pile of people.

What surprised me was quite how violently people have reacted to what was, in essence, a little slap. We all knew John was a bit of a bruiser, you don't make your way through the trades unions in the '70s and '80s without being a little bit handy. Personally, I think we should abandon the electoral process and decide the whole thing by having tha bastards wrestle naked, with only electric eels for weapons. Go on, you know it makes sense.
