Superheros for our Time; Friday Fun
News from Seattle is quite amusing today. In the US and UK it appears that many people are finally losing any last grip on reality and in an internal existential debate for self-worth have deemed it sensible to get dressed up as Super Hero's and become sort of comedy Vigilantes.
Exhibit A here is self-styld Pheonix Jones.
Of course, in these troubling time the World does indeed need some Superhero's to resuce us from the wrecklessness of humanity....so do we have any views as to good potential superhero names for our current crop of sadly very human global leaders?
Here are some ideas to start with:
Borish Johnson as the Purple Stallion (not sure how Berlusconi will take this, but he is Boris's nemesis or possibly Batmand to Boris's Robin...)
Oliver Letwin - The Paper Weight
Angela Merkel - Der dunkle Engel of Money
Nicholas Sarkozy - Le défenseur des bureaucrates
Ed Miliband - The Red Mumble
Anyway, I am sure you can all do much better....the prize is of course a highly prized invisibility cloak.
