LOL-BLAIR competition – updated

LOLcat, if you don’t know, has become a popular internet phenomena where pictures of cats are given speech bubbles with funny messages in pidgin English. Sometimes, pictures of cats are super-imposed on random pictures too. See: Icanhascheezburger

I have a new suggestion. LOL-blair. In this game we find pictures of Tony Blair from his latest new and exciting plan to change the world, write funny captions, and then speculate on what he’s going on move on to next.

Here’s the latest in this saga. First he wanted to bring peace to the Middle East. We’re all aware what a great success that has been. Then he wanted to become president of the European Union, until Angela Merkel shot down that plan.

Update, via OurKingdom, here are other things Blair has been up to recently:
- signing a million dollar contract at JP Morgan;
- accepting a role as a Rwandan advisor,
- accepting a position on the Africa Progress Panel;
- accepting an advisory position at Swiss insurer Zurich,
- taking up an interfaith teaching position at Yale (linked to the upcoming Tony Blair Faith Foundation).

Then he was seen cavorting with the ethnics, possibly to bring racial harmony to Britain.

Now, it looks like he is going to sort out our global warming problem. This surely is evidence that we are all doomed and the environment is going to degrade faster than relations between Israel and Hamas.

Once again – best caption, preferably in pidgin English – wins a prize. This time I’ll actually mail you a book.

    Blair may be a hypocrite and consummate liar but he has a winning manner that appeasl to the native Brits. And he is good at awakening that old British patriot and imperialist spirit.

    In 1996) as Leader of the Opposition he said:
    Consider a thousand years of British history and what it tells us. The first parliament in the world. The industrial revolution ahead of its time. An empire, the biggest the world has known.

    And in 2000, PM Blair boasted at the Labour Party Conference:

    A country with our history and heritage, that today boasts 6 of 10 top businesses in Europe, with London the top business city in Europe, that is a world leader in technology and communication, that under us has overtaken France and Italy to become the 4th largest economy in the world, that has the language, more brilliant artists, actors and directors than any comparable country in the world, some of the best scientists and inventors, the best armed forces, the best teachers, doctors and nurses, the best people any nation could wish for.

    FILM NOIR
    (Seven Smiles of Tony Blair)

    Fresh from nowhere he entered our lives
    charismatic it seemed – with that smile.
    In some mystical way his dentition revealed
    the root of his being with nothing concealed
    and he swore that no truth he’d defile.

    The next smile seemed darker – or was it his friends?
    Not anything you could define.
    As he smiled from high places at home and abroad
    delivering speeches that all could applaud
    we still felt that the future was fine.

    The third caught the eye – there was something amiss;
    it was not that the smile was strained.
    But a front lower tooth, set back from the rest
    standing back from that smile, subverting its zest
    appeared to be slightly stained.

    The fourth smile with Azna and Bush in a row
    was a clench in Madrid’s dark despair.
    He was doing his best to be one of the group
    but knew that back home he was well in the soup
    while that brown tooth looked out – like his stare.

    Smile five was a great leader’s smile – no less;
    three time winner, he just could not lose!
    But the tooth – ever darker – foretold his demise
    as stress dulled his hair and the light left his eyes
    and dark deeds put his neck in a noose.

    Smile six looks the confident smile of a man
    who leaves with the job truly done;
    in the knowledge that he is a Straight Kind of Guy;
    rictus grin painted on, Heaven’s truth to deny;
    save one tooth – black as night – just the one.

    When at last he is called to the judgement halls
    he will grin that damned grin unaware
    that his life was not smiley and whiter than white
    it was run from the rear by a black hearted sprite;
    that one tooth saying: “I’m Tony Blair.”
