Brian Pigeon Election Special
This happened last week.
The whole of London was going mental over the election, so we thought we’d join in. Seeing as the state of things seemed to be pretty much all over the place, why not give it a shot? A pigeon for Prime Minister. How about it? No-one would notice.
There are several reasons why, in some ways, we might be more qualified.
Here are five of them:
- We are very organised and turn up on time if we have to.
- We know what we think and stick to it, especially when it comes to food.
- We pride ourselves in our appearance, well most of us anyway.
- We look great on TV.
- We are always aware of a microphone.
Loads of reasons, really, so we thought we’d give it a go. Strike while the iron’s hot and everyone is confused.
Eddy, Mike, Ron and a couple of others got on the ledge outside We Will Rock You.
Talk about a statement backdrop:
All a bit of a let down in the end though. No-one was listening, then again they weren’t really saying anything of interest, until they started singing We Will Rock You that is.
Mike, left, took the lead. Even managed to source a hair piece.
I told them they should go on Britain’s Got Talent and that they were better than the performing dog, or any of the performing dogs come to that.
Crowds started to gather on the roof of a nearby key cutter:
However, great moment though it was, the whole performance kind of missed the delivery of a clear electoral message.
Or did it?
‘We will rock you’ got me thinking. I reckon the message is brilliantly clear. Clearer than any I’ve heard so far and, more to the point, we’ve got a song.
I wonder if Clegg might have got more votes with a song? Or a dance routine? Or a coin based magic trick, perhaps?
Anyway, it’ll be ages before they all get their shit together, so there’s still time. Best get working on a manifesto.
In the meantime, everyone out there get singing We Will Rock You at every given opportunity. In shops, in the streets, in meetings. Get the word out. Additional ‘We will’ at the beginning is optional.
