Tony Blair's got no bits!

by Suw on October 1, 2004

Just watching the lunchtime news on the BBC who are reporting Tony Blair's heart op today. The report used a graphic explaining how the surgeons are going to stuff a pipecleaner in his thigh which they will then guide carefully up to his heart in order to then remove the small defect that's causing the trouble. Sadly for Tony, it appears from this graphic that he's got no genitals. Don't know when our PM suffered this indignity, but he must be quite distraught about it. Not sure how Cherie feels. Relieved, maybe.
What I don't understand is why the BBC need to pretend that men don't have genitals. They could have put pants on the graphic if they were feeling a bit prudish, but giving him that Ken-esque lump is just way too grotesque.
BREAKING NEWS: Surgeons have had to call in the country's top physicists to advise them on how deal with the black hole discovered where Tony's heart should be.

I love the way the newspapers have reported this with headlines like “Blair's Heart Surgery Shock!” when, in fact, it is a routine procedure performed under local anaesthetic and isn't even surgery. He'll be right as rain in a few days but the papers are making it out to be a major operation.

Yeah, but remember the fuss made over Charles Kennedy when he had a cold during last year's Liberal Party conference – “the man is clearly not fit enough for the rigours of political leadership!”

He obviously had SARS or something. I suppose if Michael Howard had an ingrowing toenail there would be reports that his leg needs to be amputated.
