"Quote of the Day"

Overheard in the restaurant:

"The Russians have blasted a clown into space today - why can't we do the same with Gordon Brown?"

Are you saying we should murder the Prime Minister?

Would you wield the knife yourself?

Of course not, don't be so daft.

The clown who the person I quoted was referring to had paid the Russians a huge sum of money to take him on a trip into space and return him safely to earth a few weeks later.

So there was no suggestion of murdering anyone. The joke was firstly to infer that the PM is a clown, and secondly that the speaker would welcome the idea of sending him as far away as possible.
