Olympic Scandal: Faux BoJo, or No?

Boris Johnson waves the Olympic flag or IS it Boris Johnson???

Another Olympic scandal tops the headlines this morning as it is revealed that, in a substitution reminiscent of the opening ceremony’s switched songstresses and faux fireworks, London Mayor Boris Johnson did not, in fact, attend the closing ceremony at all, but instead was replaced by a sophisticated computer-generated animation.

Bojo gone Olympics, or is it really so?

This shocking swap was insisted upon by the Olympic organizers, who had substantial reservations about Mr. Johnson‘s ability to accept and wave the flag without falling down, offending several of the participating nations, or fatally wounding a spectator in a misguided, yet historically correct, attempt to re-create one of the bloodier Olympic events of the Classical Age. After all, the Mayor’s track record is a very public one indeed.

Bojo in typical mode

The artificial Boris was, in fact, a compromise reached between the organizers and the British delegation. Originally, the Olympic ceremony management had planned to simply replace Mr. Johnson with a more attractive, dramatically-trained, lip-synching version of the same type.

Cary Elwes would do in a pinch. He could pinch me any time!

It is understood that many in the Mayor’s own office have approached the Olympic organizers for permission to continue to use the replicant back home.

  1. awww Rain I’m devastated – until reading your post I was convinced it was a computer animated cyborg with the animal parts made possible by the advances made in cloning techniques. I wanted one.

    I was saving up.

    It was just some bloke in a wig then ?

    :-((

  2. No, Elwes wanted too much money and they said after that trashy flick with Alicia Silverstone he didn’t deserve it, so yes, you saw a computer animated Bojo instead.

  3. And what the hell was his little waving thing all about? Who WAVES to random people in the crowd at such an event on such an occasion? Deeply weird. Is that the real Boris’s trademark or is this an animated add-on?

  4. The real Boris’ trademark is to alternately charm and offend everyone in the crowd. He had to run for mayor of London because he’s offended everywhere else!

    If that had been the real Boris he’d have waved in such a way that it would have been…I dunno…a Maori gesture meaning “your mother wears army boots” or something, and then he’d go home and write 700 words about the history of Maori dirty gestures and it would all end with New Zealand threatening to invade.

    laughing out loud to that one.
    Excellent. Tears even.
