Our dear England naively thought that reducing the intensity of the piss-yellow hair dye he uses would somehow make it look less godawful and less like, well, piss.
He was wrong.
Now I don’t know what those people were paying him when they told him to make that pose, but apparently the recession has finally broken him and he’ll do anything for a tuppence.
With one strangely short, stiff, lifeless arm he pumps the air and with the strangely dislocated other he holds out the Union Flag, because that’s how we Brits like to show how excited we are.
Clearly he must have been in a hurry as he barely had time to iron any of his clothes or grab a handful of tissues to stuff into his coat pocket. He isn’t fooling anyone at this stage.
Oh Lord is that a skull I see in his tie? Rather fitting - the pose and all other above components alone can only spell the beginning of the end for any shred of dignity this poor soul has.
And speaking of souls, one can’t help noticing the disturbing lack of it in our England’s eyes.
Well folks, he finally did it. He summoned the devil and this is the consequence. We English really are buggered now.
