Attempts At Humor: Hung Parliament Edition

An iron cage over the Thames at Tilbury Point displayed the hung parliament as a warning to other parliaments.

Parliament was hung like John Holmes.

The hung parliament was like Charlie Bronson in The Great Escape; it was digging tunnels.

Madonna, hearing parliament was hung, rushed back to London for some private time with its members.

The news interviewed a Greek man who is concerned about the proposed austerity measures, but he wouldn't push back if a hung parliament was behind him.

Investors are afraid of the length of the hung parliament.

That's all I got right now.

UPDATE: Did you see the hung parliament? Sure did, and I used to think Ben was Big.

BTW, this post is all Arethusa's fault.

Guardian Headline:

Parliament Hung. Pound Off.

You did want things to blog about...

The whole notion of a "hung Parliament" is wrong.

What we're looking for is a "hanged Parliament."

(After all, grammar matters.)

FLG said...

That's certainly true, but hung is funnier because of the euphemism aspect.

Ironically, a hung parliament is also an impotent parliament.

Ironically, a hung parliament is also an impotent parliament.

By some accounts, hanging would remedy that -- however briefly.
