Obsolescence: Gordon Brown to expire in a month.



A spokesman for Polaroid said "We had to stop production. Only a few cranks and perverts will miss him. The technology is obsolete and nobody wants Gordon Brown anymore. Eventually all remaining polaroid shots of him will fade and turn blue"

I am sorry Kev, these are genuine polaroids of McBruin. Taken by someone called Rankin, who claims to have enjoyed the photo shoot.

The Christine Keeler pose is particularly fetching, don't you think?

I'm just relieved McBruin kept his clothes on, particularly in the 'Christine Keeler' pose...
Too awful to contemplate.
What on earth is 'le grande pique' thinking about, posing like that?
The 'medics' must have changed his drugs.
God help us all, The Country is being governed by a lunatic.
A supercilious grinning one at that!

I do so hope you do not intend to use the pic at bottom right for a caption comp!

As you can see, rvi, I am a typical woman, and I do not know right from left....

Thank you so much for this. I LOVE polaroid and will stock pile film immediately. Oh hang on, I have no money. Well that's another obsolete piece of technology then. Or should I say junk. Perhaps I'll put it next to the Betamax vid in the loft.

Trubes, I think this may be how he wishes to be remembered...his legacy, if you like, (and I know you don't :-))

Elby tells me, Pip, that someone in Europe has gone into production at vast expense so all is not lost.
