Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, found himself stuck on a zipwire today, suspended above Victoria Park, after grinding to a halt in an Olympic publicity stunt that went disastrously wrong / incredibly well (delete as appropriate, depending on political affiliation).
As is often the case with Boris, instant hilarity ensued. After various cries from the Mayor for 'a rope' and 'a ladder', he was towed to the end of the zipwire line and put out of his misery.
And it was only a matter of minutes before the images started appearing on social networking sites. Here's our tribute to Boris on a wire.
