Terry Gilliam Apologises for Escape of Nigel Farage

Animator and member of Monty Python Terry Gilliam today apologized for the escape of Nigel Farage.


“I was animating a satire about ridiculous political beliefs, and one day I left the studio without gluing him down.” explained an abashed Gilliam. “The next morning he was gone. I just didn’t think such a blatant parody of human behavior could do much damage.”


Farage now has a successful career of leading UKIP and standing at precisely 90 degrees to every camera at all times. The comic basis for his existence continually shines through with ridiculous claims, satirically bad policies, and an inability to resist turning every leadership contest into a farce.


Farage’s brother Conrad Pooh distanced himself from the political movement, explaining that he didn’t want the army of solid chunks of brainless skull-matter that danced to his tune sullied by association.

Ed Milliband made a few mistakes. First: emulating Moses. Second: everything he wrote. But I’m a writer, so I’m happy to help.

Bonus irony: they want to plant it in the Downing Street’s garden to  show that Labour’s ideals are “set in stone”, but limestone is horribly vulnerable to acid rain and will be eroded by environmental changes.
