Welcome to the bullshit: Johnson's hair always raises a smile. (Check bottom for credit)

With all that athletics bollocks about to kick off in London, Cassetteboy has issued his own welcome to the Great Wen speech via the gob of posh hair-freak mayor Boris Johnson.

Actually, Cassetteboy consists of two chaps called Mark Bolton and Steve Warlin but I'm far too pressed for time to rewrite the above sentence so I'm leaving it as it is.

It's also quicker and easier just to keep referring to them as if they're one bloke.

So that's what I'm going to do.

And if you have a problem with that, I'll give you 20p and you can call someone who gives a shit.

Anyway, the video, which cut-and-paste supremo Cassetteboy1 describes as "fluff-headed loon Boris Johnson [welcoming] the world to the [censored due to ridiculously draconian copyright issues you can read about here]", is not only well funny but disturbingly accurate.

Posted up on YouTube, this fantastic piece of guerrilla video art or something has so far received close to 250,000 hits, not even a third of what we get on a typical Sunday but still quite impressive nonetheless.

I could go on about a) the video b) Cassetteboy c) that overhyped crap in London and d) Boris Johnson but as I really need the khazi right now I'll just embed the video form Cassetteboy's YouTube channel and let you watch it yourself instead.

Right, gotta go.

The first two inches are cold already.
