BREXIT BULLDOG

News Item:  Jeremy Corbyn, the Labor leader in Parliament, calls on Tory MPs in
favor of 'remain' to support him and prevent PM Boris Johnson's catastrophic no-deal
Brexit.

Is no-deal better than a bad deal Brexit?

No-deal is a bad-deal Brexit.

That's why I asked for 'remain' Tory MPs' support.

And you didn't get it ...

No, I didn't get it.  But a British bulldog is a real bulldog ... never gives in, never gives
up.

Unless outwitted by a French poodle or a German schnauzer ...

No, they are staying out of it.  The problem is going to be the Irish wolfhound when
the open borders between north and south are closed after a no-deal Brexit.

Ireland is the $64 question, eh?

Actually that's Boris.  I attribute it to eating too many cheeseburgers ...

CHEESEBURGERS?

Yes, cheeseburgers.  It's a habit he picked up from his friend across the Atlantic ...

Oh my God!  I see what you mean.

The stringy cheese addles the brain, clogging up quick communication between
neurons ...

Sluggish neurons, eh?

Yes, sluggish neurons.  Britain is in trouble ... lots of trouble -- slug heads to the left
of 'em, slug heads to the right of 'em, onward they thundered ... alas, no more
thundering, not even with slug heads.  Britannia can no longer rule the waves ...

Or waive the rules, as it once could ...
