The UK invited a cartoon blimp to visit on Thursday 12 July. The problem is that some unruly protestors got wind of this and constructed a ridiculous orange airbag to spoil the day. This meant that…
…have I got that the right way around?
Which one’s the airbag and which one’s the blimp?
Oh, the humanity
Trump was stretching his legs at the American Embassy when he saw the blimp overhead.
“Hey, look at that big, dumb baby!” he said. “Is that guy trying to steal my big day? Look at him! SHOWBOAT! I see you! YOU WON’T STEAL MY BIG DAY, BABY!”
Trump began barking at the baby blimp – something he likes to do whenever he accidentally catches sight of himself in the mirror. When this failed to ground the balloon, the strong and stable genius had an idea.
If he’s flying, I’m flying too! How do I get to the roof?
The embassy staff tried to convince him this wasn’t a good idea. They didn’t try too hard, though, as they’d met the president before.
Give ‘em enough rope
Thankfully, Trump had tied a rope around his middle – wrongly thinking this was what made the helium doppelgänger float. This meant when he jumped off the roof, the rope pulled him back – causing him to crash through a window below.
The room he ended up in had a TV on that was showing a live feed of the president leaping off the embassy. When he saw himself, the upside down Trump began barking at the TV.
Still, though – there’s an outside chance he’ll give us a trade deal. You know – if he doesn’t pop in the meanwhile.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
