Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, was stuck dangling in mid-air while riding a zip wire as part of the London 2012 Olympic celebrations in Victoria Park.
He was supposed to slide down gracefully, instead, he ground steadily to a halt on the wire about 65ft (20m) from the end as the wire sagged, and was left dangling inelegantly in front of a watching crowd for no less than five minutes!
Now Boris Johnson is known, loved and mocked for his antics, but this has been his best so far. Some are going as far as saying this has been the best Olympic moment so far!
That’s not all. The memes that have erupted and mushroomed overnight are almost record breaking! And hilarious to boot! Here are our favorites:
The most natural place to hang from it seems:
Some people believe, the dangling act was worthy of the opening ceremony no less!
Hanging from great heights. Indeed Boris is not new to the thrills of it!
Now, that is just too politically damaging for a man’s ego!
Kitty bored of the ball dangling at the end of the yarn? No more.
We can’t really blame him, now, can we?
Boris is funny, colorful and not prone to Mr. Bean-like moments, but this is the limit!
Another Olympic sensation; a memory from the games, spectators won’t soon forget.
It seems, he’s got all the time in the world to hang around!
The much needed diversion:
Hanging till the very end.
Bolt apparently had a bolt of inspirations.
A blooper like this would land many a politician in hot waters, but not goofy Boris. People love him for his antics.
