I haven't treated you to one of T.K.'s gems lately, so here's one I got from him this morning. You know what they say - there's many a true word spoken in jest!Julia Gillard, the Prime Minister of Australia, and David Cameron, her British counterpart, are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future.
They both decide to test it by asking a question each.
Julia goes first. "What will Australia be like in 100 years time?"
The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action and gives her a printout.
She reads it out. "The country is in good hands under the new Prime Minister, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries."
David thinks "It's not bad, this time machine, I'll have a bit of that." So he asks, "What will Great Britain be like in 100 years time?"
The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action, and he gets a printout.
But he's just staring at it.
"Come on David," says Julia, "what does it say?"
David replies, "I'm buggered if I know. It's all in Arabic."
