From Through the K Hole: America has been drafted in to save the NHS, Pulse, 1 September 2015:
"‘We’re gunna save da mudaf***ing NHS’, declares the United States of America.
famous for world peace, intelligent foreign policy and its fair and
equitable healthcare system has been drafted in to sort out the NHS.
We spoke to Hank Studbuckle, a pumped up physician associate from Minnesota.
‘Y’all got yourselves a fine commie system over there folks. But if my
name ain’t Hank Studbuckle Junior y’all better start prayin’ to baby
Jesus ‘cos for fifty grand a year I’m a comin’ over to work in your fine
NHS…yeeee haaaaa, yes I am.’
He then dropped his trousers,
revealing star spangled underpants, and let off a couple of shot gun
rounds, narrowly missing the brim of his own hat. Once the gun smoke had
cleared there was a very long and very awkward silence.
government spokesperson said: ‘I don’t know why the GPs in this country
are so surprised. All we’ve done is create lots of internal domestic
problems by meddling with things we know nothing about thereby spreading
fear and moral panic amongst the public.
Does this sound familiar?
On the positive side America will help us through it all. God bless America!’
