Ah, Boris Johnson really is the comedy gift that keeps on giving, isn't he? Just imagine what japes we'll all have when he's Prime Minister. (We know, we know - we really shouldn't joke about it.)

The latest? On Tuesday, the Mayor of London appeared to briefly forget the name of Olympic sponsors BT while thanking UK telecommunications operators at Everything, Everywhere's 4G launch. He did, however, remember to name-check Everything, Everywhere's rivals Vodafone before he mentioned his hosts.

So to honour this occasion, we've put together a video slideshow of some of Boris's funniest moments. Yes, folks - sometimes, real life is more far-fetched and toe-curling than The Thick Of It...
