News Punch: Now With Added Sketches - Miliband and Prince Harry in Oz

Punchline Challenge started as a bit of fun on Twitter and it remains so, but the response to it has prompted me to develop it further so this week I added a sketch challenge element, not knowing how well it would go or if indeed it would go at all.

Oh and a new name, that I've just thought of: News Punch.

So Prince Harry, ginger of hair and wearer of birthday suits when not wearing Nazi uniforms, is off to Australia next month to stare at his navel. Sorry, Navy. Cue the punchlines:

@FemmeDomestique: After inspecting the Women's Fleet Diving Team in Sydney, Prince Harry's looking forward to going down under.

@kitkant: Prince Harry's looking forward to going down under because he wants to experiment with a comb-over without feeling the hairs on the back of his neck rise.

@BadScentsHumour: Prince Harry's looking forward to going down under, where a nation of inbreds don't know who their real father is...

Dancing with controversy there...

@GI1970: Prince Harry's looking forward to going down under, as soon as his brother leaves the house.

@I_am_Lukem: Prince Harry's looking forward to going down under. Although reports that the trip has been organised to, 'get away from that f***ing baby' are unconfirmed.

And despite him only spending one day in the country...

@hennel: ...concerns over his protection means he'll be forced to wear factor 150 sunscreen.

Royal experts tell us that he'll fit right in...

@martintagg: ... where men are men, women are men, and sheep are nervous.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will welcome the Prince as an honoured visitor...

@BenedictFarse: ...but most Australians couldn't give a flying Windsor Castlemaine XXXX.

This is the Prince's first official visit and he will not be letting his hair down, like in Vegas ...

@Diversion50: ..although if he does have a streak, that could get him into trouble.

@AnneMac10: ...he'll have to be careful where he puts his didgeridoo.

Indeed. In other news, the Labour Leader Ed Miliband revealed in his conference speech how he'd helped a cyclist who went on to described him as, 'an action hero'. What would that be like?

@Charisma_Effect:

NIGHT: ON THE ROOF OF A BURNING SKYSCRAPER, ED FACES HIS NEMESIS

MILLIBAND: At last Cameron we meet, a final moment where only one of us will survive.

CAMERON: I'm sorry, who are you again?

@GI1970: (1)(2)(3)

NIGHT: ON THE ROOF OF A BURNING SKYSCRAPER, ED FACES HIS NEMESIS.

NEMESIS: So Mr. Miliband, we finally meet. Did you really think you could hide from me?

ED: Er, well, I think -

NEMESIS: And to think you have such a reputation. Now look at you. If only the people could see you now.

ED: Well, err...

NEMESIS: The world's a small place. America's just a hijacked flight away.

ED: I think you want my brother.

NEMESIS: Really? Sorry. Forget everything I just said.

@sandyfootwells:

NIGHT: ON THE ROOF OF A BURNING SKYSCRAPER, ED FACES HIS NEMESIS.

CAMERON: Ha! Miliband, I've set fire to the living quarters of this skyscraper.

MILIBAND: Damn you, Cameron and your damned bedroom attacks.

CAMERON: It's a spare bedroom subsidy!

MILIBAND: Time for my superpower.

CAMERON: Being almost invisible?

MILIBAND: Being wet. Very wet. The fire will never reach the top.

CAMERON: Neither will Britain, ha ha ha! But why so calm? Your brother lives in these apartments.

MILIBAND: That's where you're wrong. David lives in New York.

CAMERON: This is New York.

MILIBAND: Oh bugger. I should be better than this.

More News Punch soon.
