Spot the Difference: Farage and Thunderbirds’ Puppet

This is another hilarious meme I found on the SlatUKIP page. It shows the striking resemblance to the Purple Duce, and Lady Penelope’s butler from Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds.

Butler Penelope Farage

I far rather prefer the gentleman on the right. He, his mistress and their supermarionated chums, the Tracy brothers, fearlessly and altruistically saved lives while risking their own week after week. They’re one of the great classics of British SF and children’s television. And I think it’s FAB that they’ve returned to ITV to enchant and delight a new generation of kids. They’re now CGI, and have now been joined by a female member, but the concept and the spirit seems exactly the same.

Thunderbirds are Go!

But let’s hope UKIP stay firmly on the Launchpad.
