Friday caption competition

Boris shows us his skills.

The floppy-haired Mayor of London was in the news a lot this week. Firstly, a shock poll suggested his rival Ken Livingstone had overtaken him, and secondly for his proposed plan for a new airport in the Thames Estuary.

The press enthusiastically took up the labelling of this airport as "Boris Island": another victory for Johnson as he stamps his personal brand all over his mini-empire of London, following on from "Boris bikes" (actually introduced by Ken).

In honour of the Mayor's multiple headlines, here he is -- erm, juggling with weirdly shaped vegetables at a free food event in London.

What is going on? What is he saying? Doing? Why?! Do with it what you will. Answers in the comment box below please.
