If the Tube were run by Twitter Revisited

On Friday I wrote a post about the
Twitter Fail Whale and pondered what would happen if the London Underground were run by Twitter and TfL had to come up with a 140 or less character message explaining "over capacity":

If the Tube were run by Twitter

"Personally, I think that London Underground should have their own Fail Whale and it would be a cartoon of an inflated Boris Johnson head being lifted by hundreds of flying Oystercards. If I was remotely good at PhotoShop or could be arsed, I would make it. But I'm not."

Fortunately Ian of Whoknowswherethoughtscomefrom is better than I am at PhotoShop, could be arsed and produced the following Tube Fail Whale

Boris Fail Whale by Ian of whoknowswherethoughtscomefrom.blogspot.com

It compares very favourably to the original Twitter Fail Whale.

Ian it rocks and I particularly like the orange London sea that the Boris whale is being carried up from.
