Black Monday: Boris shocks London with striking new look

Boris Johnson

In a move reminiscent of Britney Spears’ 2007 dramatic self-shearing, our beloved Bo-Jo was spotted pitching up to work at City Hall this morning sporting an unfamiliar look: a mop of soot-black hair. While the public reaction to the disappearance of Boris’ trademark blonde barnet has been one of shock, experts say the physical reinvention is a typical consequence of the pressures of high office. ‘To be honest, I’m amazed Boris’s transformation, or as it’s technically known “emofication” hasn’t happened sooner. Running the greatest city in the world is no easy job’, said Dr. Lee O’Leary of Harley Street practitioners RO & FL. ‘We can only hope that it’s a relatively brief phase and he stops subjecting colleagues at City Hall to the constant din of his favourite Marilyn Manson playlist soon.’ The Mayor’s office was contacted for comment but declined.
