Dressed in Lady Gaga kilt and carrying his metaphorical bagpipes Gordon Brown spoke to an excited throng of fans, numbering in the tens, during the Butte Spring Footwear Extravaganza.
The annual event is sponsored by the American Podiatrist Association whose keen interest in dangerous footwear is obvious and keynote speakers chosen for their expertise and experience in the arena of foot in mouth disease.
After self promoting and signing copies of his four page autobiography, 'Everything I know about politics I learned from 'Yes minister', the temporary Prime Minister of the UK added support for President Obama's Healthcare overhaul and urged all doctors to support the measure.
"I stand here before you in support of the social policies a mature government must embrace in order to keep the rabble in check. Many physicians are worried about their standard of care but what is more important us or them. Socialism is severely underrated and the bad press unfair.
"In a capitalism based society anyone who aspires to work hard is rewarded but socialism rewards everyone just not as much. I don't want Obama to make the same mistakes I did. He must tax pension plans now before they are bankrupt and there is nothing left to tax.
"I also urge him to sell all the gold reserves America bought from us at 200.00 in order to pay for health care. As far as physicians go you have so much to look forward to."
Pondering how health care professionals can face ten times more paperwork, massive cuts in their payments, forced to take any and all patients, no relief for frivolous law suits and skyrocketing malpractice insurance costs and remain optimistic.
"You will never have to work weekends and holidays again not to mention ever have to be on call."
Note to American Readers: Only get sick or injured Mon-Fri from the hours of 8am and 3pm. There are no exceptions.
Note to British Readers: Gordon Brown has got to be the most boring media figure in the history of print. Something must be done!
