Erdogan has essentially made any form of criticism of himself illegal in Turkey. And he is now trying to do the same all over Europe. A German commedian who insulted Erdogan on a late night show in March found himself being prosecuted and placed under police protection. The Spectator, outraged at this, has offered £1,000 to the person who can write the most disgusting limerick about the President. Surely a RollOnFriday reader must walk away with the prize.
RoF has chipped in. Here's my effort:
A slack-sphinctered Turk name of Er'gan
Is acutely ashamed, it is certain,
Of the humiliation
Of his defenestration
After fisting himself by a curtain.
I fear it has been trumped by Jamie's:
Erdogan’s been banned from kids’ parties
For cramming his arse with the Smarties
Grunting “Wait, there's more”
He sh*ts on the floor
Then f*cks his urethra with car keys.
Erdogan’s Turkish delight
Is a goat that’s too timid to fight
He pins down the Billy
And inserts his willy
Whilst Merkl applauds at the sight
