London mayor Boris Johnson gets stuck on zip wire (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Britain’s Olympic PR stunt-fest roped itself today when London’s Mayor, ‘loveable oaf’ Boris Johnson, got stuck on a zip-line 20 feet over a field of bemused flag waving Brits – and yes, despite the sheer inanity of it all, went viral.

­Like a mayoral white-haired walrus in pin-stripe and parachute harness, London’s Boris hung legs-askew over the masses, as if held there by sheer charisma and divine right, before demanding a rope and ladder to return himself to terra firma.
