101 uses for Iain Gray: #65 Radiation absorber

Well you learn something new every day. Apparently the gray is the SI unit of "absorbed radiation dose due to ionizing radiation". To be precise, 1 gray = the absorption of 1 joule of energy, in the form of ionizing radiation, by 1 kg of matter.

Now, since Iain Gray has been made redundant by Jim Murphy, surely his time would be better employed swimming up and down the Gare Loch absorbing all the radiation our marvellous nuclear subs spit out. Indeed, as well as helping clean up the environment he could also provide a timely boost to tourism. People would come from far and wide to see this increasingly endangered Gray wail.

I presume he could only use the crawl stroke as anything else could leave him treading water.

Came across this! http://blog.scotlandoffice.gov.uk/?p=206#respond

Hmm, he flaps enough to use the butterfly I suppose.

Thanks for the link, although you might have warned me Skeletor was lying in wait. I've left him a comment asking when he's going to respond to the Guardian article comments.

How many blogs does Murphy have? He's trying to keep one step ahead of the baying mob of cyber-nats no doubt!

I like it! Definitely worth the sound of two hands clapping.
