The chocolate on a Magnum is too thick. I see what they were going for, but it's worse than the tissue-thin layer you get on a no-frills supermarket choc ice because it's thick enough to resist melting. You take half the bloody covering off with every bite, rather than a nice, proportionately-sized amount. Magnums also look like they were designed for insertion.

Don't eat a Magnum Classic sitting on a cream sofa, even from a deep bowl and having first wrapped the sofa in clingfilm.

How do you sit on a cream sofa without just falling into the cream?

A week after eating an Aldi ersatz Magnum I found a blob of chocolate.  At the time I remember wondering where it went, but I knew I'd turn up.

Shame they didn't do a 'WWII Marine vs Aldi Shopper' episode of Deadliest Warrior

In Korea, they have a folk tale about colds. It's because the ghost of a man with two knobs has gratified himself with your nostrils. He didn't find a woman with two vagina's to marry in life, you see, so now his spirit roams the land fucking nostrils.

And haven't we all found extra penises floating around in rivers?  I know I have.

The marketing has in the past made a thing out of Magnum's impracticality, likewise Cadbury Flake with the oh so suggestive finger wiping the crumb up from the sexy bunny's mouth.

My opinion: more chocolate is by default better, no matter in what way it turns into shards on impact .

That was Cadbury Caramel.  Flake was just a sexeh lady, sometimes in a bath.

Yes, but it's no basis for a system of government.

I remember as a kid being bought a Feast. You remember them - a lump of chocolate, surrounded by chocolate ice cream and wrapped in more chocolate. It was a really hot day, and we were on a car journey. Off we go in the car  - there's me in the back. Dad's driving and he has the window open. And I'm eating my Feast, being careful to avoid drips and managing quite well... except the outer chocolate shell has a small hole in the bottom, and the internal chocolate ice cream has already started to melt. The wind from the open window is catching the droplets as they fall, and effectively spraying my entire frontage from the neck down with brown flecks. I'd completely finished the Feast before I even noticed.

I realised that when he appeared in Chernobyl. I never thought I'd love to see him potentially attend the funeral of Richard Madeley, though.

He's played by an actor called David Dencik in Chernobyl. Doesn't really look much like him but the head splodge is all present and correct.

It's like how Taika Waititi doesn't look very much like Hitler, but you don't need to do much more than stick a moustache on him to get the idea across. Mike's look is a little less accessible to the impersonator without a decent makeup kit, though.

It's pretty easy to pass for hitler yeah.

It's rare you see a convincing Nixon, I guess between the wobbly jowels and finding a resting facial expression that both conveys insane bitterness and yet also looks like someone's at the vinegars, you can only reasonably expect two.

Who was it did a Nixon show recently under super heavy makeup and ended up not looking a damn thing like Tricky Dick? Harry Shearer maybe?
