Boris claims the ‘cake’ in ‘have our cake and eat it’ was always ‘chlorinated chicken’
When asked exactly what it is the Brexiteers want to do in a recent interview, Boris Johnson said:
Well, we want to be free to do what we want to do.
And we want to eat chlorinated chicken.
Chlorine being the same chemical that we’ve historically used to eradicate germs and soldiers.
To which many people who voted Brexit responded:
Things could possibly get worse-r
Obviously, getting rid of all the EU red tape is the aim of the game. But it turns out that some of that tape may actually have been preventing businesses from selling us things like:
- Flammable radiators.
- Meat pies in which the definition of ‘meat’ was as broad as you can imagine.
- TNT lolly pops.
- Somewhat reliable condoms.
- Smarties with the word ‘medicine’ written on them.
Lord of the lies
Johnson later clarified:
I’m pretty sure that, when I said we could have our cake and eat it, people understood that what I actually meant was force down our chlorinated chicken and bear it.
When it was put to Johnson that many people definitely didn’t believe that, he said:
Look, if people didn’t realise that I talked giblets by 2016, then that’s their problem! It’s not like I was shy about it!
Johnson then asked to be alone with his dinner. A dinner comprised of rare and endangered birds that he cheerfully explained were rinsed in champagne and plebeian tears.
Because you know that the people making these rules won’t be eating chemically hosed foul, right?

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
