With Brexit looming, Britain may soon be importing lower quality meats from America – a move which will really show those EU slugs who’s boss. The most notable addition to our menus will be chlorinated chickens. One MP who’s in favour of these ultra-clean birds is Boris Johnson. To prove how much, he agreed to be chlorine washed himself.

Speaking before the hosing, Johnson said:

If chlorine is good enough to rid our pools of child widdle, I think we can trust it to un-foul our fowl.

The former foreign secretary then stripped all of his clothes off and entered the dousing room.

“You see!” he said cheerfully, as jets of mildly toxic water rippled his flesh. “Nothing to worry about here!”

This is supposedly why his hair looks like that, and also why he reminds people of a verruca.

As a real test, Johnson was asked to eat some chlorinated chicken. He refused this point blank, saying:

I’m more of a CFG chap than a KFC man.

After looking it up, we discovered that ‘CFG’ stood for ‘Cambridge Flambéd Goose’. Notably, it uses ‘hand-reared, caviar fed geese’ – suggesting this chlorinated chicken issue won’t actually affect the people pushing for it.

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.
