For Easter this year, the UK's Labour party set up a brilliant political jab at British politician Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The stunt involved producing a small number of 'Easter Cleggs,' packed with witty wordplay against the deputy PM.
The chocolate bust of Clegg was described as "completely hollow" and is said to "leave a bad taste in your mouth" and will "melt under pressure." As well, the box for the Easter Clegg notes that it includes a free mug inside, although this seems to be some careful word twisting, meaning that the only mug you'll really get is the face on the chocolate Clegg.
The Easter Clegg was released just in time for Easter, as well as ahead of the elections that will take place in May.
