A Tory MP who once appeared half naked in a TV advert has finally taken the plunge and admitted to being a ‘giant penis’.
In a move that will hopefully inspire others, Plymouth MP Johnny Mercer responding to a tweet about a genital-shaped cloud on a BBC weather report which appeared to show a rudely-shaped cloud pointing at the Devon city.
But while BBC weatherman Matt Taylor appeared not to spot the willy shape several viewers – including Johnny – were quick to spot the phallic graphic.
He then responded to a tweet which read: “Exeter @ExpressandEcho reports ‘giant penis’ heading for neighbouring city of Plymouth”.
Johhny quipped back: “A bit early. I haven’t even left London yet.”
The MP’s humour went down well among twitter users and was retweeted more than 200 times.
Peter McCormack was among those to comment. He said: “He said a giant one Johnny, you’re in the clear.”
While Juan Incognito wrote on the social network: “Autumn statement has been hard on everyone?”
The BBC broadcast the weather report with the naughty storm shortly before 7am on Wednesday as areas surrounding Plymouth were hit by a flurry of snow. The MP previously caused a stir when he appeared naked in a Dove shower gel advert shown on American television.
