WHO WOULD WANT to be David Cameron this morning? Anyone? Bueller?

A new book by Cameron’s ex-Tory peer Lord Ashcroft claims that the UK Prime Minister “put a private part” in a dead pig’s mouth as part of a bizarre initiation for a dining society at Oxford. Ooh-er.

Naturally, when the news of the book’s contents broke last night, Twitter could not contain its glee.

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker had to confirm that he knew nothing about it

The first episode of the series contains a scene with a fictional Prime Minister that is eerily similar to the allegations levelled at Cameron. Brooker says he knows NOTHING.

People said in terms of significance, it was up there with the moon landings

The story was inserted (sorry) into popular memes

A ridiculous amount of pictures of Cameron posing with pigs were discovered

People appealed to Malcolm Tucker for help

There was no end to the Peppa Pig jokes

Sandwich boards were doctored appropriately

Obama had to be informed, of course

Ed Miliband and his bacon sandwich were dragged into it

And this. Just this

UK Twitter thinks it’s the best day the social network has ever seen, but we beg to differ. #YokeGateForever
