Splat the MP game: it's a corker

How to chuck eggs at politicians without getting punched

Some creative folk have been inspired by Bruiser Prescott's antics yesterday and knocked up a Splat the MP game, which you can play here.

The most important thing though is that not only has PanLogic put its funny cap on but it has also made a game worth playing. Well, for one day anyway.

The scene is the House of Commons and you need to chuck eggs at leading MPs as they pop up - but don't hit Britney Spears of Robbie Williams or you'll lose points. All the party leaders feature, plus frequent appearances from our man in the red corner, John Prescott - who will throw punches at you.

Not only that, but occasionally a naked Ann Widdecombe (a scary sight indeed) will swing Tarzan-like across the floor and a floating Maggie Thatcher head (complete with halo) will soar about. Don't waste all your eggs on trying to get Maggie though, or you'll get a sarky reply when your pathetic score is displayed. Enjoy. ®
