In a bizarre twist of fate, blamed largely on unforeseen consequences of the Hadron Collider experiment, ‘Egg’, the fictional hero of cult 1990s television drama ‘This Life’, manifested himself in physical reality and threw a student at David Cameron at a Conservative political rally.
Scientists are still puzzled by how exactly the purely fictional entity was able to materialise at the precise moment that David Cameron was talking to students at a school in Torquay. They are further puzzled by Egg’s extraordinary display of strength when he picked up 16 year old Sports Studies Student Oscar Lembury and hurled the hooded teenager at Mr Cameron. Mr Cameron has previously advocated ‘hug a hoody’, but even he was forced to duck as ‘stand around and be injured by an airborne 16 year old’ was not part of the official Conservative education policy.
Police and security staff swiftly descended on Egg. He was easily detained- he himself was reporting difficulties standing as his balance was self-estimated at 0% for at least the next few months, and he had turned a worrying green colour. He was detained in Torquay police station alongside a number of other recently manifested fictional characters, including future prime minister Clegg and Nobel prize winning economist Mr Brown.
