Matt Hancock is Now "Man Cock" Thanks to News Anchor's Hilarious Mix Up

Getting people's names wrong by accidentally turning them into naughty words is always going to be funny. It was hilarious when it happened to Jeremy Hunt (although he didn't think so), and now it's happened to Matt Hancock - and it's still hilarious.

The health secretary does have the word 'cock' in his name so it was bound to happen eventually. Labelling him as a sentient penis that's stuffed itself into a suit, taped a shoe to each ball, and repurposed a few pubic hairs to recreate half a head of hair, is just *chef's kiss*. Perhaps the adventures of Man Cock could be serialised - Man Cock mismanages the NHS: Part 26, Man Cock and friends love Cummings, Man Cock tries to grow bigger balls, etc. The BBC is the culprit this time (via Reddit), reporting that Man Cock urged people to not to attend protests with warnings that it could risk the spread of coronavirus.

Jeremy Cunt got a bit sick of the jokes about his own name, which were still floating around two years after the initial snafu. It turns out that the Freudian slip of news readers pales in comparison to his childhood peers doing it on purpose. Last year he said:

"I’m used to it. I had this when I was at school. Personally I think people should just grow up and get over the fact that my last name rhymes with a rather unpleasant word.”

If you can't accept that the British are going to rinse you for having a name that sounds a tiny bit rude, you shouldn't be campaigning to be the Prime Minister. Just ignore it, like Man Cock. [reddit]
