This British Pundit Just Ate A Book On TV Because This Year Isn't Weird Enough

HE ATE HIS BOOK— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) June 10, 2017

A British political pundit lived up to his promise to eat his own Brexit book after making an incorrect prediction on the U.K.’s general election this week.
Matthew Goodwin, a politics professor at the University of Kent, appeared on Sky News on Saturday to make good on his vow. It followed him betting in a Twitter post that the U.K.’s Labour Party, under Jeremy Corbyn, would not even receive 38 percent of the vote. It instead ended up exceeding his expectations, receiving 40 percent.

I'm saying this out loud. I do not believe that Labour, under Jeremy Corbyn, will poll 38%. I will happily eat my new Brexit book if they do— Matthew Goodwin (@GoodwinMJ) May 27, 2017

So, he swallowed his pride ― and what may have been a few pages ― during his live TV appearance.
“I am a man of my word, so what I’m gonna do is sit here, and eat my book, while you guys carry on,” he told the host before proceeding to rip out a few pages of his book on last year’s Brexit vote.
Viewers went wild in response, many amazed at his sincerity and others insistent that he wash it all down (while offering tips to help).

Yo, if I catch any of you saying he ate the book when he clearly spat it out I'm blocking you like the cowards and traitors you are— Mumbai Lykos (@TomWaits4NoMan) June 10, 2017

We already knew, and know that you didn't eat the book. You ate pages of a book. You said you'd eat the book. Keep going.— Bundist 4 Life (@haitter) June 10, 2017

Chewing on paper is not eating the book, i demand satisfaction— Tintin (@TintinnyTins) June 10, 2017
