A man was arrested today for looking suspiciously like a box of cornflakes. The incident, which took place in the early hours of this morning on a Manchester council estate, is just another in the string of arrests in Operation You Look like Box of Something.
A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police assured the public they had the situation under control. Although this does little to alleviate the fears of the public who are being visually assaulted by people who look like boxes of something up and down the country.
"We feel we are nearing to the centre of this diabolical affair," Sir Gary Swell of the Home Office told us. "It's still early days but the days for these freaks of nature are shortening by the...erm, day." He added.
Further incidents of a woman who looked like a box of those liquid washing machine tablets walking her dog in Liverpool, a man who resembled a box of dried onions casually strolling down Edinburgh's Princes Street and a ghoulish baby who looked like a tiny box of tampons were all reported to the police later in the day.
The Prime Minister has stood behind Gary Swell and calmed the nation by saying these monsters will be driven from the streets and locked behind larder doors as soon as possible.
BREAKING NEWS...Sir Gary Swell of the Home Office has been shot in a fracas when being arrested by the police. This incident came after a member of the public saw him talk on television and immediately phoned the People Who Look Like A Box of Something hotline, telling them he looked exactly like a box of broken biscuits.
