There was dramatic news for chip-lovers this afternoon, when John McCain revealed that from September, his convenience food company will cease to produce the tasty, fast food potato treats.
Republican Party presidential hopeful McCain, 71, said that, now that he is behind in the polls, his campaign for the White House will take up too much of his valuable time for him to be able to continue with chip production.
McCain's company has been using only the best British potatoes to produce the world's best oven chips since 1936. Other products include Potato Oven Wedges, Cheddar Cheese and Mustard Gratin and Roast Potatoes Basted in Goose Fat.
The news was met with shock from chip-eaters worldwide.
One UK chip lover, Annie Glumm, from Warrington, said:
"I'll be lost without me chips. I'll die."
Political analyst Chip Borestrom, of Fox News, said:
"It certainly looks like the Senator has finally had his chips."
