Man Finds Pork Scratching That Resembles Donald Trump
A man got the surprise of his life when he opened a pack of pork scratchings to see Donald Trump staring back at him.
Matthew Smith, from Middlesbrough, was enjoying a couple of pints with some mates when he purchased a pack of the salty treat.
The 40-year-old said he and his mates couldn't stop laughing when they saw the US president peering out.
Matthew, a solicitor, said: "It's definitely the hair that makes it.
"I was enjoying a packet of pork scratchings washed down with a stout or two at my local pub with a couple of mates.
"I noticed that one of the porcine snacks bore a quite uncanny resemblance to a certain Donald J Trump - much to the amusement of myself and my drinking companions."
The unbelievable encounter occurred at Matthew's local pub, the Linthorpe Hotel.
But Matthew said he couldn't bear to part with the pork scratching and admitted he still has it in his possession.
He said: "Everyone around the table was in agreement that it definitely resembled 'the Donald' - it's definitely down to the hairs and the inimitable, distinctive comb over effect.
"It was unanimously decided that the pork scratching should not be eaten and should be preserved for as long as possible.

"It just seemed a shame to throw it away. It's not every day you're lucky enough to stumble upon a bar snack that so uncannily resembles a notorious world leader.
"I took it home in the packet and thankfully it wasn't damaged as Samuel Smith's pork scratchings are known for their particularly robust constitution.
"As thoroughly tragic as this probably sounds, I do still own the pork scratching and it resides safely within the drawer of my desk in my office at home."
But this isn't the first time someone has been faced with a food item that looks just like the 74-year-old.
Earlier this month, Amanda Brewster, from Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, saw his face in a frozen tuna steak.
The mum-of-two said the fish even had the same hairstyle as the former reality star.
But Amanda didn't let it put her off, and after taking a couple of snaps of the fish she whacked it in the oven.
The 36-year-old said: "I fancied a tuna steak, took it out of the freezer, put it on the side and I thought 'oh my god, that looks like Donald Trump'.
"It had a face, it had that little bit on the top that looks like hair and it totally looked like him."
