He is the hero we deserve. H/T Metro.

Forget Lucy Powell in the foreground. Look at this man. LOOK AT HIM.


If you know this man, or even better are this man, get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.

The Muffin Man has got in touch. He writes:


I am the muffin man


The muffin man"

After further questions from BuzzFeed News, he added: "I am sorely disappointed at the lack of a free buffet here. I am so glad that my comrades at TUSC redistributed their muffin yummyness."

Here is a picture of the muffin man.
