This is Philip Hammond, the chancellor of the exchequer. He's known as Spreadsheet Phil to some and reportedly actually wanted his first Budget, delivered earlier today, to be a bit boring.
And boy, it really was.
But going against type, he actually managed a few pretty good jokes (for a politician, delivering a major speech).
He even turned his dullard reputation into what can only be described as witty banter.
He made a mildly funny gag about a former chancellor having a good Budget but being sacked 10 weeks later.
There was this smooth transition from a section on driverless cars to an attack on Labour's leadership.
The Labour frontbench did not see the funny side of it.
He referenced Professor Stephen Hawking's recent criticism of Labour with this puntastic topical gag.
Corbyn: still not amused.
At this point he was casually tossing out long-term economic puns.
The Tories were enjoying it almost as much as Theresa May enjoyed Prime Minister's Questions earlier on.
