'90s comedian's weird 'baby and timebomb' tweet left everyone scratching their heads

Lee Hurst, now there's a name we haven't heard in a while.

You probably remember the comedian from his time on sports panel show They Think It's All Over, on which he appeared between 1995 and 1997.

The comedian has had a relatively low profile for the last decade or so, but came back with a bang with an utterly bizarre tweet in the light of Donald Trump's comments about torture.

After some social media users questioned the President's claim that torture 'absolutely works', and indeed questioned whether it is a tool that should be employed in any circumstances, Hurst came up with this question.

We have a few questions.


First, what the f**k?

Second, who leaves their baby with a terrorist?

Third, why does Hurst have '2010' in his username?

Fourth, how do you know your baby is tied to a timebomb if you can't find it?

Fifth, what's the difference between a bomb and a timebomb?

Sixth, why has he hashtagged the word 'torture'?

And seventh, again, what the f**k?

Hurst later claimed the original tweet was 'an experiment', though some of the answers sent his way were clearly sent without that knowledge.


As for Hurst's own response to one commenter, the less said the better.
