THE future is looking bright for a child who has the skill and confidence to tip crisp crumbs into his mouth, it has been confirmed.
Ten-year-old Ryan Whittaker recently impressed passers-by as he poured the last remaining crumbs of his salt and vinegar crisps into his mouth without breaking his stride.
Onlooker Wayne Hayes said: “This kid knows what he’s doing. You could tell by the way he shook the crumbs into a corner of the bag before knocking them all back in one smooth motion.
“I tried to do that when I was his age but I ended up choking on the crisp dust as it hit the back of my throat. It’s not as easy as he makes it look.
“He’s definitely going to be rich and famous one day, is what I’m saying. I should’ve got his autograph.”
Fellow eyewitness Lucy Parry agreed: “I’m a grown woman and I still can’t put the last few crisp bits away like he did. Usually I have to clumsily claw out the final scraps and make a terrible racket in the process.
“Mind you I’m trapped in a dead-end job and a loveless marriage so I guess it all adds up.”
