"I heard a rumour that Cadbury is bringing out an oriental chocolate bar. Could be a Chinese Wispa."Very funny. I should know - I wrote this joke more than two years ago.
Admittedly, I didn't have the platform the the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to publicise my joke - I just posted it on Twitter - but as you can see, I was doing this joke as far back as March 2011:
I am going to make a bubbly milk chocolate bar, with a layer of sweet'n'sour sauce, and market it as a Chinese Wispa...

In total, I have Tweeted the joke four times (three times publicly, once to drummer and producer Craig Blundell):
I will admit that Mr Auton's version is rather better worded (he is a professional comedian, after all) - but no one can really deny that this is, in essentials, the same joke. And that I got there first.
Where's my prize?
