Today’s big legal news story was that Max Clifford’s penis has been measured.

An appropriately-named doctor was chosen to conduct the measurement.

The hashtag #MaxCliffordPenis can be traced back to 18 March, when it was coined by a keen follower of the PR guru’s trial.

But it was only today that popular Twitter account @CourtNewsUK adopted it.

Some loved it.

Others wanted #MaxCliffordPenis to stop.

Meanwhile, the jokes kept coming…

…as fake politicians waded in with penis-based puns.

And finally…no Twitter hashtag sensation would be complete without its very own Twitter account.
