Well, that’s the idea. But Piers Morgan has always preferred to march to the beat of his own drummer. So, when a tweeter asked him what he’d be giving up for Lent:

Maybe Morgan’s answer was in earnest, or maybe he was just trying to make light of his pathetic situation. Either way, he’s a media hack with a knack for jackassery, and, try as he may, he’ll never be able to give that up.
