We all have to keep up with the times, and the classic arcade game Whac-A-Mole is no exception. Inventor Tim Hunkin found what could be the best villain for the game ever: bankers!

Mr Hunkin said the game was "proving very popular."

"I keep having to replace worn-out mallets," he said. "The bankers are bald and all look the same because that's how I think people see bankers, as faceless."

Players, who are promised a "truly rewarding banking experience", pay 40p to hit as many bankers as they can in 30 seconds. When a customer wins a voice says: "You win. We retire. Thank you very much to the taxpayer for paying our pensions."

Tim Hunkin's one of the world's great unsung heroes. One day I really must get round to taking him up on an offer several years ago to visit his workshop.
