However, we may have finally gone through the looking glass with a thread that could have been plucked from your deepest, darkest nightmares.
As the Tory leadership race begins to heat up, Twitter user @YesMissMurphy has created a now-viral thread comparing the 11 candidates to terrifying pieces of taxidermy.
We apologise if this gives any of you nightmares.
Rory Stewart as some sort of dog
Andrea Leadsom as whatever this is...
Sajid Javid as a demonic bat
Sam Gyimah as a rather fetching Lynx (sadly Gyimah isn't running anymore but at least he had the best-looking animal in this thread)
Mark Harper as a fox that may have taken too many drugs
Matt Hancock as a really sad otter
Esther McVey also as a fox that may have done too many drugs
Dominic Raab as a surprised cat
Jeremy Hunt as what looks like a fox but we can't be sure
Boris Johnson as a fox's head
And of course, let's not forget, Michael Gove as a puffer fish
The thread has now been shared on Twitter more than 1000 times and needless to say, people think it is hilarious and scarily accurate.
Oh and if you enjoyed this please consider donating to @YesMissMurphy's charity of choice.
