Following Juncker's triumphant tweet today that he is "more confident than ever that I will be the next European Commission President," BM thinks it's perhaps time to create him an anticipatory 'Mr Potato Head' figurine.

Incumbent commission boss Jose Manuel Barroso, and his counterpart at the Council Herman Van Rompuy, earned themselves potato heads of their own, after their social media teams - for reasons of twitter-based brevity - decided to abbreviate "President" to "PDT" - also a common brasserie-menu shortening of 'pommes de terre'.

 So here, with only a modicum of unwieldy exposition, is the aspirant...

 PDT Juncker...
