Blithely unconcerned about his sinking popularity, Tony Abbott appeared before the nation’s press today at Parliament House and defiantly insisted he’d “go and eat worms”.
“Nobody likes me”, said Mr Abbott, “Everybody hates me”, he continued, shrugging seemingly unworried – “Think I’ll go and eat worms.”
Quite the connoisseur, Mr Abbott insisted he intended to eat both “big fat juicy ones” and “eensie weensy squeensy ones”, and would watch how they wiggle and squirm, clearly indicating this wasn’t going to be just a fad diet.
Veteran nutritionist Rosemary Stanton expressed considerable concern in Tony Abbott’s new diet, insisting there was insufficient carbohydrate content, not to mention too much dirt and protein. This was despite the obvious evidence from even a casual viewing of other senior government ministers portly portfolios that a strong carbohydrate intake in a diet is far from healthy.
Meanwhile, Julie Bishop is said to have challenged Tony Abbott to a Gagh eating competition, having acquired a taste for it in its raw form when she visited the Klingon Homeworld during her new year vacation.
