Australia’s next Prime Minister caught on camera eating ear wax

Australia’s Federal elections are just a few weeks away…

If the pre-election polls are anything to believe, this is the hon. Kevin Rudd, Australia’s next (?!) Prime Minister – that’s like the President, dear American friends!.

Don’t they feed parliamentarians properly in Canberra?!

What amazes me is he would have know the cameras were rolling… he’s sitting directly behind the guy speaking! D’oh!

Wait there’s more…

Kevin has his own Facebook page.

And on the other side of politics, here’s one of Tony Abbott looking a bit… well, you decide. (Thanks Mandy!)

    Eeewww. That is really gross!

    Yeah. I caught this on TV the other day. Unbelievable!

    I’m not Australian, and I don’t know that much about aussie politics, but, I find myself thinking that Rudd is going to do more damage than good, if he gets in.

    What do I know though? I’m just praying that God has His will fulfilled, and I trust that He’ll help whoever He chooses.

    (coughs like she’s trying to remove a hairball from her own throat) Yuck.

    That is crazy. I had the same thought, he can’t be that comfortable “forgetting” that the camera is on.

    It does kind of “humanize” him, though.

    p.s. Thanks for adding me on Digg. I hate to admit this, but I don’t know Digg well enough to figure out how to add friends in return. (hangs head in shame)

    Ewwww! I didn’t know ANYONE actually ATE their earwax. That’s vile. That’s worse than eating boogers.

    Perhaps he’s tired of eating the bullsxxt that comes out of Parliament.

    That’s just gross! I am sure he was just scratching his ear and then chewing his nails. But still, YUCK!

    Arman,

    What does god have to do with anything?
    why do you need to tell us what you pray about?
    do you really pray for australian politics while you sit in your home in another country? arn’t there greater concerns or things you could be putting your mind to than praying for some guy picking his ear?

    get off your high horse.

    Oh please. He scratched his ear and then was chewing his fingernails. Get a life.

    I thought for sure that next YouTube video was a joke, especially when he moved his head and his eyes lined up with the microphones.

    Initially, I thought, ‘Okay. This man has dry lips.’ But he kind of lingered.

    And then he started to look like he was leering.

    And that tongue. Never. Went. Away. (Rubs eyes with the palms of hands to scour the image away.)

    Those European politicians are somethin’ else.

    That’s something I just didn’t want to see this morning..

    Have you seen Kevin Rudd Chinese Propaganda Video Alister?

    It’s very funny – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptccZze7VxQ

    OMG, this is gross! And on TV!

    Wow. That is disgusting. What the hell was he thinking? Hasn’t heard of TV and cameras? Nice legacy….

  16. Posted 9 years, 12 months ago // Permalink

    it’s a bit ick but it is elitist behavior that angers the voters. They hated Bush 41 not knowing how much milk cost or John Kerry windsurfing and not getting cheese wiz on a philly cheesesteak. this is an everyman moment he managed to overcome.

    While that video should be nothing significant, it does look a little strange. But it’s also interesting how the seemingly mundane things affect the reputation of prominent people. Is this really how we should base our impressions of a person’s capabilities?

    thank you, you have a new found reader and fan.

    Politicians are so gross, and when you think that these people are leading us…

    Great Post

  22. Posted 8 years, 5 months ago // Permalink

    Lol, that is pretty gross. This is another reason why not just anybody is cut out to be a celeb. If I had cameras on me constantly, pretty much everybody would be grossed out.

  23. Posted 8 years, 4 months ago // Permalink

    wow, ear wax??? what kind of minister is that?? what a bad attitude, but funny one 🙂

  24. Posted 7 years, 6 months ago // Permalink

    Ew….. gross lol

  25. Posted 7 years, 5 months ago // Permalink

    I don’t understand why someone would want to eat their earwax. It’s gross, doesn’t taste good, and looks ridiculous when caught on camera LOL
