Sandwich hit a Prime Minister - level 3
The Australian Prime Minister has been hit by yet another sandwich, this time a salami one.
While visiting Lyneham High School in Canberra, Julia Gillard didn't quite receive the welcome she was hoping for when on arrival a student threw a sandwich at her, narrowly missing her head but hitting her arm.
The PM laughed it off though, "I think he must’ve thought I was hungry."
Yes, that's exactly what she must have thought. The school says they are speaking to the boy involved.
This is the second time this month a sandwich has been thrown at the Prime Minister. The first was a Vegemite one during a school visit in Queensland. We wonder if or what the next flavour will be.
Interesting words: laugh off (pretend that something is less serious than it really is), Vegemite (soft dark salty spread which people put on bread).
