And now, a story about hot dogs.
Both Australians and New Zealanders are concerned about a Bunnings health and safety directive that dictates where the onions should go on a hot dog. Apparently, the onions should go below the sausage, so as to avoid a slip hazard.
This isn’t a joke, apparently.
Bunnings is a DIY, garden and hardware store that also sells hot dogs at a ‘sausage sizzle’ every so often.
This safety regulation has become such a thing that the leaders of both Australia and New Zealand have issued a joint statement mocking it, reports The Guardian.
New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern addressed the trans-Tasman barbeque concern, saying both she and Morrison wanted sausage sizzles to continue in perpetuity, no matter the risks.
“I think we should make a joint commitment that on our watches, the Bunnings sausage sizzle shall continue,” Ardern said.
“I agree, I agree,” said Morrison. “Onions on top, or underneath, however you like.”
“Just onions; they need to be available,” said Ardern. “So that’s resolved!”
This ridiculous story was then picked up by a radio station, whose DJ tested whether or not it was possible to slip on onions in a parking lot. He failed.
Then The Warehouse, New Zealand’s largest general goods store, took a jab at Bunnings in a Twitter post, saying: “We’re satisfied with our sausage safety standards”.
You’d think that Australia would have bigger things to worry about like that ‘it’s okay to be white” vote that slipped through, or that time a school employee encouraged Nazi dress-up in his classroom.
But no…onions on hotdogs at hardware stores.
