New calls to change the Australia Day date to when Scott Morrison reportedly shat himself at Engadine Maccas

SHIT IDEA: In the absence of any obvious date to change Australia Day to, a group of activists say it should be the day Scott Morrison allegedly shat himself at Engadine McDonald’s.

Whether it’s true or not, the rumour is that on the 20th of September 1997, the former PM soiled his pants after the Cronulla Sharks lost the NRL grand final.

“What a perfect day for Australia Day,” said one activist. “And it would be a perfect excuse to go to Maccas!”

Engadine McDonald’s says it supports the proposed new date.

“We’d be flattered to be a part of our great nation’s history,” says the restaurant’s manager.

Scott Morrison was not available for comment.
