Shorten’s Zinger To PM: “I Know You Are But What Am I?”
Bill Shorten today unveiled his latest zinger for the Australian public.
In response to an eye-watering assault from PM Malcolm “Trumble” which left the Opposition leader quietly sobbing, he silently commissioned a team of experts to produce a face-saving comeback.
Twenty four hours passed, and the response is now out.
Shorten gathered reporters to his office and then took 5 minutes to personally call the PM and deliver the comeback zinger without context.
A transcript of the call providers to journalists went as follows:
call is ringing Shorten (to reporters): this is going to be great! Turnbull: Hello? Shorten: I know you are but what am i? Turnbull: Hello? Shorten: I said, I know you are but what am i? Turnbull: Pardon? Shorten: I said, I know you are but what am i? Turnbull: Oh this must be Bill. Good one mate. Did you think of that yourself? Shorten: No.. I uh. Turnbull: I didn't think so. But nice try. Better luck next time. Turnbull: *click* call ends. Shorten: No.. uh.. takes one to know one!
Mr Shorten reported that the call went well, and he got the result he was hoping for.
