The Miracle of the Egg By Bruce Bennett
Throwing eggs at Australian politicians has become something of a national sport. There are hopes that this activity could catch on, with other nations purchasing Australian eggs, to throw at their pollies. Why would they do this, for don’t most countries have eggs of their own to throw? Well, Australian eggs are special because they do not break when thrown.
“The moment an activist attempted to crack an egg on the head of Australian PM Scott Morrison has been captured on video. Both Morrison and the egg survived intact, though an elderly woman got knocked over in the ensuing scuffle. Morrison was ambushed by a young female protester as he campaigned at the Country Women’s Association State Conference in Albury, New South Wales, on Monday. After Morrison delivered his speech, he went into the crowd, blending in with the predominantly female attendees. As he was chatting the voters up, a woman approached from behind in what looked like an attempt to smash an egg on Morrison's head. It is unclear if it went according to plan, as the egg appeared to either have bounced off Morrison’s head or to have missed it by an inch. In any case, it apparently landed on the floor, fully intact. A photo posted by ABC News reporter Dan Conifer shows presumably the same egg without a hint of a scratch or a crack.”
Sceptics may say that the egg was hard boiled, but even so, hard boiled eggs still crack when dropped in concrete, which did not happen. Scott Morrison has not yet proclaimed that this is a miracle, or that God sent a sign, simply shrugging it all off as showing the goodness of Australian eggs. Presumably such eggs can be broken in some way if in the odd chance someone wanted to actually eat one rather than just use it as a missile. Maybe use an angle grinder.
