Oh, well, It’s really quite funny.
I was in bed sleeping at 2 o’clock this morning; my wife comes in and says,
“Oh! The shop’s been, uh, someone ran into the shop.”
And I said “uh, what?” So, I jumped down the bed and all I had was my
undies on, and I’ve walked out the front and I seen out the car smashed and I seen the bloke
walking back to the car. And so I’ve walked outside and I said, “what are you doing, mate?
Like, “you can’t be leaving the scene.” And he goes, “don’t be a hero mate!
And I said, “I’m not trying to be a hero, but the police are coming!”
And he just decided he’d scoot up the road,
and I just said, “nah, it’s not going on like that mate.”
So I jumped in my car, and I started chasing him up the road. And then he went down a side street,
and then the police were coming, and I flashed them and sent them off in the direction him.
But mate all I had was my jocks on. I was chasing him up the street, and I’m just, like, “mate!” Like…
‘Cuz you told me that this is your mate shop.
And you didn’t want him to get away.
Yeah, nah, nah! It, well, my mate’s mum’s had this shop for, like, 40-odd years. And, uh…
Look at it! Look at it! Whoa!
It’s a mess, isn’t it?
Beyond a mess! Like, words, words can’t explain how it is mate. Like…
Now, Daniel, you’ve managed to put some pants on in the meantime.
That’s good to hear. Do you feel like a hero?
Not really. It’s just something you got to do for the community, mate.
It’s like, you look after your mates and your mates will always look after you.
There you go. Good attitude! There you go guys: Daniel, quite the Australian hero here this morning.
As for the owners of the fish and chip shop,
well they are insured but there is a big mess to clean up this morning.
Oh, wouldn’t you like to live next door to Daniel?
Aussie of the day!
Yeah, thanks a lot.
Cheers! What Daniel needs to realize – Daniel, if you can hear me –
you know all good superheroes wear their jocks on the outside, so it kind of fits the brief. Pardon the pun.
Yeah, but I had nothing on, bar my jocks!
Well you missed that bit of the uniform, but that’s okay. You’re a hero in our eyes. Well done, Daniel!
Yeah, cheers. Thanks a lot guys.
Goes to show what you can achieve in your underwear.
Thank you very much, Jessica Miller. We’ll check in with you again shortly.
