It was announced today by the office of the Prime Minister that arrangements had been made for Mr Abbott and Mr Putin to compete in a winner take all wrestling match during the upcoming G20 summit in Brisbane, QLD.
“We’re all very excited about the match,” said one parliamentary insider. “And the addition of jello to the mix just makes it that little bit better.”
Mr Abbott is likely to be the underdog in this competition due to Mr Putin being an expert in several martial arts, including bear wrestling. However Mr Abbott is not put off by this. When asked about his opponents skills he replied, “Well that may well be, may well be, but I’ll tell you I have the full support of Team Australia, Team Australia, and with that sort of support how could I possibly lose?”
There has been some controversy though with supplies of the jello being sourced from overseas instead of using local manufacturers. Union representative for the Australian Jello Workers Union stated, “This is typical of this government to overlook local jello suppliers for cheap and inferior off shore products. Australia makes some of the best jello in the world and this is quite a snub for us.”
The match is expected to be televised live on Foxtel.
