But it was McManus’ famous ‘$20 dollars in 20 seconds’ that had everyone in anticipation. Would he ask his final “Who would you turn gay for?”
Sure enough, he threw the question Kevin’s way. Rudd, who knew it was coming, pulled out a list and proceeded to thank all those who had emailed suggestions. There had been many names….
Dame Edna, considered Rudd, “but she said we couldn’t have a PM named Kevin.” Kel Knight, he then considered, had “style, sophistication and that unique power walk.” And he even thought about Pete Helliars’ own character, ‘Strauchnie.’ “He’s a genuine renaissance man,” Rudd noted. “Football, football, football and mullets.”
But in the end Rudd had only one answer.
“My wife Therese.”
“Is she a man?” asked Rove.
Ah well, at least he got into the spirit of it.
(and well done for the red ribbon too Rove. World AIDS Day is Dec 1.)
