What has Weekend Sunrise host Basil Zempilas started?
Yesterday on his 6PR radio show he jokingly referred to ABC News Breakfast host Michael Rowland as “Eddie Munster.”
“Eddie Munster we watch, (6PR co-host Steve) Millsy and I every morning. He hosts the ABC breakfast show. We call him Eddie Munster because he’s got hair like Eddie Munster,” he joked.
He added, “I think Eddie Munster thought he was going to get the Insiders gig, Millsy. (He) was kind of lobbying, and then a very, very warm tweet when David Speers was announced as the new host.”
But Rowland is fighting fire with fire via his Twitter followers:
Amongst the 50+ responses are names including:
Sam the Eagle from The Muppets
Klinger from MASH
But Zempilas copped it fair today. “What can you do? When you’re beaten by a better man you just have to cop it sweet and go quietly into the corner.”
It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye.
