In what was supposed to be a day of last-minute political campaign media stunts on Election Day, all political candidates took a secondary role to the news that the internet sensation Grumpy Cat died.
Grumpy, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, passed away peacefully at home in Arizona, after taking the internet by storm with his scowling face. And he wasn’t the only one with a scowling face, as ScoMo and Shortness were both miffed that they had to spend the day talking about him rather than the election.
Annoying for the party leaders, but funny for the rest of us, people everywhere wanted to only talk about Grumpy.
“Prime Minister, what’s your stance on Grumpy Cat?” asked a voter.
“Well the real issue is…” started ScoMo before being booed.
“… is how much I will miss him,” finished the PM.
Bill Shorten faced the same problem, not being able to get a word in edge wise unless it was about old scowl face.
Whether this loss of one day campaigning will make much difference is irrelevant as both candidates, according to Grumpy Cats last expression, are shit.
