Australian politiko laughs and chokes on sushi
Graham Perrett, a member of the Australian House of Representatives for Moreton, Queensland, found a political satire comedy funny that he ended up having three stitches and a black eye.
The lawmaker was eating sushi when a scene from the American television show Veep had him laughing.
“I was laughing so hard when Jonah then gets interviewed by Dan,” a BuzzFeed News article published online on May 4 quoted Perrett as telling BuzzFeed News.
“Some of the rice went down the wrong way, I started choking and I kind of stumbled forward and knocked my head on the corner of the kitchen cabinet,” said Perrett who, according to the article, knocked himself unconscious.
The Australian’s Strewth column is the first to report the incident.
