A Queensland Auslan interpreter should be buying himself a lottery ticket if the old saying about birds shitting on you bringing good luck!
Mike Webb was signing in Australian sign language (Auslan) at a news conference in Brisbane yesterday where Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszcuk and deputy premier Steven Miles were speaking about the floods.
However, an unseen owl in the trees above decided to give the press conference even more press after taking a very large dump on Webb’s suit jacket and head.
The unexpected arial faeces assault caused Webb to offer viewers some unsavoury language as a woman behind the camera said: “Oh no Mickey!” in reaction to what had just happened.
Check out the faecal action below:
Later on, Palaszcuk herself took to Twitter to applaud Webb for soldiering on despite the poo splattering. The premier confirming the culprit was, indeed, a loose-bowel owl.
“Nothing stops our fabulous Mikey,” Palaszcuk wrote. “He stands by my side, he stands by Queensland’s side.”
Even the police got in on the fun.
While others described the incident as “straight out of my nightmares”.
