“A Bulging Dick!” Tony Armstrong Makes Wonderful X-Rated Blunder On ABC News Breakfast

Tony Armstrong made an NSFW blunder on ABC News Breakfast this morning, when he accidentally said “dick” instead of “disc”.

Armstrong appeared to have a slip of the tongue when he said, “bulging dick” instead of “bulging disc,” when he was referring to Australian cricket captain, Tim Paine’s injury.

Armstrong said, “Tim Paine is set to undergo neck surgery but medical staff remain confident the veteran will be fit for the Ashes. Paine has a bulging dick.”

Armstrong, seemingly instantly realised his mistake and corrected himself and said, “bulging disc.”

However, his co-host, Lisa Millar couldn’t contain her laughter, and his other co-host, Michael Rowland also appeared to be amused. To Armstrong’s credit, he didn’t freeze. Instead, he laughed off the incident as well.

Armstrong joined the ABC News Breakfast team in July as a full-time sports presenter. Taking over from Paul Kennedy.

Since taking on the highly coveted role Armstrong, has been praised for his natural ability. He has also found himself in demand and has appeared on The Project and Mia Freedman’s podcast No Filter.

Armstrong, a proud Barranbinya man is considered a rising star in broadcasting, and somehow this blunder only made him more likeable!
