Australians are one-of-a-kind. The Australian sense of humour is one of our most enduring characteristics, and Andrew Morrison has proven that once more.
The Darwin lad was one of three Aussies injured in the atrocious terrorist attack that killed seven people over the weekend.
He was literally stabbed in the neck, but in the classic Australian tradition was completely chill about the whole thing.
I guess that’s what happens when you grow up with crocodiles for neighbours.
“So I’m at Belushi’s, watched Champions League – 4-1 Madrid, happy days,” he says. “I came outside, walked across the road and a fight breaks out. I’m like, ‘Shit, what’s going on here?’
“I start to walk towards it, and all of a sudden a guy comes up with a knife and I’m like this. He stabs me there, and I just like push him off – blood’s going everywhere. I walk into a pub and say, ‘Someone help me, I’ve just been stabbed’.
“He got me. I dodged it, I ducked and weaved – nah, just kidding. I got fucked up, man. This is my last night in London and I’m supposed to fly back tomorrow!”
Instant national treasure.
