Look, for the most part, Australia’s annual war against the sun is over. Excluding some bizarre record-breaking highs that have been lingering around of late, the country is most definitely cooling down again. That means the ‘Strayan people shouldn’t be required to give a huge amount of thought to icy poles – at least for another nine months or so.
Yet, just as the fickle mistress Autumn rears her breezy head, one Redditor decided to introduce the Australian board to a fundamental shift in the way we eat our frozen treats. Behold: the icy pole “stubbie holder.”
Sage wisdom on devouring a good ol’ pole without one of those bad boys has been passed down from generation to generation, and it’s now been spouted by adults on a real internet forum:
There you have it, folks. Forget conflict Middle East, forget the provocations of North Korea. If shit goes down, remember this day: the day Australia began tearing itself apart over tubes of frozen sugar syrup.
At least it beats eating them when they’re entirely melted, right?
