The Internet Reacts To That Video Of Tony Abbott Eating A Raw Onion

Overnight, Prime Minister Tony Abbott gave the internet the precious gift of the following video, which, in case you missed it, is him eating a raw onion, skin and all, during a visit to a Tasmanian produce farm.

Yup, just a normal dude doing a normal thing. The PM picked it up and bit into it without shedding a single tear, commenting that it was “better than any other onions I’ve eaten in a long time.”
David Addison, the owner of Charlton Farm Produce, was understandably fairly taken aback.

“I may have said ‘it’s a shame they weren’t peeled’ and he just started eating it,” he told media.

“It was just spontaneous and there weren’t even any tears.”

Twitter was never going to let such an easy target go:

This has been another day on the internet.
