Did Scott Morrison Shit Himself At Engadine Maccas In 97? We Investigate

The internet is perhaps filled with filth and muck but there’s absolutely no denying it: Where there’s smoke, there’s hearth. And for these of you absolutely plugged into the horrible Twitter web site, one notably pongy assertion has been circling the drain for days now: That Prime Minister Scott Morrison, in the hours after the Cronulla Sharks lost the 1997 Grand Last, wantonly and violently shit his pants on the Engadine Maccas.

Ridiculous? Perhaps at first. However after we begun pulling the thread, the shit turned far runnier than we might’ve imagined. Being the responsible media outlet that we are, we investigated.

Swipe to shut

Like with all widely-spread allegations/cheeks, it’s essential to zero in on the central dot. In this case, the origin of the story.

On August 24th of last yr, Scott Morrison turned the Prime Minister of Australia following a bitter Liberal Celebration leadership spill. That very same afternoon, Sydney-based hip hop artist Joyride broke wind on the dack shatting yarn.

This, by all accounts, seems to be the first appearance of the hearsay on social media. The rumour that Scott Morrison absolutely loaded his pants up at Engadine Maccas after Cronulla lost the Grand Ultimate in 1997.

At the time, Joyride offered additional detail: That the amount of shit allegedly funnelled by Morrison into his personal pants was giant, and that the story had been verified by an unnamed good friend who labored there.

Pretty dangerous I heard. My mate was working there on the time.

— ???????????????????????????? ~ ???????????????????????????? ???????????????????????? (@donjoyride) August 24, 2018

The story subsequently passed into oblivion, wafting into the breeze very similar to anything posted to Twitter. Nevertheless over the past handful of days, for reasons we will’t absolutely explain, it has resurfaced.

Ever since Morrison’s poorly-received interview with Waleed Aly on The Challenge, the rumour – that he shidded himself at Engadine Maccas in 1997 – has floated back to the floor.

This time, it caught hearth.

Google developments knowledge exhibits an enormous and sustained spike in searches for the term “Engadine Maccas” from March 21st onwards.

That renewed interest has been fuelled largely by social media, which has been awash with individuals asserting the rumour is true.

Correction, it was after they misplaced the grand remaining

Engadine Maccas, 1997. It started there.

— Adam Collins (@collinsadam) March 26, 2019

Very similar to the alleged shit, it goes on and on and on and on.

The story, it must be noted, is unverifiable: Morrison’s workplace is unlikely to provide the time of day to it, and Joyride refuses to delve any deeper into the matter.

What’s much more fascinating to research, nevertheless, is whether it’s potential that Morrison fired turds into his underwear at the Engadine Maccas in 1997.

Now there’s some conjecture over whether or not the incident occurred following the Sharks Grand Remaining loss to Brisbane, or whether or not it occurred the week prior following their Preliminary Ultimate victory over Canberra.

The latter appears slightly extra plausible; that match was held at Shark Park, a mere 25-minute drive from the now notorious Engadine Maccas.

In fact it’s additionally fairly attainable Morrison was attending a Grand Last Day perform at Sharks League Membership as nicely, which would additionally put him within shitting distance of Engadine after the 1997 season decider.

Might Morrison have made a mad sprint away from an enormous Sharkies remaining or perform only to seek out himself caught brief mere metres from the salvation of an Engadine Maccas lavatory? We definitely can’t rule that out at this stage.

But the question of why Engadine is rightfully on the lips of younger and previous alike. Why that location, when there are a number of McDonald’s retailers far nearer to Cronulla’s house turf?

what completely nobody can explain is there are three Maccas near Shark Park – Kirrawee, Caringbah & Taren Level – why not there? It does not make any sense

— Engadine Maccas Employee of the Yr 1997 (@BennCC8) March 26, 2019

It’s a fair point, and a well-made one at that. Nevertheless that’s a question that was shortly answered by Twitter’s collective hive thoughts.

engadine maccas is a standard place to stop for a fast shart on the journey between sydney and wollongong. he is not incorrect for doing it

— Eleanor Robertson (@marrowing) March 26, 2019

Might Scott Morrison have farded and shidded his pantaloons at Engadine Maccas whereas making a quick exit from Shark Park again to Canberra? Geographically, it is sensible. The celebs – or sharts – seem to be aligning.

Nevertheless one other truthful level raised within the ensuing shit storm posits that Morrison was intentionally concentrating on that very specific Maccas for the needs of snapping one off in his jocks, given the situation’s proximity to different suitably applicable places.

okay right here’s some plot thickener for you: ScoMo was undoubtedly driving on the Princess Hwy to get back to CNB. The final turnoff to get to Engadine Maccas takes him DIRECTLY previous Engadine KFC. Assuming he was dying for a turd, why not cease there?? He *focused* This Maccas. pic.twitter.com/1gCG7nd717

— Cask Wine Of Amontillado (@SlayerRules_420) March 25, 2019

Whereas it’s nigh-on unimaginable to determine in 1997 phrases, it’s value noting that Engadine Maccas is presently open 24/7, while KFC Engadine closes at 11pm on Saturdays. Assuming the Sharks recreation ended at round 10pm, and permitting 30 minutes to rejoice, exit the stadium, and get to a automotive, that leaves round 30 minutes to get from Shark Park to Engadine, which means there’s a great probability the KFC might have been closed at the point Morrison arrived, batter on deck. Or at the very least they might not have been receptive to last-minute rest room loiterers.

In this occasion, we will safely rule in Morrison’s favour: The highly alleged shit was probably neither targeted, nor malicious of intent.

That aside, the incident seems to have haunted the situation; a cursory take a look at the Engadine Maccas Google evaluations reveals a telling widespread theme.

While it could possibly be fairly straightforward handy wave all of this away as the inane nattering of a brain-poisoned few on Twitter, local anecdotal evidence remains ever present; proof that means not only did Scott Morrison actually fucken shit himself at Engadine Maccas in 1997, however that locals in the area have recognized about it for years.

???????????? That is pretty much how I heard it on the time – I lived at Engadine back then, and it was no secret

— Chris Finch (@ChrisFi78250835) March 26, 2019

So what conclusion can we draw from all of this?

Based mostly on all proof obtainable to us, it is absolutely potential for the now-Prime Minister to have shit the crotch out of his dacks on the Engadine Maccas. His noted help of the Cronulla Sharks provides him probable trigger to have been within the area on the day in question. And the potential motive for shitting oneself on accident at aforementioned Maccas (too many schooeys) is thick in the air.

However the bottom line here is that, despite the prevalence of the story over the past few days, Morrison and his workforce are yet to remark or face questioning on the matter.

And that, just like the alleged skid marks in his alleged dacks, is probably most telling of all.

CONCLUSION: Inconclusive.
