Hugh Jackman looks like Jackass on Oprah
Faster than you can say “poorly conceived idea,” Hugh Jackman sailed over the Australian Oprahoarde in what this reporter refers to as a “flying fox.” Tragically, the actor slammed into a lighting rig injuring himself. (Then quickly healing himself; his adamantium skeleton was, naturally, unharmed.) The flop was not Jackman’s first in Australia (cf. The film Australia), and it follows in a long tradition of Jackman-ideas that seemed terrible from the beginning. (Notably: Scoop, Viva Laughlin, and Kate & Leopald.)
In this news report that showcases Australian English as naught but a string of idioms, “Eh?,” and nicknames. These reporters (obviously five Fosters to the wind at 7PM) seem only interested in what Oprah gave the crowd, belying their roots of descending from British petty thieves, debtors, and gift bag whores.
