    Peter Dutton speaks about that viral dagwood dog photo!

    Today on Sydney’s 104.1 2Day FM’s breakfast show, Hughesy, Ed & Erin, Opposition leader Peter Dutton joined the show to talk about that viral dagwood dog photo from his visit to Brisbane Ekka!

    Hughesy confronted Peter Dutton over how he eats a dagwood dog!

    “With the cameras there, I mean you can’t eat it from the side because the sauce drips off like Bill Shorten, so it leaves one angle and it’s not a great one.”

    “I went to the showbag stand and bought a Milky Way show bag along with a Bertie Beetle bag as well and next thing I’m accused of trying to portray an image of Kevin Rudd when he was known as Milky Bar Kid.”

    “Most of my mates actually were pretty rapid-fire texting me like, ‘WTF’, but anyway, what do you do.”
