Say, what?


Wednesday, October 31, 2007


It seems an ear-wax eating incident is a bitter pill to swallow for Australia's opposition leader, Kevin Rudd, who is likely to become the country's next prime minister.

Rudd was caught on video tape nearly six years ago when he sat in the House Representatives as a junior Labor Party lawmaker, absent-mindedly probing his ear and then placing the same finger in his mouth. He previously has told journalists that he was just scratching his chin.

The embarrassing footage now has come back to haunt him on YouTube. It recently also was featured on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Rudd's antics, which he said he wishes were "more ideal," haven't hurt his popularity, though. He leads Prime Minister John Howard in opinion polls ahead of Nov. 24 elections.

Nice to have such loyal ear-wax-eating supporters. What's next, Bush booger-eaters?
