Queensland's Deputy Premier has been forced to explain himself after a speech he gave in front of Labor voters sounded like he said something very naughty.
While slagging off Scott Morrison and praising Opposition leader Anthony Albanese, Steven Miles said he stuttered over the worst possible word.
During his speech at to marchers at Monday's Labour Day rally in Brisbane, the deputy leader said: "Scott Morrison's in town, he's holding $5,000 a seat fundraisers. Think about that will you.
"Albo's (Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese) here with us at Labour Day while Scott Morrison's charging 5,000 bucks a head to have dinner with him.
"What a con...contrast."
Out of everything he could have possible stuttered over, the word contrast is probably the worst one.
Many people thought he was intentionally calling the Prime Minister a c***, however the Deputy Premier has hit back at that suggestion.
"What I said I want to be very, very clear that I was using the word contrast, the word contrast," he said at a press conference.
"Whatever I think of the Prime Minister, I would never ever use...language like that so I want to be very clear contrast was the word I was using.
"I understand that was a slight stutter and people might have misheard me but it certainly wasn't my intention."
When he was asked about why the crowd reacted with such enjoyment, Mr Miles said he isn't responsible for their excitement.
"It was not my intention in any way, and I want to rule that out as clearly as I possibly can," he said.
It's not the first time a politician has accidentally or nearly dropped the C-bomb during a press conference or in front of a big crowd.
The Australian Prime Minister was updating reporters on the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine last month and during the presser, the PM was referring to Australia's Health Minister Greg Hunt.
Anyone who is aware of the dangers of a last name like Hunt will know that you need to say it very clearly and not have anything else on your mind.
Not that we're saying Mr Morrison was distracted, however during this particular mention of Mr Hunt's last name, it started with a C instead of an H before he quickly corrected himself.
While it was less than a second, it wasn't long before the moment was picked up by people on social media and it has since gone viral.
Hundreds of people have liked a post on Reddit that captured the Freudian slip, with one person commenting: "The most Aussie thing Scott Morrison has ever said and it was an accident."
Another person addd: "I can't wait for the get on the beers remix of this."
A third wrote: "At least he's referring to Liberal minsters by the correct term."
