Man admits he made up the rumour about Scott Morrison pooing himself at Engadine McDonald’s

Aussies love a good prank.
One such joke is convincing tourists to be wary of drop bears if they're ever hiking in the wilderness and their reaction is always priceless.
However, there has been one prank that has been spreading around Australia for years and it was a cracker.
This one is far more grim. Far more serious.
It involves former Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

He's also known as the Minister of Magic because, with a wave of his hand, he damn well appointed himself the secret minister of every bloody cabinet possible during the Covid-19 lockdown in what was a massive abuse of parliamentary power.
But we digress.
Morrison is probably the biggest fan of NRL team the Cronulla Sharks to ever walk the Earth.
And, for what feels like forever, folk all over this great southern land, a nation girt by sea, have known the story about what he allegedly did in 1997.
As per the urban legend, Morrison crapped his daks at Engadine McDonald's after the Sharks lost the NRL Grand Final.
But a horrendous fact has recently come to light about Australia's former Prime Minister losing control of his bowels at a McDonald's 33 kilometres south of Sydney.
The fact of the matter is, some bloke made it all up.
We're spewing as it was a bloody chef's kiss of a rumour that seemed to get better with every retelling.
The rumour was started by Sydney-based hip-hop musician Joyride, real name Rowan Dix, who tweeted the hot piece of goss back in 2018.
"Scott Morrison shat himself at Engadine McDonalds after the Sharks lost the GF in '97," he wrote in August that year.
"Pretty bad I heard. My mate was working there at the time.”
Now, Joyride has gone on the record and admitted he made the whole thing up. Yep, it's nothing but a massive porkie pie.
"The intention was never for it to be a rumour, it was just s**tposting," he told the Hello Sport podcast.
Joyride continued: "The whole thing was just like, yeah, he’s such a Sharks fan that he went to the Super League Final where they played the Broncos and lost, and he got so blind that he shat himself at a Macca’s."
Boo. Hiss. This is the worst reveal of the truth since, well, ever.
Anyway, the rumour became so widespread that it turned to myth.
And what happens to myths? They become legends.
There's even a gold plaque - which is now a plaque of lies - at Engadine Macca's that commemorates where Morrison s**t his pants back in '97.

It became such a stinker of a myth that even Morrison himself poo-pooed the story on The Kyle and Jackie O show in 2021.
"It is the biggest urban myth ever. It is complete and utter rubbish," he said.
Morrison added: "I found the whole thing incredibly amusing, I always joke about it … it is absolute and total rubbish."
Yeah, right. As if he really found that funny.
Anyway, the worst news of the day is now done. Go, enjoy your lives, we guess.
If there's even any point now the truth is out.
