Scott Morrison Finally Addresses Infamous Rumour About What Happened At Engadine Macca's In 1997
Politics can sometimes be dry and boring as MPs argue over things that might seem irrelevant.
However, every now and then, there is a story that captures the attention of people across the country.
There have been plenty of scandals that have rocked Australian politics over the years, however Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been dogged by a rumour that has persisted for more than two decades.
The rumour (and can we stress that this is simply a rumour on the grapevine that seems to have taken on a life of its own) goes that ScoMo was at a McDonald's in Engadine, Sydney in 1997 after the Cronulla Sharks lost the NRL Grand Final.
It was at this very place that the rumour states Mr Morrison pooed his pants.
Now, why that happened is beyond us but that's where the rumour has sat ever since and the Prime Minister has refused to speak about it publicly...until now.
As politicians gathered together in Canberra for the Midwinter Ball, Mr Morrison gave a speech that some thought was going to be typically Prime Ministerial.

However, ScoMo chucked in a few jokes here and then and then gave the crowd this little nugget: "What really happened at the Engadine McDonald's in 1997? It will remain the mystery of the ages."
While it might not be the answer people were hoping for, it's something.
One of the reasons maybe why Mr Morrison didn't go into the rumour further was because this year's Midwinter Ball was the first one where speeches were on the record, meaning anything that was said could be plastered across news media forever.
It wasn't the only mention of Engadine during the evening, with Opposition leader Anthony Albanese saying the Sutherland shire stretches 'from the golden sands of Cronulla to the golden arches of Engadine'.
Interestingly, this whole thing could just be a massive wind up and not be true at all. It could be rolled out at whim in order to distract from something else happening right under our noses and we'd all lap it up.
Guess we'll never know.
But that hasn't stopped the rumour from becoming its own beast on social media.
Chinese whispers taught us that something small can turn into something very, very large and it doesn't look like this Engadine Macca's incident from 1997 will be going away any time soon, unless ScoMo wants to give us more information.
