If there weren’t enough reasons to love Tony Armstrong, he has provided us with another reason to smile – a live on-air “Bulging Dick” comment which left his co-hosts (and the rest of Australia) in hysterics.
While talking about Tim Paine the captain of the Australian Cricket team and his upcoming neck surgery, Armstrong misspoke and said, “Paine has a bulging dick that has… bulging disc that has been causing him pain”.
It’s not uncommon for TV reporters to slip-up when live, and we love Tony for his ability to brush past being embarrassed and see the instant fun to be had with his mistake. When host Michael Rowland asked to move to weatherman Nate Byrne, Byrne said, “Why me? Don’t bring me into this! Is my mic working? I hope not”.
