Scott Morrison buys inflatable shark from Bunnings

Scott Morrison has gotten himself a Christmas gift that left his followers in stitches and his wife slightly less amused.

The Prime Minister invested in an inflatable toy depicting Santa Claus riding a shark from Bunnings Warehouse, which he proudly showed off on social media.

“It’s here. Jen’s not so impressed,” the Prime Minister captioned a picture of himself, in casual wear and pointing to the box.

The Prime Minister’s wife, Jenny, is standing by looking less than delighted.

The Saturday afternoon post was a follow-up to another earlier this month, where Mr Morrison first announced the shark toy had come to his attention.

“Totally on this year’s Christmas list. Will be going to Bunnings,” the Prime Minister wrote in the caption to a picture of the shark fully inflated and propped up on a Bunnings shelf.

The Prime Minister, a keen Cronulla Sharks fan, sees the shark toy as an opportunity to represent his home district’s rugby league team.

The more recent Facebook post garnered thousands of comments from the Prime Minister’s supporters, many of whom said they appreciated the lighthearted touch.

“Love it, good to see a bit of a smile and sense of humour in these trying times,” one person wrote.

The $129 toy is 2.7 metres long and 1.6 metres high when inflated.

“Add some fun to your home this Xmas with this giant 2.7m inflatable Santa on a shark. With 15 super bright LEDs this inflatable will surely add a touch of festive charm to your home. Simply plug in and watch him inflate in minutes,” the product description reads.
