Images of Peter Dutton attending a Meet and Greet event at the Sydney leg of the American Chopper Show in 2005 have emerged today with the Defence Minister telling reporters today in Brisbane that they’re fakes.
Mr Dutton explained that he did not attend the show, where VIP tickets to meet the stars of the show retailed at $1890, because he thinks the show is “fucking lame” because he finds custom motorcycle culture “repugnant”.
“I have seen the images and they’re obviously not real,” he told The Advocate.
“From what I remember, American Chopper was just that Poor Man’s Merv Hughes engaging in arguments with his two fat sons. The real fat ass was the more useless one and the other chode was the father’s main target for abuse,”
“I just want to put on the record that I do not like American Chopper. I never have and I never will. I certainly would not spend close to two thousand dollars to meet those mouth-breathing motorbike riders,”
“From what my office is able to ascertain, we are also victim of the same smear campaign that is currently set on Prime Minister Scott Morrison. However, I feel that me being accused of paying $2000 to meet those fat pieces of shit is much worse than Scott being accused of racism,”
“It’s so shameful. For me, that is.”
However, The Advocate has consulted an image specialist at the South Betoota Polytechnic School of Art, who was able to all but declare the image is authentic.
They spoke to our reporter on the condition of anonymity.
“I mean, it’s weird that he would lie about loving American Chopper,” they said.
“It’s not the worst show in the world and some of what they do is actually really creative and cool. Anyway, make of it what you will.”
More to come.
