Ew! Watch Australian Prime Minister Eat a Raw Onion Like an Apple!

Tony Abbott, the right-wing Prime Minister of Australia, is an all-round tough dude.

A surfer who once famously promised to “shirtfront” (American English translation = aggressively confront) Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin over the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, Abbott’s got a reputation as a hard ass.

So hard, in fact, that he eats onions like apples. Raw. And with the skin on. Cause that’s what we all do, right?!

Take a look at the video below, taken while Abbott was touring a farm in Tasmania:

Let’s just hope someone offered him a breath mint after he was done eating.
