Mayor channels South Park in garden gaffe
FRASER Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell had a South Park moment today.
Speaking at the official opening of the new Chinese Gardens in Urangan, Cr O'Connell unwittingly echoed an ongoing joke in the popular, politically incorrect cartoon.
Speaking about the importance of the Fraser Coast's relationship with Leshan in China, Cr O'Connell referred to it as our "sister shitty" to the great amusement of the dozens of people present at the garden.
The mayor was able to recover well, laughing it off and commenting "that's hard to say, isn't it?"
In South Park, the Chinese restaurant is called City Wok, but due to an accent difficulty of one of the characters, it is more commonly known by a far more unfortunate name.
