What is it with Australians and flirting with danger? It probably just comes easy when living in a country where every second animal wants to kill you. One Aussie maddog has taken things a step further - entering foreplay with danger - by shamelessly devouring raw chicken in a public mall.
The bare-footed bloke blatantly disregards his immune system and any social judgement by carrying a tray of uncooked chicken drumsticks while on an escalator in Adelaide’s Westfield Marion.
The Instagram page @shitadelaide posted the photos, alongside the caption: “A nutritious and delicious lunch of fashionably rare chicken at Westfield Marion #paleo #cavemandiet #shredding.”
I was having a light brekkie while writing this and instantly regretted the timing of my meal. Lucky for me though, the comments on the post are top-tier and provided a pleasant distraction from the salmonella death-wish pics.
“This king is so busy hustling he doesn’t have time to waste sitting down to eat, or putting shoes on, or cooking his food,” one commenter said. “Few understand this grindset.”
“He’s so cooked, the chicken gets charred on the way down,” another one wrote.
“He wants a week off work,” a third added.
“What an absolute savage,” one more said. “Starts from the middle of the pack instead of working from left to right.”
He’s also wearing a singlet with Nike’s ‘Just Do It’ on it. I doubt this is what the company was meaning when they came up with the slogan but at least old mate is taking the advice - we can count that as a positive from this right?
This bloke reminds me of a different kind of chicken-consuming-maddog, an insanely chill one. In 2021 CCTV footage captured a man being robbed at gunpoint while munching on some (cooked) chicken.
Choosing to not let a pesky gun get in the way of a good meal, the bloke simply handed over his phone and continued eating his food, barely looking at the robber.
