Kevin Rudd has confirmed his intention to challenge for the leadership of ABC4Kids television program, the Octonauts.
“Rightly or wrongly, Captain Barnacles has lost the faith of the Australian people,” said Rudd.
Pointing to his strong commitment to the environment, Rudd said that he was the cartoon character best placed to explore! rescue! and protect! the world.
“As everyone knows, the Octonauts go from one disaster to another. This needs to stop.”
“That’s why I’m putting my hat into the ring for the Octonauts leadership. It will be a tough contest but I’m ready for it.”
Sources within the Octopod indicate that Rudd has secured the support of Kwazii Kitten and several discontented Vegimals.
Backers of Captain Barnacles maintain, however, that the majority of the Octonauts crew are behind their current leader.
According to Tweak Bunny: “Sure, Kevin can talk underwater but the only thing he wants to save is himself.”
