AUSTRALIAN Prime Minister Julia Gillard has recovered from the salamists sandwich tossers to be affronted by a whole menu of food. On the Reef & Beef menu at a Liberal party fundraiser held at the  Richards and Richards restaurant on March 28 was a fried quail meal consisting of “small breasts, huge thighs and a big red box “.

But the menu was a fake. It wasn’t the official one.

But when the fake menu was tweeted by David Carter @chef09876, the news went global.

When asked for more information, Carter said he has no idea” if the menu was on any tables. You see, he “wasn’t even working there at the time” . His position had been terminated “.

Carter went on the telly:

But the menu wasn’t  real . The owner of the eatery wrote to Mal Brough. Joe Richards said it was meant as private joke. The menu was never distributed at the $1000 a head fundraiser. He wrote:

Dear Mal,

I have been following the rubbish that has been on the news today. I would like to confirm what actually happened: there were never any menus distributed on the tables or in the restaurant. I created a mock menu myself as a light-hearted joke, however as I said I never produced them for public distribution. Unfortunately a staff member saw the mock menu, and unbeknownst to myself, posted it on their facebook. It now appears that a third party for political reasons has distributed it, yet I can reassure you that no such menu was distributed on the night. As you know no one at the dinner was privy to such a menu, and it is so unfortunate that an in-house joke between myself and my son has caused you great problems and embarrassment.
