Radio commentator Alan Jones will be off air for several weeks as he undergoes back surgery. Mr Jones will be undergoing a spine transplant and surprisingly will be receiving his new spine from NSW Premier Mike Baird.
The news came as a shock to most people, as they assumed Premier Baird did not have a spine.
Speaking to The (un)Australian, Alan Jones explained the surgery, saying: “I’m not as young as I used to be and parts of me are starting to wear thin, like my appeal and my spine. So when the Dr said Alan you need a new spine I called Mike Baird and asked for his, it’s not like he needs it anyway.”
When reached for comment, NSW Premier Mike Baird said: “As Premier I am here for all citizens especially the important ones like Mr Jones, so when he said I need a spine I said here take mine, it’s never been used.
“And when Mr Packer rings asking for a kidney or a new casino I will also be generous and deliver them both to him.”
