Do you know what’s not unlawful?
Going for a run and eating a kebab!
The phrase was coined by Premier Mark McGowan during the peak of WA’s social distancing restrictions. In a press conference in April, the Premier was being quizzed on what social activities would get a person in trouble.
A journalist asked Mark for his opinion on a NSW man who was fined $1,000 for eating a kebab on a park bench while he was “on a run”. Struggling to contain his giggles Mark deemed there was “nothing unlawful about going for a run and eating a kebab”.
Emma Buswell, a Fremantle artist, was so inspired by the phrase she felt she had to immortalise it in a knitted jumper. Emma made a limited run and sold them for $100 before they sold out. One jumper was even purchased by the Art Gallery of WA to be put on display!
Mike from The Brekky Show thought these were so cool, he decided he wanted one too!
“I could have my own t-shirts with ‘how hard could it be?’ on them! The Family would wear those, right?”
