Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald has made an emotional plea to Bunnys to reverse his iconic sausage sizzles.
The Nova star penned an open letter to the hardware chain. It's abolish.
Bunnings chief operating officer Debbie Poole explained that the policy change to news.com.au yesterday.
"Safety is always our number one priority," she said.
But Fitzy made it clear on the air this morning that he does not care if people slip on an onion, and demanded the store go back to serve on the snacks, like the good old days.
Here's the open letter to read the radio star Nova:
"To whom it may concern,
"I'm writing on the behalf of the millions of Aussies who flood through your door every day to pick up some extra wire for the whipper sniper and mysteriously leave with a hedger, we do not even need.
"We trust in you every day to drain our credit balance; now it's your turn to trust us.
"A vital staple in the Australian diet is a snack on some fresh white bread, with a sprinkling of burnt, caramelised onion on a dollop of sauce. For some reason that is basic, yet effective, recipe tastes better at your stores.
"You are known for it. It's a great place to stay. It's a great place to stay. Miter 10 and Masters (RIP, still waiting for a sale).
"So, why would you enter the idea of bowing down to bureaucrats and safety officers to change the order of a recipe that does not need to be fixed?
"I do not care if people slip on an onion; I'd love to slip on an onion. If our former Prime Minister Tony Abbott can chomp down on a raw onion, why can not I tear a hamstring on some succulent, caramelised onion that has fallen off some hardworking Aussie's sanga?
"This is your turn to fight, Bunnings, to say no to the naysayers and represent the great nation that represents your share prices. This is your turn to look them in the eye and say, 'Onion bike!' '
Fitzy's co-host, Michael 'Wippa' Wipfli, seemingly supported his mate's rant right up until the final pun.
"You were doing so well," Wippa said disappointingly.
Fitzy is not the only high-profile Aussie Today show co-host Karl Stefanovic claiming the snag policy will "ruin Australia".
"Bunnings, you've done a lot of things right. But, I'm sorry, you've got this one wrong. You do not mess with perfection, "the Channel 9 presenter said.
