After several long years, Seven Sharp host Mike Hosking has finally finished adjusting his sleeves, feeling he’s got them “just right” for the moment.
Last night on the show, Hosking suddenly interrupted a segment about children making their own toys out of peanut butter to tell co-host Toni Street about his momentous accomplishment.
“Hold it there,” he said. “I’m sorry, I can’t allow this to go on. Can we stop this segment? Have we stopped it? Good. Okay, I did it.”
“You did what?” asked Street.
“I got it.”
There was silence.
“The sleeves, Toni,” he clarified. “I think I’ve got my sleeves right.”
“Oh,” replied Street, as a producer quietly asked if they should resume playing the peanut butter segment. “Is that important?”
“Of course it’s important, they said I couldn’t do it.”
“Who said you couldn’t do it?”
“The fitters, at the shop, when I bought the wrong size.”
It was a long time coming for Hosking, whose last successful sleeve adjustment was ruined after he brushed past Peter Williams in the hallway mere minutes later.
“This is why I’m number one and your career is over,” Hosking told him at the time.
Now that Hosking has finished adjusting his sleeves, he will spend the next several years undoing and redoing his belt on a different notch.
