Bogans Can Dine On The 'Fat Pizza' Reboot Nobody Asked For

Who on earth thought a Fat Pizza reboot would be a good idea?

Fat Pizza, the cult Aussie bogan show you probably saw on SBS at some point, is coming back to our TV screens after 12 or so years off the air.

No, this is not a joke.

Look, I’m just as confused as you are.

The folks over at Channel Seven clearly know something we don’t because the network in their infinite wisdom has ordered a new season of Fat Pizza, titled Fat Pizza: Back In Business.

Show creator Pauly Fenech issued out a statement alongside the announcement and promising fans there will be “political incorrectness at its best.”

“Fat Pizza is one of the boldest Aussie comedies on television. Get set for bigger and cheesier storylines straight from the headlines. Social media trolls, get ready to rumble!”

There must be something in the water because we keep getting reboots of things no one asked for.

Fat Pizza was definitely a cult show back in the day but I don’t know if I would classify making mean-spirited fun of racial and cultural stereotypes as “bold” comedy.

That sort of stuff might’ve slipped by without much of a whimper during the show’s original 2000-2007 run but good luck trying to sell the same kind of Aussie bogan jokes today without offending people.

And besides, if I wanted to watch a show that revels in punching-down humour and offensive racial stereotypes, I’d just watch whatever rubbish Chris Lilley is pumping out.

“Comedy.”

Fenech will be returning for the reboot alongside classic characters like Mama, Sleek and Bobo, as well as appearances from Housos characters Shazza, Vanessa and Kev the Kiwi.

Interestingly, the show’s original breakout star, Rebel Wilson, is reportedly not involved with the new season. Read into that however you will.

As for when the new season of Fat Pizza will arrive, it will apparently drop later this year on 7Mate but don’t hold your breath. I certainly won’t.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
