sizzling saturday bunnings fans celebrate the return of the beloved sausage sanger

Hundreds of hungry Australians flocked to Bunnings on Saturday as it relaunched the famed sausage sizzle.

The iconic snack made a much-celebrated return to select stores in Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia on Saturday.   

Though many people saw the sausage sizzle’s return as a sign that things are returning to normal, Bunnings made sure to implement several new safety measures to curb the spread of COVID-19

This comes after the delicious shopping snack returned to Tasmania and the Northern Territory in early July.

Bunnings separated ordering and pick-up points to allow for 1.5m physical distancing and increased cleaning processes and hygiene requirements. 

They rostered on additional team members to encourage physical distancing and increased signage to guide customers to the delicious sausage sizzle. 

Hungry Bunnings’ shoppers followed the new safety measures and posted pictures online of themselves enjoying a sausage sandwich on the weekend. 

A woman said on Instagram: ‘Dear Bunnings’ sausage sizzle. Thank you for returning after all this time.’

‘Your absence has been felt. I will enjoy you even more.’

‘The Bunnings snags have returned, the earth is healing,’ a man said on Twitter with a picture of a half-eaten sausage sandwich. 

A woman from South Australia said: ‘Bunnings sausage sizzles started up again in my state today. If you’re Australian, you get it.’ 

‘Bunnings snags are back. The best stuff,’ a Queensland man said.

Bunnings Chief Operating Officer, Deb Poole, said she was excited to bring back the sausage sizzle to select stores. 

‘We know community groups and customers in other states are just as keen to see them return, so we’re really excited to be bringing them back to Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia this weekend,’ Ms Poole said. 

‘While our community groups are taking a number of extra precautions, what hasn’t changed is the great feeling of supporting a local community group and the unmistakable taste of an Aussie sausage sizzle.’ 

Bunnings suspended community sausage sizzles in March due to COVID-19. 

For community groups that were booked over the following month, Bunnings donated $500 gift cards to these local organisations to assist with their fundraising activities. 

Community groups who had sausage sizzles pre-booked during the lockdown are being prioritised for the restart with around two hundred groups booked for this weekend in QLD, SA and WA. 

Bunnings is also planning for the return of sausage sizzles in NSW and the ACT and said they will continue to consult with government, team members and community groups and continue to follow the latest health advice. 

This comes after the delicious past-time returned to Tasmania and the Northern Territory in early July

Coronavirus: ‘Bunnings Karen’ puts ‘spell’ on Daniel Andrews

coronavirus bunnings karen puts spell on daniel andrews

A coronavirus denier and self-described ‘psychic’ who slammed Daniel Andrews for his lockdown measures has cast a spell to remove him as Victorian premier.   

Lizzy Rose, dubbed ‘Bunnings Karen’, made headlines last month when she filmed herself clashing with staff at the hardware giant over mandatory face masks. 

Ms Rose, who uses her social media platform to spread dangerous conspiracy theories, shared a video of her performing a ‘vaccination burn’ to cast out the Victorian government, as well as mandatory jabs and face masks. 

‘Cast you and your agenda out. We say no to mandatory vaccinations against our will,’ she said in the footage posted on Sunday.

‘We burn away your evil agenda. We, the awakened people, say no to mandatory vaccinations. We cast you out.’

Ms Rose, who wore a black dress during the bizarre performance, was seen bent over a large black cauldron with a lit match held over a needle.

She chanted: ‘We cast out your evil agenda of cruelty, deception and control.

‘You are to leave government, you are to walk away from your power and your position for we cast you out.

‘Hail and farewell Daniel Andrews and blessed be.’

The anti-masker dramatically threw the match and needle into the cauldron and raised her arms into the air.

She then called for rain and ‘the heavens to open and bear down on us’.

‘Cleanse this government and all its ill will. Banish from state, territory, capital and the hill. Guardians of day and guardians of night,’ Ms Rose continued.

‘Great Mother Earth, in this cauldron of bounty, punish them, make them accountable by law, by honour. Make them hear and make them see and free our people.’

Ms Rose concluded by asking for restrictions, including mandatory masks, to be lifted and for the economy to be reopened.  

The self-proclaimed ‘witch’ uses her social media channels to encourage Victorians to stop wearing face masks. She has also filmed herself burning disposable face masks.

From 11.59pm on August 2, all Victorians have been required to wear a face covering when leaving their homes. Those who fail to follow the rule without a medical exemption can be fined $200.  

Despite stage four lockdown in Melbourne, Ms Rose has also bragged about breaking the restrictions to go for two-hour walks outside her 5km radius.

Ms Rose famously recorded herself inside the Bunnings store in Maribyrnong, in Melbourne’s west, where she planned to buy plant pots and items for her ‘Viking fire pit’.

Armed with a medical certificate exempting her from wearing the mandatory masks, she fronted confused staff members.

‘I went shopping in my local Bunnings where I’ve spent thousands of dollars over nearly 18 years and was rudely illegally denied customer service due to not wearing a facial mask, despite the fact that I produced a legal medical certificate of exemption,’ she posted after the stunt.

‘Management called the police, stating to police that my exemption was ‘bogus’ which is completely untrue.

‘This is absolutely disgusting treatment of a customer and a direct contradiction to Mr Daniel Andrews, the premier of Victoria’s, instructions stating that no person with a medical exemption is to be refused service, goods or products.’

The video showed Ms Rose referring to masked customers as ‘zombies’ as she walked without a mask through the aisles.

‘People are so very silly,’ she said. ‘And they’re so silly and it’s so very sad that they’re not evolved enough to see.’

Ms Rose then argued with a checkout operator before turning the video off.

bizarre optical illusion makes people look like shadows on sand

Amazing footage captured by a drone shows beach volleyball players looking like shadows in the sand thanks to an optical illusion. 

Professional photographer Kyle Huber, 32, captured the stunning footage at the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

The video shows 12 people playing volleyball on the sand, but with the top-down perspective made them look like long shadows.

As the drove hovered above, the optical illusion made their real bodies hard to spot as they hit the ball across the net. 

In the late afternoon sun the shadows appear to be the ones playing as they competitively pass the ball around. 

The amazing video looks like something from a computer game as the players run around on the sand.

The multi-million dollar win comes after a man from Liverpool in Sydney’s south-west took home $20million in the Powerball draw on July 30. 

The lucky winner said he would buy his parents a house and travel overseas when the coronavirus crisis settles. 

‘I can’t travel at the moment, but as soon as I can, I will be straight on a plane to Las Vegas!’ he said. 

‘There will be a few little splurges when I first get the money. I want to buy a ski boat and there will be a new car.

‘I have to spoil myself a little.’ 

The man said he was in ‘total shock’ after seeing the $20million in his online account.

‘My heart was racing. I was shaking!’ he said.

‘This changes everything for me and for my whole family!’ 

The Oz Lotto jackpot has jumped from $5million to $10million after it failed to go off on Tuesday. 

A Brisbane couple woke up almost $6million richer after holding one of two division one winning entries in the Oz Lotto draw on July 28.
