Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has had another sandwich thrown at her during a school visit.

Gillard was greeting children at Lyneham High School in Canberra on Thursday when someone aimed the salami at her.

Photos showed the sandwich bypassing her left arm and lying on the ground in front of her as she shook hands with a crowd of students.

Gillard appeared unfazed by the prank, commenting afterwards: "They must have thought I was hungry".

An adviser to the PM said that Gillard was not even aware of the sandwich throwing until someone pointed it out to her afterwards.

Just thought this was funny and worth a post.

If someone had thrown a hotdog at Obama, he would have snatched it from the air like Derek Jeter fielding a line drive, and made short work of it.

That's exactly what an Aussie would say.
