You're not saying anything, Tony!

One Reddit user has immortalised the moment Tony Abbott froze during a series of questions with a tattoo.

Abbott was being interviewed about the death of Lance Corporal Jared MacKinney back in 2011 when he completely froze mid-interview, standing and staring in silence for a good 30 seconds.

Channel 7's Mark Riley then asked him the famous question: "You're not saying anything, Tony?"

The Reddit user sent a photo of the new tattoo to Tony Abbott on Instagram, asking him what he thought.

Then, of course, asked Abbott why he wasn't saying anything.

Maybe he was being given the response he deserved.

The owner of the tattoo told Pedestrian it was pretty impulsive: 

“It was pretty much just something that always made me laugh, so I was walking past the tattoo shop and asked Alex if he wanted to do it he’s done a few others for me,” he said.

“He said yeah it was one of the better ideas he’d heard recently and we did it a couple of days later.”
