Carr's Naked Butlers: Best Cracker of a Joke, Martin Place (14 Sept 2010)




Serving up a cracker

Advertised in Nine-To-Five magazine as:
“Naked Butlers! 14 September, 8:15 am – 10:15 am, Martin Place & Elizabeth Streets, Sydney. Sydney commuters are sure to have an early morning wake up call when butlers in nothing but a black apron covering their crown jewels and a bow tie, will be distributing free Carr’s crackers on silver platters.”

As I arrive at Martin Place at 9:55 am the muscle toned half-naked butlers are still in fine form serving up Carr's crackers to pedestrians walking past outside the Channel 7 News. The Nine-To-Five promotional photo had the guys with no undies behind those black aprons but apparently the police had firm words earlier in the morning to tell them it was illegal. So I guess they needed to cover their cracks up for one of a better word. Promotional flyers were given out advertising the chance to win $5000 by submitting your best joke online and of course to promote Carr's crackers. I tried the Carr's Melts Cheese which were really nice — I'd happily eat them again, very buttery and melt-in-your-mouth.

Q. What's the best way to enjoy a Carr's cracker?
A. One that's served by a Buttler!
