C.O. presents an EXCLUSIVE interview with Patrick, Australia’s #1 Wombat!
Patrick- tell us about your daily routine. What’s your day like?
“Being the Godfather of the Wombats, I have to keep myself in great shape so I eat plenty of fresh greens and loads of carrots and eat my daily grains. I’m not too keen on exercise so I get pushed about in a wheelbarrow alot of the time.”
Who do you like to hang with?
“My neighbours are a fab family of Wombats which include a Mamma, a Dadda and a wee baby Wom. The kid often looks to me for Wombie Advice, which I always say ‘be nice to visitors…don’t bite! And dig really big holes so the keepers have something to do….we have to keep them in a job!'”
Big famous guy like you- bet you get tons of fan mail. Do you have a girlfriend?
“Being the Wombassador of Ballarat I have a busy schedule saying hi to visitors and often meeting VIP’S, which includes Nicholas Cage, Kirstie Alley, Jerry Lewis and most recently Phil Ligget. I have been on TV lots too, so I don’t have time for a girlfriend.”
Did you ever get to meet the late legendary Steve Irwin?
“I never personally met Steve Irwin, however my Dad, Greg Parker who owns the park knew him.”
Anything else you’d like to mention?
“I will be 30 in August and I am looking forward to the celebrations. Big Bucky Tooth kisses XOXOXO to all my fans! I’m off for a snooze now, as I have to keep up on my beauty sleep!”
Special thanks to Patrick’s pals Julia L. and Jared M.
