Australia’s election became a little more raucous on Tuesday when a protestor tried -- but failed -- to crack an egg on Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s head.   
 
The attacker’s egg, thrown from close range, appeared to bounce off the politician at a Country Women’s Association event in New South Wales, where Morrison was campaigning ahead of May 18 general elections.   
 
The woman was wrestled away by Morrison’s close protection security detail and could later be seen leaving the venue holding an egg carton.   
 
New South Wales police said they had taken a “25-year-old woman into custody following an incident involving the Prime Minister in Albury”.  Morrison seized on the incident to attack his political detractors.   
 
Opposition Labour party leader Bill Shorten, tipped to take over the Prime Minister’s job, called the assault “appalling and disgraceful”.
