Don't do what I did, it doesn't work.
That's the hard-earned realisation of convicted egg thrower Amber Holt after her ill-judged foray into political posturing turned to curdled custard.
" I don't encourage anyone to follow what I did, it's just caused more drama."
Holt was apologetic for her actions, especially to Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
The Yarrawonga woman, who Albury Local Court heard on Tuesday continued to have the support of her former employer, Albury's Cotton On outlet, conceded she acted hastily, even while backing her base motivations.
"I had approximately 40 minutes to make my decision and I regret it. I'm sorry. I'd just like to apologise to everyone involved."
It wasn't, she said, the political statement she wanted to make, "not at all".
"I just honestly wanted to bring more light to the refugees on Manus Island and how we can have a prime minister that can so easily ... organise concentration camps."
And as for her almost-namesake Will "Egg Boy" Connolly, who cracked his yoke over then senator Fraser Anning, she was adamant.
"He was a juvenile and he didn't assault the prime minister. I'm not even going to compare us."
