CANBERRA - Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has had another sandwich thrown at her as she was visiting Lyneham High School in Canberra -- the second bread-based attack to target her this month.
Gillard was visiting the school to announce education funding reforms when a student hurled a white-bread-salami sandwich at her.
Dozens of excited school kids, one sandwich & an agreement that will get the children of the ACT a world class education for generations.JG

Asked if she was disappointed about today's sandwich incident, Gillard joked that the thrower "must have thought I was hungry," Australia's news.com.au reports
The news website adds that -- thankfully -- the sandwich was not toasted and had not been sliced.

This is the second sandwich incident to involve the Australian Prime Minister this month: A teenager at a Queensland school was suspended after he was held responsible for throwing a Vegemite sandwich at the Gillard during another school visit earlier this month, the Sydney Morning Herald recalls.

Although no one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, there is some concern of another lunchtime launch in the works:

The PM's office should consider deploying a patriot missile battery on school visits to intercept incoming lunch box content. #sandwichgate

Who feeds kids salami in white bread anyway? My kids would've thrown a deconstructed burrito in a bowl. #sandwichgate
