Prime Minister Tony Abbott has jokingly called mistakes, "doing an Abbott" during a Wednesday interview with 2GB radio host Ray Hadley.
The phrase came during an exchange where Mr Hadley talked about his "mates" having a new phrase for mistakes they make.
"Doing an Abbott?" Mr Abbott jokingly interjected.
Mr Hadley then informed him, no, it was "captain's picks", in relation to the term used by Mr Abbott to justify several controversial decisions since he was elected.
