A politician Down Under had to have three stitches and is sporting one hell of a black eye after laughing so hard at HBO's 'Veep' that he started to choke on some sushi and knocked himself out.

According to The Australian, Australian federal Labor MP Graham Perrett "made the mistake of watching political satire Veep while eating, started laughing — then choking — while masticating a load of rice, fell over and planted face first on to the ... bench."

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Perrett described the incident, saying: "Some of the rice went down the wrong way, I started choking and I kind of stumbled forward and knocked my head on the corner of the kitchen cabinet."

"My wife walked in to find me knocked unconscious on the ground, with blood everywhere. I must have been out for only a few seconds because when I came to again, I was still laughing at Jonah."

And once the press got a hold of the story, it even spread to the cast and crew of 'Veep'.

It's safe to say the stars of the show were very amused.

Safe to say, eating and watching a show this funny is a dangerous game.
