In 2008 Anthony announced plans to bottle, mass produce and distribute his own line of leg wax, with production to start in his basement. He currently has no financial backers.
Due to Anthony's recent failures in the pet industry, something which is never to be discussed ever again, Anthony has decided to pursue his boyhood dream of living his day to day life within the confines of a large rubber lobster suit.Anthony is yet to receive the government funding that he so heavily requires for this to be success but has started anyway to live in the giant rubber lobster suit as a form of protest, with a goal of drumming up grassroots support for his campaign. With no publicity behind his protest people do not have any idea about what his message is, what he is trying to achieve, or where to go for more information but Anthony is unfazed by this criticism, and he continues to live within the giant rubber lobster suit, mostly just walking around the city of Melbourne's various highways, again for some unknown reason.
Anthony has recently adapted the hit British television show Ramsay's Kitchen to an Australia version of the show, to be called McCormack's Kitchen. A pilot is in the works for Channel Ten. While Anthony knows nothing about food or running a kitchen, he is very good at excessive swearing. He plans to wear his lobster suit for the duration of this.
Anthony has recently bought a new car.
Anthony was recently involved in a near fatal car crash that resulted in the writing off of his new car. The padding in the lobster suit he was wearing at the time thankfully absorbed most of the impact.
