Fresh as a doozy Nationals leader, Barnaby ‘Jump For’ Joyce has hit the ground running, with his fists.
Joyce has restored calm with a can of petrol and a blowtorch. After less than a week, the stress has made Barnaby’s face move erratically with a Joyce Tick.
Country voters rejoiced that coal mines will keep warming the planet, saving farmers the costs of outdoor heating.
Barnaby Joyce and Scott Morrison agree on everything. But they disagree on everything else.
According to a Liquor Cabinet member at a party room meeting, a government MP claimed working women are “outsourcing parenting”.
The Liberal MP Hollie Hughes shot back. “Thank you, boys, for telling us how to best raise our children.”

A Eurasian-African-Anglo actor said, “No one without mixed heritage could understand the pain of being conceived in a multicultural society.”
A gay actor confessed he is not quite sure how to act gay. “I haven’t experienced the full spectrum of gayness because I don’t play rugby or drive a semi-trailer.”
