The New Daily is proud to present (drum roll, please) …
… the 100th Edition of The Ferguson Report: Fake News You Can Trust!
Much has changed since a man in a foreign land with a wacky hairdo and a fistful of fibs tricked his way to power (apart from the other man in another foreign land with a wacky hairdo and a fistful of fibs who just tricked his way to power).
Australia suffered another election replacing the government with the same government and the PM with a man who was actually elected PM.
And Barnaby Joyce remained Barnaby Joyce – freshly squeezed.
Thank you to all the fans who make The Ferguson Report the narrow winner of World’s Most Fake Media Award.
Enjoy some highlights from the 100 editions…
Soon-to-be-Ex-PM Malcolm Turnbull is relaxed about his imminent Ex-PM role. “I can’t wait to undermine the re-elected Tony Abbott like the old days,” he said. “It’s a dream-job. Zero responsibility, 100 per cent fun!”
The Prime Minister du jour said, “It’s the denials I look forward to: ‘Tony is my BFF.’ ‘Tony’s sooooo right.’ And my favourite – ‘Tony has my complete and total loyalty’.”
Tony Abbott offered his complete and total loyalty.
LNP MP Tim Wilson refused to answer questions on Sky News about government squabbles over gay marriage.
“I’d rather talk about something else that actually matters to the Australian population,” said Wilson.
An exasperated government spokesman agreed. “Gay marriage is irrelevant to all Australians. As proof, we will stop the entire nation for a plebiscite vote. It’s worth the enormous expense ($160m) to show how completely unimportant it is. Australians don’t care, and they’ll spend whatever it takes to prove it.”
Alleged Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned the far-right rally of desperately dateless, slack-jawed numpties.
Scomofo defied the St Kilda rally organisers, the extremely extremist Backward Front saying: “Australians are not anti-migrant, nor racist.”
“Apart from the Australians at the rally,” clarified a spokeswoman.
“We are not racist,” said a White Supremacist genetic throwback to the time before dentistry. “We are against black Sudanese immigrants. See the difference?”
A bow-legged orc with immaculate breeding said: “Stop the African gangs. Australia’s gangs should be as white as the Ace of Spades [which, if you think about it, is a mostly white card.]”
Labor’s ‘big target strategy’ has accidentally made Labor a big target.
“We head-butted franking credits to give retirees a nappy-wedgie,” said a Labor stooge dressed as the side of a barn. “It’s Election Class 101 to avoid things nobody understands, but Chris Bowen skipped that class.”
A Liberal spokeswoman clapped happily. “Nobody actually knows what ‘franking’ is, but we’re sure it’s condemned in the Bible.”
Pollsters agree the race is neck and neck. But the winner will be News Corp.
The Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, has shocked conservatives worldwide.
“Overreach!” shouted a motherly mother from mothers’ group Mothers For Mothers. “First, she chewed gum, and we thought that was pushing it. But now she is walking and chewing gum at the same time. She can’t have it all!”
After Ardern defiantly walked and chewed, she relaxed with her favourite pastimes – raising her newborn baby and running the country.
According to anecdotal evidence, naturopathy is a thing.
The “science” of “natural” “medicine” was first invented by people who are long-dead. “It” is based upon “evidence” gathered by websites who only have financial gain to gain.
A “naturopath” wearing a corduroy suit and spectacles on a string said, “Homeopathy is a tiny but miniscule example. The power of ultra-diluted medicine is literally incalculable. But be careful of overdose.”
He drank a glass of water and miraculously survived.
Australia’s last surviving anti-vaccine activists have scoffed, coughed and wheezed at a new Danish study proving the mumps-measles-rubella vaccine does not increase the risk of autism in children.
Researchers who studied 650,000 babies born in Denmark found there is absolutely no association.
“The Danes aren’t that great,” said ‘Vaccine Maxine’, an anti-vaxxer non-chin-waxer. “We deserve a voice (between bouts of coughing and hospital visits).”
“Research is bogus!” said a home-schooled quinoa-licking spokesman in an iron lung. “Alternatives to alternative facts make my skin crawl and come out in spots.”
A Flat Earth guesswork expert shocked scientists when she declared, “The earth is not flat.”
A CSIRO spokeswoman expressed relief. “Phew! We were worried Galileo was crazy, Stephen J Hawking’s words are just an App and global warming is shaped like a ping-pong table.”
But the Flat Earth denialist presented a new theory. “The Moon is flat. That’s right – the Moon. We admit the Moon’s a circle, but it’s flat as a frisbee. That’s how they got it up there in the first place.”
US President Donald Trump claims he is the victim of a ‘witch hunt’. Speaking at a fireside press conference deep in the Washington Woods, Trump waved a beheaded chicken at journalists. ‘I saw Hillary dancing with the Devil,’ he said.
The President cavorted naked around the bonfire. “No politician in history has been treated more unfairly than me,” he chanted. When reminded Abraham Lincoln and JFK were assassinated, Trump said, ‘Sure, but they got great media.’
He howled at the moon, jumped in a pond… and floated.
US President-Between-Meals Donald Trump has accused comedy show Saturday Night Live of being an “ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE”. Trump posted his all-caps, too-busy-for-grammar tweet after Alec Baldwin satirised Trump’s border wall crisis-what-crisis.
But America’s actual ‘enemies of the people’ (ISIS, the KKK and billionaires with time on their hands) have complained the term is losing all meaning.
“We put in the hours, plotting, scheming, hating,” said a KKK spokesman who shall remain nameless, faceless and illiterate. “And this is the thanks we get? I’m so angry I could ruin a bedsheet and pointlessly kill someone.”
Trump meant to tweet ‘ENEMY OF THE PERSON’, claiming that his Government is “Of the Person, by the Person, for the Person.”
A psychology study has described the ‘Millennials’ generation as “ungrateful parasites”, without wishing to hurt their precious feelings.
The study claims, “Millennials are almost as self-centred as Gen-X whiners, Baby Boom house-hogs, 1920’s Gatsbyites, Victorian Era ‘Tweens’, Elizabethan Era ‘Twixts’ and the snarling yoof of Ancient Greece.”
A Millennials spokesbeing posted a devastating rebuttal on an app of some sort.
