Die hard fans of Australian politics are waiting with baited breath to find out if the well of nutbags that One Nation draws its senate candidates from is indeed bottomless.
“You’ve got to consider that Pauline took a look at him and Malcolm Roberts and decided that Malcolm Roberts was the first choice so God only knows what kind of whack job this next bloke’s going to be,” said Darling Downs voter Jack Pittsworth. “I’d be seriously surprised if we don’t find out he has a history of trying to fly from the top of the Eiffel Tower on a pair of home made wings.”
“We all understand the need for Pauline to surround herself with howling loons as a means of making herself look vaguely competent, so we’ve got our fingers crossed that we’re finally going to see a ridgey didge flat earther get into parliament,” said Wal Mercator, president of the Flat Earth Society. “This next dude had better be proposing an expedition to find the edge of the world in a wooden submarine he’s been building in his shed, or things could turn ugly.”
The sixth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-6) will officially list One Nation Candidate as a recognised mental heath disease for the first time, confirmed the American Psychiatric Association.
