Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce having just signed a book deal is now sweating on his supporters ability to be able to actually read a book.
“It’s a big risk we are taking by giving a deal to Barnaby to write a book,” said Publisher Dusty Jacket. “But you never know his supporters did manage to fill in a slip to vote for the man so fingers crossed they can read a book.”
“Or at the very least they can read the title and pay the money for the book.”
When asked how he was feeling about launching his book Barnaby Joyce replied: “Mate, I am sweating bullets as you know I have families to feed. If this book tanks I may have to do something stupid like challenge for my old job back.”
Or if that fails then it’s off to the Private sector I go, hang on let me go and call Gina.”
