Australia Club Votes To Change Name To “Half Australia Club”

Sydney’s exclusive ‘Australia Club’ will now be known as ‘The Half Australia Club’ in a move designed to more properly reflect those eligible for membership.

The vote caused much discussion within the elite all-male club, with some members saying they were previously unaware women existed.

“If they do exist, they certainly don’t make up half the population,” one member said. “Apart from the odd woman brining out sandwiches and my wife whose name I can’t remember right now, I’ve never seen any”.   

Others said the name change was unnecessary, given the diversity of the membership.   

“The Australia Club welcomes all sorts. Everyone from rich old white men from Mosman, to rich old white men from Double Bay. It’s open to absolutely everyone I know”.

Many within the club felt the name-change didn’t go far enough, suggesting ‘The 0.1% Club’, or ‘The Totally Fucking Terrified Of Change Club’, might be more fitting.

Mattel Issues Safety Recall For Julie Bishop Doll Over Fears It Sends Children To Indefinite Detention

Toy company Mattel has issued an urgent recall notice for its Julie Bishop Barbie Doll, following reports some children had been sent to an island detention facility after playing with the toy.

In a lengthy statement, Mattel said the doll contained glamorous clothing and a slick Instagram feed which could trick children into thinking the doll was harmless.

“The clothes and suitcase are just for pretending,” the statement read. “Once you look past the costume this toy can be a hazard”.

One distressed parent said she hadn’t seen her daughter since yesterday. “One minute she’s playing with the doll, the next thing you know she’s on Manus Island without access to proper facilities”.

More to come.
