Banksy Reveals Latest Installation

Celebrated street artist Banksy has unveiled his biggest project yet – a full-scale parody of a parliamentary system, perched on a hill in the Australian town of Canberra.  

Called simply ‘The Australian Government’, critics have described the giant installation as ‘absurd, alarming and on the whole massively disappointing’.

The project has been shrouded in secrecy for years, with many locals assuming the building was a serious place of work. “When it was revealed today as a Banksy piece, it all made sense,” one Canberra local said.

An interactive art piece, visitors can view surreal live performances called ‘Question Time’ or have sex in the ‘prayer room’.

In a quirk that could only be conceived by Banksy, the piece is actually paid for by taxpayers but owned by mining companies.

Sally Rooney Doubles Price of Book So Jews Don’t Buy It

In another move aimed at supporting the anti-Israel BDS movement, Irish author Sally Rooney announced that she will double the price of her new novel to prevent Jews, notoriously stingy, from buying the book.

Determined to ensure her book is not read by any Israelis or Zionists, Rooney already refused to allow her book to be translated into Hebrew. But after learning that many Israelis also speak English, Rooney decided further measures were needed to keep the novel out of Israeli hands.

“At first I was going to only allow the book to be published in German, but I was informed that many Yiddish speakers would be able to understand it,” Rooney said. “Then it occurred to me – just raise the price and refuse to give any discounts. The Jews will never pay full price for anything!”

Rooney’s decision was celebrated as a win by supporters of BDS.

“The Jews may have stolen our land, imprisoned our children, and denied us sovereignty, but at least we can read ‘Beautiful World’” said Qatari-born Omar Barghouti, the founder of the BDS movement, and supporter of academic boycotts against Israel who received two academic degrees from an Israeli university. “I mean, the book kind of sucks, I couldn’t make it through the first 100 pages, but that’s not the point here.”
