Government Announces Budget Surplus Of Negative $161 Billion

Josh Frydenberg says his government will deliver on its commitment of getting ‘back in black’, confirming a budget surplus of – $161 billion for the 2021/22 financial year.

Wearing a ‘Back in Black’ cap and t-shirt, Mr Frydenberg said in his budget speech that he was a man of his word.

“We said we’d deliver a surplus, and that’s exactly what we’ve done. It’s definitely a surplus”.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison reiterated that the budget was in surplus. “It’s a bit of a different style of surplus this time around – one where we’ll have to borrow a bit of money to make it work – but it’s a surplus nonetheless. It’s definitely a surplus. That’s what we deal with in the Liberal Party: surpluses. And this is a surplus”.

When asked why it wasn’t being described as a deficit, given it was a negative figure, Mr Morrison said “I don’t accept the premise of your question”.

Ahmadinejad to Host SNL after Outcry over Musk Appearance

Looking to appease cast members traumatized by Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s appearance as guest host, Saturday Night Live has invited former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to host next week’s episode.

The actors had demanded SNL producer Lorne Michaels bring on a committed progressive to make up for bringing Musk, who has refused to list his preferred pronouns in his Twitter profile, onto the show. The choice of Ahmadinejad, who has thrilled American Leftists with tweets celebrating Colin Kaepernick, and the Black Panthers, immediately won the support of SNL’s cast members.

“It is about time we had a true social justice warrior like Ahmadinejad representing our show,” cast member Michael Che tweeted. “Iran has been a true leader in transgender rights, and President Ahmadinejad has vowed that there are no gay people facing discrimination or oppression in his country. If only America had such forward-looking leadership!”

As of press time, Ahmadinejad has agreed to host the show on the condition that all female cast members and Pete Davidson wear a burka for the duration of the filming.
