Happiness as Anarchy #114: Australian Political Satire

Humour is such an intrinsic part of culture. You know you’re fluent in another language when you get the jokes. Similarly, there’s a resonance in the humour of your primary culture and language. Australian political satire has a very distinctive flavour, and I love it. Every now and then I’m reminded of how funny and biting it can be, as I was tonight when I saw the Parliamentary Piss Taker. May it make you laugh all the way to the urinal.
