  1. I hope he also lets them know a surplus is not just for the holidays. Someone will have to feed it and clean up after it . . .

    How do I know it won’t be the press gallery?

  2. So true Holden. Surpluses are notoriously hungry, and then they go through that stage at about 18 months of age where they chew absolutely everything. And you might end up with one that howls at the moon. Wait, sorry, that’s Opposition Leaders.

  3. What word describes a surplus of surpluses?

    An insight from the Carole Bayer Sager song ‘Don’t Wish Too Hard’ which I dedicate to the fickle and feckless commentariat:

    ‘What you really wanted and what you really wished for
    You never really wanted at all’

  4. Spot on again FD. The real joke will be if the wreckers get in next year. With their numbers man unable to see his toes let alone use them when he is doing his sums, they are going to have double the black hole their sums had last time.

  5. When I saw how darling the tiny surplus was and how it made that cute noise like the Big Brother contestants, I wanted to have a second surplus but Wayne won’t let me.

  6. He cooked the books, produced a surplus and wants to get rid of it next morning. You could say it parallels an episode in Tony Abbott’s life. Meantime, who gets that cheap excuse for a baby bonus?
