Prime Minister for Men Scott Morrison was shocked to learn that his pay packet will be cut in half following his appointment of Marise Payne as Prime Minister for Women, a role which represents over 50% of the population.
Morrison – who will continue in his role as Prime Minister for Men Who Wish It Was Still 1950 – will now be paid around $275k a year to avoid responsibility, compared with the $550k he previously received to avoid responsibility.
The Prime Minister for Women role had previously been unfilled.
A shocked Morrison told staffers he wasn’t aware that women made up such a large proportion of the population. “Half! Really? There’s that many of them? I thought it was just a few annoying people who protested outside of Parliament House once in a while”.
He later said that Jenny had explained the situation for him, telling him to imagine that half of the population were his daughters. “She has a way of clarifying things,” he said.
