Nation’s unemployed trees face welfare cut

In its ongoing effort to shore up spending cut so it can achieve its much vaunted budget surplus the Federal government has announced it will cease all unemployment benefits to the nations’ unemployed trees.

Federal Minister for trees Iva Root told the Bugle Network News exclusively that, “trees have been rorting the benefits system for years. They just stand about converting carbon dioxide into oxygen and quite literally watching the grass grow.”

A spokesman for Australia’s trees said nothing. This is mainly because trees can’t talk however they can bark and young Australia would do well not to be taking a leaf out of their book.
