Staff at the prestigious Betoota University are shaking their heads this week as an otherwise normal student made the call to get involved in youth politics.
While BU has not named the student in question, he is reported to be a popular and happy young man, making it all the more confusing as to why he’d voluntarily spend his time and money hanging out with the worst type of people (who also aspire to be politicians).
“I mean, sure, we have mandatory voting so you should be interested in politics,” stated BU admin worker Leoni Sprigg.
“But Christ, pay for some journalism or argue with a boomer at a pub, don’t go joining a youth political group.”
The University staff have since thrown around multiple theories as to why the seemingly normal bloke would choose to spend his evenings teaching overgrown toddlers how to drink while hearing exactly what poor people need in this country.
“Maybe it’s part of a charity thing?”
“I reckon he’s trying to get it off with a girl who only dates blokes who are as boneheaded as she is.”
Sprigg and other staff members then tossed up the idea that perhaps the so-called normal bloke was really interested in influencing positive change in our national approach to global warming and believes youth politics is a great place to start.
“Hahaha! Could you actually imagine?”
When asked why he had chosen the specific political party he joined, the student who we cannot name, simply smiled and said “I don’t think the other group is much better” as if that made him seem like less of a fucking phsycho.
