Swap

19 Comments

I am not a connoisseur of reality TV but  will admit to liking Wife Swap. There was something compelling watching women go into another family’s home for the purpose of bossing them around for a week. Unlike most reality juggernauts the Wife Swap franchise didn’t  take off in Australia. There was one series on the Lifestyle channel which sank with barely a ripple. I think its high time this brand was revitalized. I propose that in order to give it a fresh twist we swap out public figures instead of wives. I have some choice candidates in mind.

Wouldn’t it be fun to swap

Christopher Pyne for

Jabba is slightly less self interested and will take up less space in the Parliament.

In the interests of balance and non-partisanship let’s swap

Bill Shorten for

That stimulus package is more like it.

Don’t exeggerate about your stimulus package Bill.

Bill Granger

  7. Oh, love it. Anyone is really better than the swappees – if that’s what they are!

  8. Excellent idea! It’s really just not fair that the US gets Mr Suave Obama and we get the drover’s dog. Oh heck, let’s just clone Richard Fidler and swap out the whole parliament!

  9. Love this post. Even the swapping with Clive Palmer and Jabba is hilarious!

  12. Hahahaha, bring on these swapsies! With your level of wit and perception, Mabs, you give me hope for humankind 😉

  13. Yes to Chris Pine/Pyne swapping!!!! I was ROFLMAOing by the time I got to Clive Palmer and Jabba the Hut, uncanny resemblance!

    Visiting today from #teamIBOT xxx

  14. Jabba and Clive are disturbingly similar aren’t they? I wonder if Aussies would vote J in?

  15. I’ll take the kombi and keep Annabel Crabb!

  16. Nice keep list. Now this would be an interest season of ‘Life Swap’. I am imagining parliament as characters from Star Wars now, Tony’s looking a little wookieish in that photo and all sorts of eeew 🙂
