The Abbott Government's new university funding/organ donation policies.

Education Minister Christopher Pyne has dismissed suggestions the Abbott Government is considering making students donate kidneys to pay for their $100,000 university degrees. Kidneys just aren't worth very much.

Pyne's also done an extraordinary interview with The Monthly, which you really must read because trying to make it into lolz is a bit like trying to satirise Henry Kissinger winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

What the hell just happened?

I go to bed, Julia's PM.

Then they tried to sell it

There was outrage on social media

There was consternation at Crosby Textor

Mmmm, appetising

The Opposition Leader made a statement about it:

I'll try not to nap for so long in future.
