Lord, how we wish we could claim this one to be the handiwork of one of our own staffers. But this impeccably timed piece of comedic genius has come from one of y’all.

A curious – and as it turns out, hilarious – listing arrived in the Monday morning inbox of our Jobs team, advertising the suddenly vacant chair of Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Some Hilarious Legend Sent Us A Job Ad For Bronny’s “Speaker Of The House” Gig

The ad, which is real in the sense that it has a link that you can visit to see for yourselves, is offering the seat “willingly” vacated by Bronwyn Bishop yesterday evening, and will see you overseeing the House of Representatives, maintaining an impartial stance towards Parliamentary proceedings, and ensuring that conduct and behaviour is in line with regulatory standards & practices at all times. Or, to put it another way, it’s like trying to single-handedly wrangle 150 Fourth Graders all fucked up on Wizz Fizz.

Though it’s filed under “Ethical/Non-Profit” it should be noted that the successful candidate will probably be required to maintain a loose definition of both terms.

The job is reportedly offering a salary range of $30,000 – $200,000+, presumably dependent on experience – though experience isn’t exactly the highest regarded pre-requisite to enter Parliament.

A fear of flying will likely be seen as beneficial.

If you’re keen to apply for this “totally” “legitimate” “job” “vacancy,” hit the Jobs page up and address your application to “Tony Abbot” (because when urgency is this great, spelling becomes useless time wastage).

And hey, while you’re at it, why not make the most of your time at Pedestrian JOBS and snoop around the other listings. Who knows? You may just find your dream (real) job.
