Who's Arse Is Worth Five Thousand Dollars?

I heard on the radio this evening that Cabinet, that part of the ruling body in the Federal Government that gathers to make "informed" decisions about party policy, with its 50 members, has decided to buy new seats. Not your ordinary $89.95 office chair but ones valued at $5000 a pop. No wonder they wish to get single mothers back into the workforce so quickly. They need a golden throne to sit on and somebody has to pay for it.

Just tell me who in this country is worth that sort of money. I can understand a few fat Ministers requiring a larger seat but not one worth five big ones.

Where can I get me one of these. My chair that I am using to work on my computer is most uncomfortable, & not doing my back a whole lot of good! Are they free for the underprivaliged?

Triple J interviewed a guy from Officeworks and they only had a chair that went up to $700. It didn't really sell until they knocked it down to about $250. So, I don't know where these chairs are coming from. There was a suggestion that they were so expensive because they must have been lined with baby seal fur.
