Here's two words that are virtually impossible to make non-awesome: "Sex" and "Party." Can't be ruined, right?
Well, what if I added the words "to Be Australia's Newest Political Party"?
Ugh! Did you just get chills, too? This is no good for sex or politics. Or humanity…
The party — launched Thursday at Sexpo, an annual sex exhibition in Melbourne — has already gathered the required 500 members and plans to register with the electoral commission next week.
While most of its members are drawn from Eros — Australia's national adult industry association— the Sex Party believes it can attract a broader base.
Oh, yeah, a very broad base, I'm sure.
I'm fairly positive that base could easily include: old people, fat people, ugly people, bald people, weird new age-y people, creepy people, sad people, overly-friendly people, and Paul Hogan.
Their filibustering techniques would be interesting, though.
