A beautiful fairy appeared one day to an asylum seeker claimant outside the Centrelink Offices.
'My good man,'the fairy said,
'I've been told by my master Kevin Rudd to grant you three wishes, because you have just arrived in Australia with your wife and seven children – even though all costs will be borne by Australian Tax Payers.'
The man told the fairy:
'Well, where I come from we don't have good teeth, so I want new teeth, maybe with a lot of gold in them .'
The fairy looked at the man's almost toothless grin and -- PING !!! The Asylum Seeker had a brand new shining set of gold teeth in his mouth!
'What else?' asked the fairy, 'two more wishes to go'.
The Asylum Seeker refugee now got bolder.
'I need a big house with a three car garage on the Gold Coast with eight bedrooms – and a Gold Visa Card in each room - for my family and the rest of my refugee relatives who still live in poverty. This is such a great place I want to bring them all over here.
PING! - In the distance there could be seen a beautiful mansion with a three car garage, a long driveway, a walkout patio with a BBQ, and a sparkling swimming pool and a BMW, full of his nephews playing their music.
'One more wish left for you', said the fairy, waving her wand.
The Asylum Seeker really decided to go for broke now and said “I want to be Australian with Australian clothes instead of rags and a shawl, and I want to have white skin like a true Australian.'
PING ! - The man was transformed, wearing worn out Stubbies shorts, a dirty Bonds T-shirt and a greasy terry-towel hat. He had his bad teeth back and the mansion had disappeared from the horizon.
'What happened to my new teeth?' he wailed. 'Where is my new house? Where’s my Visa Gold Card?'
The fairy said:
"Tough luck. Now that you are an Australian, you're entitled to sweet bugger all like the rest of us”.
And then she disappeared!
