Oz parliament enjoys multiple orgasms

Genetically-modified, naturally

An Oz Liberal backbencher secured his place in Austrlian parliamentary history by suffering multiple, genetically-modified orgasms while addressing the house yesterday, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Victorian MP Jason Wood got into trouble while discussing "genetically modified organisms". He wowed the mercifully sparse late-evening attendance thus: "I support the member for McMillan's call for the government to conduct an independent broad-ranging scientific investigation into the genetic modification of food and biotechnology to assess not only the health of the crops and the food, but also the potential for contamination, the commercial implications for Australian primary industry, and the benefits and risks associated with genetically modified orgasms, orgasms."

The mutiple climax of his declaration was apparently because Wood "sounded a little confused about the word, so tried pronouncing it two ways".

Moving swiftly on, Wood was able later in his speech to correctly offer "genetically modified organisms", although the poor chap "did not have the hallmarks of a great orator", the Sydney Morning Herald notes. ®
