Experts have confirmed that the cost of living in Australia’s capital cities has now hit critical levels, now outgrowing the point of living.


“Yep,” said one researcher. “I love things like spending time with my loved ones, enjoying leisure, participating in hobbies and interacting with people.


“But with rent like this… meh. Not really feeling it, you know?”


Researchers have confirmed that the sheer weight of economic obligation caused by a steeply increased cost of living has made most things basically kind of pointless. The nationwide study, entitled “Welp” is currently considered one of the most hotly-debated documents in Canberra.


“Well, would you look at that,” said Malcolm Turnbull, upon reading that skyrocketing costs of living had rendered most activities kinda pointless and utterly atomised a population who now spend their whole life making money merely to see it blown away on basic expenses.


“Suppose I’ll just go lie down for a bit.”
