Omicron mix-up: PM suspends flights to Australia after mistakenly hearing that “E. Macron” is on the way over

Scott Morrison has immediately stopped all flights into Australia and violently shit himself in public, after mistakenly hearing that French president “E. Macron” was on his way to the country.

Asked by a journalist for comment on the government’s response to ‘Omicron’, a visibly shaken Prime Minister said he wasn’t going to cop sledging from the French, and announced he would be shutting down all air traffic into Australia from this morning.

“We can’t risk having further allegations about my character spreading unchecked throughout the country,” he said, before taking out his phone and leaking a series of private text messages.

After the confusion was cleared up and the PM learned it was a potentially deadly new variant of COVID-19 that had reached Australia’s shores and not an embittered Frenchman on a warpath, he breathed a sigh of relief, refused to comment or take responsibility for the government’s eventual botched response, and shook hands with a local cafe owner for his social media, before finally changing his pants.
