As I’ve been reading the acronym as the individual letters, rather than as one word, it took me a moment to realise Ms. Quirk’s pun here. Clearly I’m slipping:

MS R. SAFFIOTI (West Swan) [1.35 pm]: […] In talking about the relationship between new technologies in Western Australia and the importance of science and innovation, I want to compare the Square Kilometre Array project with geothermal energy. The SKA project will bring enormous benefits to Western Australia. Western Australia did not get the entire SKA project. We got a mini SKA, or a part of SKA —

Mr W.J. Johnston: Son of SKA!

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: Yes, son of SKA!

Ms M.M. Quirk: SKA tissue!

Ms R. SAFFIOTI: The distant cousin of SKA!
