A local cougar has tested the strength of her marriage by flexing on her younger husband all this week, wearing her vaccination sticker a little longer than necessary. 41-year-old Kellie Stephenson of Watsonia North delivered the controversial powerplay this week, as her 38-year-old husband Fred McManus languished at the bottom of the COVID-19 vaccination pecking order.

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle, Fred said, “It’s a bloody joke, mate. Talk about rubbing my nose in it. Sure, I’d love to be medically protected against this horrible illness, but I can’t help it that I’m biologically less vulnerable than Kellie. My superior immune system and obviously more youthful appearance shouldn’t be used against me. I’m just trying to enjoy the prime of my life while old mate’s over there flashing her sticker at me every time I pass her in the hall. And because of this bloody lockdown I can’t even escape her!”

When contacted for her side of the story, Kellie was unrepentant. She said, “That jerk never stops reminding me and the kids that he’s younger than me, so this is my chance to get something back. I might be old, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t got a few tricks left up my sleeve. And besides, what other entertainment options do I have at the moment?”
