Not fetching, gay

John Key reckons his Cambodian silk shirt was “fetching”…he is wrong…it is gayer than the gay red shirt that he went on about. Maybe he will gift it to Fossy to wear in his gay ute.

If the PM is in any doubt he should ask Max

While some of the leaders looked resplendent in traditional Cambodian silk shirts, John Key looked, well, a little gay, in hot pink silk with bulging shoulder pads.

Mr Key described it later as “fetching”. And he said others had thought so too.

“That was broadly along the lines that the President [Barack Obama] described it as too,” he said with barely suppressed delight.

    He said Felching, not fetching.

  • MarkF

    Didn’t you know Pink is the new camoflage!

  • Mitch82

    You couldn’t gay that up any further, even with tassels, rhinestones, or strategic removal of genital support material.

    • Travis Poulson

      he’d have been better off swapping clothes with that woman.

  • In Vino Veritas

    Caught between a rock and a hard place I’d say. Would like to have called it gay, but can’t since he might offend people. And a good few dykes and mincers in the Labour Party.

  • Can you imagine him saying to the host, “No, I don’t want that one”? Of course in Asia he is being honoured given a red shirt to wear.

  • CommonSense404

    Yep, its gayer than a gay thing. But do you see JK worrying about copping a bit of stick for it? He’s happy to be the butt of the joke – doesn’t affect him one bit. A good example!

    • blazer

      did those cliches come out the way you intended?

    • Troy

      It’s funny really – JK doesn’t worry about the what people say about him and what he says and does, hell if he did he would have been out of the game a long time ago.

      Classic Key and this is why the public still love him. He drinks beer, has a laugh and takes the piss out of himself. He’s one of us.

      • Gayguy

        I would rather someone in charge who knew what they were doing than the guy people want to have a beer with.

  • Patrick

    Eyeliner, touch of rouge on the cheeks, fishnet stockings & high
    heels – he would make a fortune at Hunters Corner. Would be the only
    chance Labour get to f$ck him over.

  • I would sum it up as cheerful, bright and colourful. If only there was another word for that.

  • cows4me

    He might would to give it to Jamie Mackay for Christmas, go well with his gay red jersey.

  • conwaycaptain

    There must be cupboards full fo these shirts that are handed out at each conference. No one would wear them after the event.

    • Gazzaw

      I’m sure he’ll bring this one back CC. Bronagh can stick it in the wash and give it a quick iron – I’m sure the Keys have been wondering what to give to Teletubby Robertson for Christmas. He’ll be a blast at the Hero parade in that and a diamante G-string.

  • Gazzaw

    I’m sure he’ll have some great one liners for the media when he gets back. That’s the big difference between him & the humourless lefties.

  • Zephyr Cobalt

    Being the naturally generous person he is John Key has purchased 20 of these shirts to give to the Labour MPs for Christmas. Rumour has it is that Grant Robertson has already put in his request. I know there are 34 Labour MPs but John thought by giving only 20 it will challenge Labour to make a decision thereby causing another leadership crisis.

  • Changeiscoming

    Yes indeed a very gay shirt Mr Key

  • Agent BallSack

    I’ve seen Helen Clark wear something similar by choice. So its definitely fucking gay.

  • Beanyboy

    He probably received it, went “Oh Shit” Then laughed and put it on….would Helen Clark have done that? She would have thrown a tantrum and asked one of her minions to sort it out…I don’t know that Shearer would put it on…..and most definately not Silent T

    • Travis Poulson

      Or sat there and cried, then had a sneaky look to see if any cameras caught the moment…..

  • Steve (North Shore)

    This backfiring of an attack on Key by the ‘Horrid’ must be pissing Labour off big time.
    The attention is still on the Labour Leadership and pecking order (who is rooting who, and who is not paying) John Key doesn’t give a rat’s arse what shirt he wears

  • Gayguy

    Good to see even someone like Key can learn to change their negative vocabulary.

    • GregM

      What negative vocabulary? If someone made a non ambiguous comment such as:
      “John Key looks like a fart puncher in that gay shirt”, how could that be viewed in a negative manner? It is only someones opinion, that’s all, get over it.
