Who’s on first? A classic with a new twist

Jimmy Fallon, Billy Crystal, and Jerry Seinfeld revisit Abbott & Costello’s classic “Who’s On First?” routine, where we finally get to meet the team’s first-baseman “Who,” second-baseman “What,” and third-baseman “I Don’t Know.

Poem of the Day: Ode to Gareth Morgan

Posted by Hamilton Lad in the comments, I thought it deserved a wider audience

We worry Gareth Morgan

Are you a fool, or is there doubt?

Make it easy for us Gareth,

Open mouth – remove all doubt!

We worry Gareth Morgan

We can’t see where you’re at.

Are you working on our KiwiSaver

Or trying to kill our cat?

We worry Gareth Morgan,

You stunned us quite a bunch,

When you threw those bucks at Happy Feet

Then turned him into lunch!

We worry Gareth Morgan

You’ve made this such a farce

How does a garden gnome get his head

That far up his arse?

Gareth Morgan contracts EDS for Cat Wrangling?

Free National Advertising

Via the Tipline:

Cam,

I had to use the public loos at Reefton today, and noticed some nice entrepreneurial man had left his contact details behind.  So I thought, he obviously loves exposure, why not give him some national exposure?

Gareth isn’t the only one who kills penguins

It appears that not only cats kill cute  little birds…and Gareth Morgan isn’t the only one to kill penguins:

A little blue penguin has died after being  picked up and handled by members of the public.

Department of Conservation Motueka  biodiversity manager Bruce Vander Lee said DOC received reports on Tuesday of a penguin  being  seen under a bush at Little Kaiteriteri near a pipe which he thought it may have been using as a burrow.

‘‘At that point someone decided it needed help and moved it.’’

DOC Motuka  then received a chain of phone calls about the penguin being handled.  Read more »

Did Farrar cause Ron Jeremy’s health scare?

Obviously David Farrar’s hurty arse and the mention of Ron Jeremy are connected to the hospitalisation of the porn star with an aneurysm…I can see it can’t you:
