Good. We all need more laughter in life.


Martyn Bradbury is setting up shop on his own blog.

This will go one of two ways:  either I won’t be able stop going there for my daily laugh, or (much more likely), I’ll pop in when he’s made such a fool of himself that the news of it drifts into the attention span of the general media.

    So this amazing new adventure he’s going on…leaving one blog for another? Exciting, YAWN.

    • *** SSHHHHH *** nobody say “a falling out”, ok?

  • Auto_Immune

    So this will be different from ‘The Standard’ how?

    • DJ

      He will only allow comments from people who actually like the Labour Party :)

      • cows4me

        Should be a short lived spectacle then.

        • axeman

          Love this summing up from RightNow on farrarblog
          “New Blog Unites Top Left-Wing Political Commentators And Progressive Opinion Shapers”

          Well that should be as much fun as herpes.

  • Mr_Blobby

    Enjoyed bombers rants always good for a laugh. But that was about it never anything constructive. I wonder how long it will take me to be banned.

    • Travis Poulson

      Bet I’ll be first, the mere sight of my name will get a kneejerk reaction with the banhammer. 5 words that will trigger his fragile ego into action: “I disagree with you because. ….”

  • Andy

    Is going to be the NZ equivalent of The Daily Mash?

    • Andy
      • I was thinking he was going to have a go at a mixture of the Daily Show and The Daily Dish, except it won’t be intentionally funny or widely read.

        For it to have ANY credibility, he’d have to bring his readership up to the point of Tumeke at an absolute minimum.

        After all, why throw in an established audience only to talk to less people?

        Unless I’m missing the genius part here, in which case I will apologise once it is clear to be what the master stroke is.

        • Mr Sackunkrak

          It’s a stroke of some sort, that’s for sure, just not a master one.

  • GregM

    I reckon we should have a ” who got banned the fastest” contest. I’m up for it.

  • blokeintakapuna

    It will be the www version of seven sharp… Called 1 blunt c*nt.

  • Chuck
  • Kacanga

    I think it will be too mucky

  • Mr_V4

    Real Estate can’t be going too well, odd seeing the market is booming. He’s had those same two listings up since mid 2012. One of them looks to be his Bachelors Pad.
