The Lamington Files, Ctd – The Lamington Attack

Via the tip-line

An oldie but goodie from 2009. Witchy Wendyl’s column rant attack on the Lamington has seen this sent in through the tip line. Remember the Mt Albert by-election that David Shearer won?


John Boscowen clearly wasn’t bothered by the lamington.

    Len got lamingtoned at a council meeting at Auckland uni a while back too, that was funny.

    • Why am I only now discovering this is a thing?

        It’s new to me as well Pete, it’s a mystery.

        • Waste of a real cream strawberry lamington if you ask me. Yes, there, I said it. I feel no shame.

    I think it was Confucious teaching a pupil.
    The conversation went like this
    con…If a cockroach crosses your path, do you step on it?
    Pupil…I don’t understand the question.
    Confucious….If you step on it, you would be lending it more importance than it is due or has earned.
    For those illiterate ones visiting here from “the standard”.
