    Worst Super Hero name “Len Brown”. Well HE thinks he is a Super Hero.

    • Agree with that. And the best super-hero of all is Captain Underpants, which could also be applied to Len Brown; Captain Underpants-Around-His-Ankles!

    • CheesyEarWax

      Len Brown is Captain Fantastic? Not!

      • conwaycaptain

        Not according to Bevan

  • tarkwin

    There used to be a Captain Gonad. I think he was in an old surf mag.

  • Bart67

    Does anyone remember “The Tick”?

  • OhopeBeachBugger

    Call me a boring old fart, but this whole thing of superheroes is just so much utter twaddle. You won’t catch me watching a spiderman or batman ‘blockbuster’.

    • jaundiced

      You’re a boring old fart. Can’t wait for the next Avengers or Thor movie.

      • OhopeBeachBugger

        Couldn’t be arsed; I can’t wait for the next Coen Brothers movie.

  • CheesyEarWax

    Kick-Ass. The worst is Supergirl.

  • Alloytoo

    Arm Fall Off Boy (yes he is a real character)

  • Bunswalla

    Captain Obvious – as in this article “imploring” parents not to leave their helpless, non-swimming babies alone in the bath while you go and talk on the fucking phone for almost 8 minutes. Thanks for that love, and sorry for your loss, which was caused by you being unbelievably stupid, careless and criminally negligent. Shame the jury didn’t see it that way, but still.

    • Lion_ess

      “Never leave your baby in the bath alone”. No-one does Einstein, just you, you incredibly dopey cow.

    • In Vino Veritas

      Buns, concur with your view. What a complete egg. 13 months old for goodness sake, and she left it. Perhaps she should have “I am stupid” tattooed across her forehead. The parents she is imploring are in the very, very tiny minority of incredibly dumb people. Perhaps its Darwinism?

  • williamabong

    Now Auckland councillors have to address Len by his correct title do they have to use the full title of “Mayor Len you lying cheating c**t” or can it be abbreviated to “C**t”

    • James

      Surely his full title is LBIAFC?

      • Hazards001

        No. His full title is HWLBIAFC

    • Team ENZ

      he is to be addressed as ” Your Aldulterous ship “

  • Whafe

    Shame on the wanna be think they are super heros that is all things Campbell Live….
    Watched that so called intrusion interview with John Palino, am still in disgust and stunned by it….
    Kepp up the fight Cam & Team and the whole Whaleoil Army

  • jaundiced

    Billy Connelly on religion

    • Col

      That is so bloody funny, thanks.

    • Whanga_Cynic

      I don’t cry very often on a Friday afternoon but that was priceless. Thanks.

  • Pissedoffyouth

    Watercooler lifting woman – because in my office that’s a mans job apparently

    • LabTested

      One time I peeled off one to many seals & dumped 5 liters on the office carpet. Now I leave it to the W-CLW superheros.

      • Quinton Hogg

        Thanks for the idea.
        the next time I lift the water cooler will be the last.

  • Kimbo

      • tarkwin

        Have you tried Fritz the cat? Definitely worth a bash, Ralph Bashski was a real thinking bloke who put great depth into his cartoons.

        • Kimbo

          Ha, Fritz the Cat, first animal cartoon porno, same era, hard to beat :-)

  • GazzW

    The wowser in Dunedin who put the kibosh on the Elm Grove PTA selling wine at their annual fundraiser. He must be stuck in a 1950s timewarp.

    • Dick Brown

      Yes, I saw this last night; rotten, unhelpful and mean decision and now it’s Case Law.

      RIP freedom

  • OhopeBeachBugger

    Captain Underpants. Just whack your jocks on your head and your superpowers include not being able to see through the Y-front….

  • Dick Brown

    Superman for me is probably the worst name I can think of – if you created the character today you’d be laughed off the internet and labelled a misogynist cis male asshole.

    Best if probably Ozymandius – Has a Old Gods ring to it and once you read the book and realise he doesn’t have super powers at all it opens up a whole new realm of imagination.

    Also, what does WO think of this:

    TL:DR Aunty Helen visits the Future King of England for a cup of tea then calls him irrelevant to the media sparking yet another unhelpful debate on Republicanism

    • Agent BallSack

      She is there in a role as UN blah blah whatever the fuck her title is yet shes speaking on behalf of NZers. Guess who really still runs the Labour party.

      • Chancey

        course she does, she popped over had a word M street and then pfft bye bye shearer

    • Team ENZ

      What a rude bitch! She must remember she is no longer relevant to the NZ public and thus does NOT speak for us here.. We will decide for ourselves if we are going republic or not, It is not in her place to say NZ will go republic.. WTF!

  • williamabong

    Len Brown must rate as the greastest name for a real life super-hero, after all he is so good at dodging bullets.

    • Team ENZ

      Teflon Lennie…every crap seems to slide off him…

  • Mrbadger

    Large Breasted Wet T-Shirt Pneumatic Drill Girl or anyone from the Viz publication.

    • Bunswalla

      e.g. Brown Bottle, Black Bag, Buster Gonad and his Unfeasibly Large Testicles,

      • Dick Brown

        yes yes yes lovin’ this Viz love over here.

        • tarkwin

          I always had a soft spot for The Fat Slags and Sid the Sexist.

          • Dick Brown

            Modern Parents and Doctor Poo for me

          • Bunswalla

            Tits oot for the lads

    • williamabong

      Problem now is I can’t find a seller for Viz, and I miss my fix of pure humour.
      Does anyone know where I can get it now as my tame bookshop in ChCh got levelled.

  • 4077th

    One has to wonder about the motivation of the Horrid when you see articles like this.

    Why is it relevant that a local resident who bought the house for her sister who IS a citizen who happens to now live in China? It smacks of Winston Firsts “no more Asians” bullshit arguments and a subtle attempt and bashing “overseas” (Chinese) buyers AGAIN! There is no problem with Chinese buyers there is a problem with uninformed racist bigots perpetuated by this type of stereotyping.

    This story has no relevance other than someone purchased a house that was part of a TV show. Of course they haven’t seen the show it’s not broadcast around the rest of the world. I would also wager that at least 40% of people in New Zealand haven’t seen it (mostly because it’s utter mindless tripe no better than shitland street). Another example of the Horrid manufacturing a story to create comment and outrage.

    Sorry for the shouting! Just grinds my gears…

    • Kimbo

      Just the left winged media beating up on innocents for a reaction. Gawd that paper is a piece of shit.

    • Bunswalla

      No worries Hawkeye – war is hell.

  • Ronnie Chow

    John Key , hands down .

  • 4077th

    Grunthos the Flatulent..Vogon Poet Master.

  • In Vino Veritas

    Unions are nearly extinct in the private sector in NZ. The public sector contains most of the union members in NZ. Union’s supposedly protect vulnerable workers from rapacious employers. Public sector workers are employed by the Government who are representatives of the people. The people are sometimes workers in the Public sector. Unions are protecting these workers from themselves? And are protecting these workers from the majority wishes of the people? Is the Union movement saying that the people of NZ are rapacious when the Government elected by them sets the wage and salary rates for the public sector?
    How does this work?

  • Jman

    Gay man and Midget man from the movie Blankman

  • Toryboy

    That headline is confusing.

    Is it from 2015 and referring to Minister of Education Chris Hipkins? (his plan to teach 5 year olds about gay sex having backfired)

  • cows4me

    I see Obummercare is a roaring success, 310,000,000 people and 6 sign up on the first day.

  • johnbronkhorst

    I see lennie brown wants to fine aucklanders who don’t recycle properly.
    See red ken livingstone ex mayor of London if you want to see how that turns out.

    • Steve (North Shore)

      Well you know where to dump your rubbish now, right in his fucking driveway

  • unitedtribes

    Was just thinking of whom would be very jealous of Len Brown. Peter Dunne. Brown achieved what Dunne could only dream of. I think

  • Steve (North Shore)

    Remember this liar
