And the selfie stick winner is…

Here is a family reacting to dad using a selfie stick while out for a meal


Whaleoil received a few entries which were somewhat disturbing, and not fit for publication.  Thanks for the laughs, but sorry – they can’t be published.  They’ll just have to go into the Dirt Drawer with John Key’s dirt for a rainy day.

We did get a submission that is the most ballsy selfie.  Cactus Kate risking severe indigestion by making small talk with David “Tainted” Fisher.


Although she’s definitely in need of a selfie stick, her entry was previously published so it wasn’t specifically made for this contest.

Which leads to the winner – a suitably abstract entry.


Submitted by Mike from Clive in the Hawkes Bay, it is suitably disturbing.  It appears to have been taken in a bedroom, which makes it all the more unsettling.  I hate to speculate what the bit at the top is about.  If you do, please remember the commenting and moderation standards…

Mike, congrats – we’ll put the Selfie Stick into the mail today.

    I am not sure about the winning entry. Bit weird. It is however very disturbing seeing tainted David Fisher joking around with the so-called “enemy” as if all is forgiven all round. What exactly were they all laughing about? Perhaps the game of politics? Another reminder to me that I take politics far too seriously.

    And I hope Judith Collins is soon restored to her rightful position in parliament.

    Wow! That photo is really something.

    up the top is one finger outstretched and the other fingers clenched coming in from the edge of the frame – very clever.

      Are you sure Peter? I had visions of it being the ghost of Robert Muldoon giving birth to the next leader of the Labour Party.

  • Never in the dark…..

    What’s with those butterfly thingss?

    I’m looking at Cathy’s hairstyle and thinking she could really resemble Judith Collins in 10-15 years time.

    I’m not the judge but…. I’d give it to Selfie Dad. That’s exactly what my family do if I attempt something similar. He looks like he doesn’t give a hoot, either – just how it should be.

      Me too. My kids regularly got a fit of the horrors and as for the grandkids…….!!!
