Leaked correspondence from the Russian Embassy to the NZ Prime Minister

*Satire

Greetings Comrade Jacinda,

I must say what a pleasure it was to receive your phone call yesterday requesting information regarding the preposterous suggestion that the New Zealand Russian Embassy could be harbouring spies. And as it was confirmed by me yesterday, the answer is, of course, we do not. I must say I liked your measured approach, so unlike the rest of the Western World. I understand that those countries who expelled our diplomats hadn’t even asked their Russian Embassies the obvious questions, unlike you. All they had to do was pick up the phone and this sorry mess could have been avoided. But Comrade, not all leaders are as enlightened as you.

Face of the day

Comedian and YouTuber Nicole Arbour:

Today’s face of the day is a comedian who posts Youtube videos. Like all comedians she makes fun of people and does satire. This week we featured her video that made fun of fat people amongst other topics in our password protected section. I have watched the video and like a lot of comedy it has a serious message behind the jokes. She makes pertinent points that it is all about health and wanting the people we love to live a long life and that obesity ( not love handles ) gives people life threatening diseases and health problems. She now is facing calls for her to apologise for making fun of fat people. She has refused. Comedy requires stereotypes to be funny, comedy is bits of truth wrapped in humour. In today’s Politically correct world comedy is under attack.

If you agree with me that’s nice but what I really want to achieve is to make you question the status quo. Look between the lines, do your own research. Do not be a passive observer in this game we call life.

Oh the outrage! John Key told a lame joke about a filthy pedo

The left wing are all enraged because John Key told a joke about the scumbag pedo who has fled the country to Chile and now on to Brazil.

Prime Minister John Key made a joke about fugitive Phillip John Smith, saying he would let Chile’s President know she may not want to “invite [him] round for lunch”.

Smith, who was jailed for life for murder and child abuse in 1996, flew to Chile using a passport obtained in his birth name – Phillip Traynor – while on temporary release from prison.

Chilean authorities have confirmed that Smith then took a flight to Brazil, but Mr Key was unaware of this when he made reference to the killer while at a press conference in Beijing yesterday.

He laughed as he told reporters he would alert Chilean President Michelle Bachelet about Smith when they meet at the Apec summit today.

“I’ll just let her know there’s someone who could be out there from New Zealand that you may not want to invite round for lunch.”

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.

Do you answer calls from unknown numbers?

Go on, have a laugh

NZ on Screen have placed a nice range of home grown comedy on-line for us all to go all watery-eyed about.  Some of it is cutting political satire (especially back then) the likes of which we haven’t seen since the ’90s.  Somehow lampooning our politicians on TV is no longer the done thing.   And more is the pity.

Unfortunately NZ on Screen doesn’t allow embedding videos, so for a taste of ’70 political satire, check this out.  You’ll be treated to a wholesome sex education lesson, just in case you need a refresher.  (Hint:  Make sure the chair has cooled down)

Or just fill your boots.

fffjjyy
