Jumping the Shark

For every new house we build for homeless people, we have to bury 50 all blacks


As Auckland struggles with a housing crisis and the subsequent scramble to build enough homes at an affordable price, there’s a hidden cost.

An average house build in New Zealand creates up to five tonnes of waste. Auckland Council wants 422,000 new homes built in the city by 2040 – that’s up to 2.1 million tonnes of construction rubbish going straight to landfills around the region.

The phrase “Jump the shark” came from a TV Series where they  had run out of story ideas.  In Happy Days, the Fonz took to water skis and jumped over a shark.  It was so absurd and desperate, “Jumping the shark” has become embedded as a saying. Read more »

Panama Papers BREAKING: It wasn’t John Key, it was Elvis



I don’t know if I should laugh or cry.  The media already jumped the shark with this whole Panama Papers misfire.  What editor worth their salary would publish a story like the above on THE day that everyone was looking for hard proof that John Key was responsible for … something.   Read more »

I apologise. I was wrong about Duncan Garner yesterday.

Yesterday I posted that Duncan Garner had jumped the shark when he wanted everyone to come listen to the Chicken Man singing a song.

But I was wrong.

Today he managed to sink even lower.



Can someone please take pity on him and give him a call?   I think someone should tell him that Marriage Equality is done and dusted.

Drive time radio should be bringing you the news.  Not dragging the Family First attack lines back from the dead.

Jumping the shark and flogging a dead horse.

Merely weeks into the job Duncan Garner jumps the shark

Radio Live is slowly spiraling towards a self inflicted death.  They are getting stale and are bleeding talent.

Duncan Garner was to be the Great Hope in taking on the king of the drive-time slot, ZB’s Larry Williams.



I bet Garner gets home and takes two showers while he cries to himself for leaving his last job.



Jumping the Shark

Martyn Bradbury tries to appear smart but fails with this utterance:

The Labour Party have just been caught out again by the far quicker Green Party. Labour were quietly discussing quantitative easing at the very top of the Party, the Greens have jumped the shark by launching the debate yesterday on Q+A and have claimed their alternative economic policy spurs once again.

Martyn Bradbury clearly doesn’t know what jumping the shark means other wise he would never had used it in that manner.

Jumping the shark is an idiom created by Jon Hein that is used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. The phrase is also used to refer to a particular scene, episode or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of “gimmick” in a desperate attempt to keep viewers’ interest.

On the other hand he inadvertently placed the most accurate label yet on the Green’s and now Labour’s batshit crazy financial ideas. Next thing they will all be buying weird sunglasses and purple crimplene suits in their march to financial control of the country.

Shark Jumping at The Stranded

There is not much that can be said about the rabid fools at the paid lap-blog The Stranded. They have truly jumped the shark today, twice.

“Surgical mining” like “surgical bombing”. Sounds great, this is what Surgical Bombing looks like

Mining our national parks for the US war-machine

Not even Bomber would come up with ridiculous suppositions as that. It is clear that they hate Obama’s USA even more than Bush’s. This is the reason Labour languishes in the polls, with staffers thinking like this it is little wonder they are approaching the 20’s in polling.
