How Humanity Stole The Power Of Saying Awful Things And Then Acting All Wronged When People Get Shocked By Them From The Gods
(I mean, surely that picture is worth a thousand words of you reading the words. After that you can make up your own mind.)

From The Hood : Carry On Captaining
Oh hello. Scanner Technician Davis. To what do I owe the pleasure?
You think we’re what?
Oh, pish. This vessel has been travelling along smoothly for generations – particularly smoothly in the last few years though I say so myself – and I happen to know we have never once been hit by an asteroid, so put your mind at rest. Good day. More>>
And on Scoop:
Colin Craig Buys Into Civilian Party
At a surprise press conference this morning, Conservative Party leader Colin Craig and Civilian Party leader Ben Uffindell announced plans to form an alliance to contest the 2014 General Election...
Asked whether an alliance between an iconoclastic mocker of the status quo with a rich white man who personifies everything that's ludicrous about the establishment seemed unlikely, Craig explained that "apparently that's the way these things normally work". More>>

“You, of course, are wronged.
It is unfair. Promoting New Zealand enterprise is the government’s job. Yet suddenly speaking favourably of a company’s product is wrong. Just because your husband happens to be a director.
As if he could possibly get any benefit from that. As if any benefit he could get from that could match that supreme joy of being chosen as your life-mate. More>>
On Monday, the royals landed in New Zealand. Stepping out of the plane, the Duke of Cambridge was resplendent in his red Catherine Walker coat and matching pillbox hat by Gina Foster. He was also wearing a diamond and platinum silver fern brooch, on loan from the Queen. Baby George won the heart of the nation by exhibiting his impression of a disappointed Winston Churchill. More>>
I’m still not sure why the PM never engages – whether it really is because of the bottom feeders and trolls, or because he doesn’t want the Internet to see him acting like he does in Question Time, or because he hasn’t worked out how to charge twenty dollars per response on behalf of the National Party. But it struck me he must have a huge backlog, which doesn’t seem right. In New Zealand we’re proud of how accessible our politicians are.
So I thought I should have a go at answering them. I am doing this in John Key’s capacity as Prime Minister. I figured that what with all those fundraisers where he’s not in his capacity as Prime Minister, he wouldn’t mind me borrowing it for a bit. In that spirit, let’s clear up some of those unanswered questions. I thought I’d start with some of mine. More>>

Werewolf: The Masque Of The Blue Line
It was a good party, up to a point.
The trouble started with the idea of seeing whose costume was scariest. We decided to hold a competition: a series of one-on-one eliminations ending with one super-scary winner. Like with the Act Party.

From The Hood: Armchairs At Dawn
“Wastage!” – Granger spoke the word like a man who was settling the argument once and for all. Interesting because, far from arguing with him, I had hardly sat down and opened my newspaper. To tell the truth I hadn’t noticed he was awake. More>>
From Werewolf 42, an Aussie election special.
By the way the image there is something Gordon found on the Internet, and is no relation.
Also: come see me in The Young and the WITless 7: Small Town, Big Hearts. We're at the new Fringe Bar every Wednesday. Except for the one that's at Bats.
