    When I was doing the humanitarian aid work I had these 3 jerseys and I ripped the sleeves off them one day and threw them from the back of the truck; kids were picking them up and using them as leg warmers.

    We don’t shop at the exclusive expensive designer stores.

    Reminds me of a story my dad once told me when he first came to NZ in the late 1940’s, four men used to rotate a shared suit. I guess you had to have a similar build and height to your friends.

    • fnjckg 14.1

      really like 2nd paragraph-“height and weight” (but then i see the potential of that Cunliffe chappie…)
      when he speaks in parliament, i listen, when other “front” benchees utter i get lost in thought again,
      hence poetry….
      ‘eres one,

      knot useful
      knot repair
      knot bind
      knot loose
      knot catch
      knot lace
      knot share
      knot replace
      knot strong
      knot carry
      knot tighten
      knot slip
      knot link
      knot fray
      (knot rot)

      knot round
      knot right
      need new knot
      not “ball of string” for “cats” to play with (flange)

  15. toad 15

    Hipkins:

    Brian: Please, please, please listen! I’ve got one or two things to say.
    The Crowd: Tell us! Tell us both of them!
    Brian: Look, you’ve got it all wrong! You don’t NEED to follow ME, You don’t NEED to follow ANYBODY! You’ve got to think for your selves! You’re ALL individuals!
    The Crowd: Yes! We’re all individuals!
    Brian: You’re all different!
