    And then your plane flies away to Australia!…

  2. weka 2

    Why hasn’t someone told those kids they shouldn’t be smiling?

  3. Tracey 3

    2014, with my knighthood in my pocket I am outta here!

  4. vto 4

    Yeah man, I’m sure doing my best to make sure you lot stay down here and us lot stay up there.

  5. Te Reo Putake 5

    “… and I said “No, Gerry, Sgt Shultz salutes like this”
     
    ” Yes, its possum fur, akcherly … and if I distract you by waving my arms, you’ll never spot the join”.
     
    ” Well, let me show you … my left hand is where I used to be in the polls, my right is where I am now”.
     
    ” … and then I said, “Usain, what you really need is a styley celebration at the end of the race. He was sooooo grateful to me that he was akcherly speechless”

  6. tc 6

    Hey Mr PM sir can you go away now as between the preparation, staging and protective services induction we’ve no lunchtime left.

    Stop moving and listen to what my dad who works at AFFCO thinks of you.

  7. fabregas4 7

    My left hand is pointing at how high my bank balance is and my right is your families income for the rest of your life …hahahhahaha!

  8. Blue 8

    After a visit from David Shearer, PM puts the fun back in the room.

    • mike e 8.1

      The National debt is heading that way and you kids are going to have to pay for it ha ha.

  9. Ben 9

    Prime Minister John Key explaining the change in net worth of the top 1% of New Zealanders since his government took office in 2008.

  10. Not content to merely steal the nations assets, John Key is caught stealing Usain Bolts’ victory stance

  11. Ianmac from Vietnam 11

    “Hey Pee Em, whoever you are. This is our patch and we think you should pee off and annoy someone else! Please.”

  12. And while you kids wonder why you are inheriting a hollowed out husk of a nation, I’ll be flying off to Hawaii.

  13. felix 13

    Of course these clothes are appropriate – that’s why it’s called Tie Chi.

  14. Blue 14

    A cutesy photo op with brown kids? It’s not even election year!

  15. brybry 15

    “Your quaint little native dance was ok, but let me show you how we do it in Hawaii. ‘Course I usually where a Lei for this.”

  16. felix 16

    I wouldn’t try to get between me and the camera unless you want an elbow to the ribs, kid.

  17. Richard Down South 17

    Time to get on a plane to the US and watch a baseball game

  18. rod 18

    This is the amount of bullshit I have dished out to New Zealanders since I became PM and I am not finished yet, because a lot of dickheads lap it up.

  19. Tom Gould 19

    “Mimicking Usain Bolt, the Prime Minister tells kids how fast his bank balance has grown since he took charge.”

  20. mike 20

    “See I’m this rich now, but once I collect my check from Goldman Sachs for what I’ve done to this country I’ll be this rich!”

    Oh and I watched the video. Don’t. I won’t be able to forget.

  21. Dr Terry 21

    Prime Minister gate-crashes yet another performance.

  22. captain hook 22

    I’m just about to bolt for it!

  23. Mike Boon 23

    This is my big Hitler, and this is my little one…

  24. Carol 24

    This is what you do with teachers who fail your assignments because your policies arguments are not supported by valid and reliable evidence: hang them out to dry.

  25. Georgecom 25

    no, no, really, economic growth under the National Government will do this

  26. Tazirev 26

    They put this hand further up to move my head, lips and arms and this one to move my legs and make me bend over

  27. Labourrules 27

    We really love you Mr Key, we hope you get elected next election!!!!

  28. ropata 28

    JK: “I can take twelve kids in a fight! I did this cool online survey that proves it!”
    http://www.howmanyfiveyearoldscouldyoutakeinafight.com/

    • Labourrules 28.1

      Haha good one What a loser Mr Key is. Remember when Mr Shearer beat all those kids in the running race and got third place. He is much better than Mr Key at sporting events against kids

      • TightyRighty 28.1.1

        The profound stupidity of your comment has made my day.

        • ropata 28.1.1.1

          I can’t tell if labourrules is supposed to be humour, sarcasm, or utter cluelessness…

          • lprent 28.1.1.1.1

            Cluelessness IMHO. Pattern for this guy is an occasional semi-troll who makes some inane comments on some topic under a handle made up for the occasion and then disappears for quite some time. Most of the comments tend to be ambiguous in terms of political stance, but tend towards the right. I define it as being heavily influenced by the stirring stupidity of talkback.

            I tend to keep an eye on him to see if he drifts into complete dumbarse. However I suspect that he has learnt that lesson of consequences on this site in the past. Doesn’t pick up warnings.

  29. Akldnut 29

    This is how a white man tries to do nesian moves.

  30. BLiP 30

    .

    See that? When I move the left hand down but keep the wrist up, the coin disappears up the sleeve but everyone is still looking at the right hand . . . what? Oh, you saw that. Sorry. Let me try again. Give me another coin.

  31. mkesh 31

    Oh I know I’m supposed to look fierce when performing a haka, but this is my “smile and wave” haka.

  32. Tracey 32

    Let’s flash mob this homies, it’s called “The Trickle Up”

  33. redfred 33

    “When this whole shit house goes up in flames I’m of to sunny Hawaii”

  34. Chris 34

    It’s a while since I made an absolute dick of myself,so I thought I’d give it another go. AND IT WORKED!!!

  35. ropata 35

    Worship me puny mortals.
    I made $50 million, met Obama, won the Rugby World Cup, and won Olympic gold for NZ.
    I am Usain Bolt’s father.

  36. Glg 36

    So I’ve got this party akshully and I’m paying that Bolt fulla to stand in my fountain like this! Oh the Parnell crowds gunna luv this.

  37. fnjckg 37

    NZ IDOL

  38. joe90 38

    Well I was walking down the street

    Just a having a think

    When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink

    He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise

    He had a pick up truck and the devil’s eyes

    He stared at me and I felt a change

    Time meant nothing, never would again

  39. Phil 39

    You have to fly out of here if you want a job when you leave school.
    But don’t worry everyone else will be behind you on the next plane, sort of like this…..

  40. Feargal 40

    Over there child! There’s 177,000 jobs in Australia. Just as I promised in the last Election.

  41. Jenny 41

    And if you just turn this knob here on its right shoulder, its arms come up.

  42. AS 42

    “I don’t want you in school. Get out, we need cheap labour”
