    Key practices opening wide and swallowing ahead of his meeting with Warners.

    Did Bill bake this? It tastes of bullshit

  3. Lazy Susan 3

    I said “Let THEM eat cake” but thanks anyway that’s yummy

  4. Zorr 4

    Hey guys, can I get a doggy bag? I didn’t bring Gerry…

  5. Tom Gould 5

    Key gets in some practice for the ‘$30 million a plate’ Warners dinner.

  6. George.com 6

    John Key discards any plan to make the cake bigger and concentrates on eating it instead.

    Whats with his little finger anyway?

      Whats with his little finger anyway?

      I am a former member of the working-class who got rich by rorting my fellow countrymen, and rose by fair means and foul to become prime-minister. Part of my illusion of grandeur is the cocking of the little finger when I sup and sip, which is visible evidence of my new-found acceptance into the upper echelons of society. After all, I have had tea with my very dear friend Queen Elizabeth (she told me last time we were together to call her Liz) many times now.

        to be utterly accurate, the finger needs to be slightly crooked, relaxed. if you hold the finger stiff, it says to the truuly naice people that you are a pretender trying to emulate your superiors, and failing… or that you are so overawed by being in the presence of the elite that you are unable to concentrate on the finer points of etiquette..

        his finger looks about the same diameter as his nostrils… you may have uncovered something here…

    “I hate pretending to eat food.”

  9. Murray 9

    Once again the fanboys and fangirls from the left post a picture of their nemesis. The man who strikes fear into their loins.
    Meanwhile the hapless Phil Goff, The Comical Ali of the left slides deeper into oblivion.

    • D-D-D-Damn! 9.1

      Hit the road, Murray, and don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more, hit the road, Murray, and don’t you come-a-back-a no more.

      Murray: What you say ?!!!

      Hit the road, Murray, and don’tcha come backa no more.

      Murray: Oh Baby, oh Baby, doncha treat me this-a-way, I’m happy to admit that I’ve got fuck all to say, and I’m happy to concede that all my shit is Farrar-fed, but I’m begging you Baby please don’t kick me off this thread !!!

      Tough shit, Hit the road, Murr, and dontcha come backa no more.

      Murray: Well, I guess if you say so, I better pack my things and go.

      That’s right, hit the road, Murr, and FUCK-OFF to kiwi-blog.

      Murray: WHAT YOU SAY ?!!!!!!!!!

        In the twilight glow I see her
        Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.
        As we kissed good-bye and parted,
        I knew we’d never meet again.

        Love is like a dying ember.
        Where only memories remain.
        Through the ages I’ll remember-
        Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.

        Now my hair has turned to silver.
        All my life I’ve loved in vain.
        I can see her star in heaven.
        Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.

        Someday when we meet up yonder,
        We’ll stroll hand in hand again.
        In a land that knows no parting-
        Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.

      To be fair I’d say Colonial Viper is the chemical ali of the left

  11. mel 11

    Who gives a toss about our inflation rate… I can still afford to have the cream!

  12. tc 12

    Geez I could shit on the table and they’d lap it up I’m so awesum but the CT script says I gotta do this without Bennett around to mop up the leftovers……the things we do eh.

  13. rd 13

    See fran ,I do have gravitas.

  14. Cactus Kate 14

    There’s a strawberry on this, wonder if it qualifies for a GST exemption? Must check the detail on that.

    • Ianupnorth 14.1

      The picture is in the USA; it is probably an artificial genetically modified strawberry. Plus I don’t think the US tax essentials like food and fuel.

    • bbfloyd 14.2

      i didn’t know you were a labour supporter kate…. well done! you do have brain after all..

    • mik e 14.3

      CK I thought we had got past using politically incorrect terms to describe people

  15. SHG 15

    “When you have a 50% lead in the preferred-PM polls, you can eat whatever the fuck you like”

  16. Postie 16

    My mouth was open in the same way with at Warners meeting in Wellington last year but I did’nt have cake in it!

  17. Jason 17

    Embarrassed officials watch in horror as Key regurgitates food to demonstrate that National thinks it has a solution for feeding the poor. Back home, Greens dismayed at how some idiots haven’t quite understood their recycling message.

  18. Tel 18

    Maître d’ Ah, good afternoon, sir; and how are we today?
    Mr. Keyosote Better.
    Maître d’ Better?
    Mr. Keyosote Better get a bucket, I’m gonna throw up.

  19. William Joyce 19

    “Now I know why Hitler would never allow himself to be filmed eating”

  20. Adders 20

    There’s nothing NZ Prime Minister John Key likes more when he’s travelling overseas alone than to get stuck into a good spread.

  21. Treetop 21

    Luxury food item on a shopping list.

  22. felix 22

    Fattening? I can provide you with a different nutritionist who’ll say this is a tofu salad!

  23. her 23

    It got Rupert Murdoch on the telly.

  24. randal 24

    mmmmm, plastic cherries are better than carboard sausage rolls.

  25. jackal 25

    Even humble pie wont dent this groomed national party ego
