    Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.”

    Three unidentified guests who visited the aquarium were asked to leave because they were scaring the fish and other guests with the vacuous grins they had plastered on their faces.

    The aquarium owners raised an alert to the police and the three (pictured above) were arrested on the way out for possession and use of the popular synthetic highs, ‘A Brighter Future’, ‘Rockstar Economy’, ‘An Economic Surplus Exists’ and ‘It is all Labour’s Fault’ which have now been banned due to the damage they are causing the country.

    • Enough is Enough 34.1

      Helen Clark was Prime Minister for three terms with strong opular support throughout. She would have been Prime Minister for four terms had it not been for the Corporate Media’s corrupt witch hunt of Winston Peters.

      So no he is not the most popular Prime Minister. He is without doubt the most hated and certainly the most incompentent.

      As for the bloggers I think you will find they fudge their numbers somewhat
