  1. Col 1

    As he revealed the full extent of his real plans for Auckland, John finally realised just how bonkers Rodney really was.

    • Pascal's bookie 1.1

      “That’s what I said, yes. Pixies will do all the cleaning jobs. You know the little blue ones, about so big. Pixies.”

  2. principessa 2

    This is the size of the budget we have to pull this thing off.

  3. r0b 3

    “Who’s the more foolish – the fool, or the fool who follows him?”

  4. vto 4

    Inside a Key thought bubble…


  5. sally 5

    “Yeah, those $14 million tiles are about this big – same as John has in his pool house”

  6. Bill 6

    Excitingly, we calculate John will stay awake this long before finally nodding off completely in preparation for the next election.

  7. Akldnut 7

    Tranasitional costs?
    Miniscule I tell you, miniscule!

  8. Craig Glen Eden 8

    Hide: I clapped my hands like this and the councils were all gone along with all their assets.

    Key: Bugger me is that Richard Worth

  9. Akldnut 9

    What! Railraoding democracy?
    I can do it because my cajunes are this big!!!

  10. To the right 10

    The left just aren’t funny.

    • MikeG 10.1

      Was that an attempt at a joke from the right?

    • Tigger 10.2

      To the right – you’re just disappointed at the small number of sexually themed jokes.

      I can tell you how a right wing blog would have done this. The first caption would have been a joke about Key thinking ‘if that’s how big Rodney’s penis is then I’d better lube up good’ and the every other post would have consisted of ‘LOL’ and various comments about how much they hate ‘bummers’ or wondering whether Key being Jewish is circumcised.

  11. Pat 11

    This is how far Mallard got trying to do something about the Waterfront.

  12. Maynard J 12

    John’s dissatisfaction of Rodney’s “fishing” analogies had become unbearable.

  13. Andrew B 13

    Dear god. What’s he going to say this time?

  14. rave 14

    We lost the World Cup because he didnt have his fingers up.

  15. Craig Glen Eden 15

    Hide I have ten Fingers I counted them this morning.

    Key Where is Bill when I need him?

  16. Ray G 16

    Yeah so there I was looking for the gerbil Gerry reckoned he’s sat on, and it was a pretty awful sight. There was a bicycle, a briefcase, and that guy that went missing from Bellamy’s – but no sign of the gerbil.
    I think maybe Gerry was having me on. My hands stunk for weeks.

  17. Ianmac 17

    I do like Rod’s tie. I wonder if he will like mine? Perhaps if I wore the one my son gave me. Hey Rodders!”

    Hey catchpa will do: “Margaretta checks.” Ha!

  18. SMSD 18

    When I’m finished, the city council will have this many staff.

  19. scotty 19

    yip sir roger sticks both his arms up my arse,and we perform a little ditty called”puppetry of the dick head”.

  20. The Voice of Reason 20

    Rodders: And John tells me caught a fish this big in Taupo.
    Jonners: Wish I was still there …

  21. The Voice of Reason 21

    .. and Richard Worth’s is only this big, so John sacked him for false advertising …

  22. Doug 22

    Rodney explaining the latest Roy Morgan Poll, and how he is gaining in popularity.

  23. gingercrush 23

    How long till my head looks like that


    Sprout I know this is a left-wing blog but one of these days you have to give us a caption contest with a leftie in it.

  24. exbrethren 24

    The best way to discipline the little brats is to smack them from both sides of the head like this.

  25. So I say’s to John here, You take both palms, (the non hairy side of the hand), and you rub rub rub, there, all clean. I learnt that in bible class.

  26. Rex Widerstrom 26

    Look, it’s not complicated. I’ll be playing Curly, John here is Moe, and we figure we put a fright wig on Richard Worth and he could pass for Larry.

  27. Ron 27

    Jeez- Crusher is right. His neck IS wider than his head.

  28. burt 28

    Yes I do know ‘transitional’ has more than 10 letters and not everyone understands what it means.

    • Akldnut 28.1

      or how many more than 10
      or which two they are
      or for that matter how spell it…….Dohl

  29. Norma 29

    Why did I let Rhino loose on Auckland? If he doesn’t shut up, I’ll have to go back to money trading in 2011.

  30. logie97 30

    oh for f@*k s sake Wodney, you’ve taken your eye off the ball again!

  31. Daveski 31

    Richard was THAT big so that’s why he had to go.

  32. Did we really put this guy in charge of Auckland Local Government review? Who is responsible for this? Why wasn’t I told? Did I read that paper?

  33. Dan 33

    There goes my future! I didn’t know Rodney and Roger were so unpopular!

  34. scotty 34

    my latest idea to increase productivity is to steal public assets then charge usurious rates for the use of those assets. brilliant eh

  35. Irascible 35

    Yes John I can assure you there are no skeletons in Richard’s closet and there are none in mine. Yeah. Right (wing )

  36. Fred 36

    “Mine is this big, well it would be if I had one”

  37. Mr Anderson 37

    We were this close to getting away with this super-city nonsense — if it wasn’t for those pesky, concerned citizens. Isn’t that right John.. John… John…?

  38. ak 38

    Repressed psychopathic urges in deeply flawed males often present only on the left of the face and can be detected by covering the right-hand features of candid portraits, as in the now-classic “terror-murderous intent” study above. The consequent tragic events and demise of the ill-fated Key-Hide government confirmed the theory and led to yet another Nobel prize for the illustrious professor ak.
    Journal of psychology: vol.11, 2013

  39. “I have long dream’d of such a kind of man,
    So surfeit-swell’d, so old and so profane;
    But, being awaked, I do despise my dream.”

  40. Fergie 40

    “Oh my god so it was Rodney that stole my shiny gold tie, all I could find to wear this morning was this once with funny “pinko” spots on it. Is someone trying to tell me something ? “

  41. Hilary 41

    What IS that thing crawling out of Rodney’s ear?

  42. jenny 42

    Just watch this.
    I just clap my hands and he jumps.

  43. RedLogix 43

    Look a privatised WaterCare Services will be so efficient, this empty glass will always be full to overflowing.

  44. Spectator 44

    “I see a fly’s just landed on him. Should I? Well, it worked for that other guy…”

  45. Adrian 45

    “You know, he does look like a mudguard, shiny on top and shitty underneath”.

  46. Hide: “How could that be interpreted as an ‘El Duce” salute”?
    Key: “Only digging yourself deeper, Benny.”

  47. Jan 47

    Mr “Great Antennae but No Compass” groans inwardly as Mr “Counter-factual” frightens the horses (again).

  48. burt 48

    Key thinking quietly to himself.

    ‘Spock was right, letting the Borg manage the city transformation will make me the laughing stock of the fleet commanders.

  49. burt 49

    Photoshop people at the standard.

    I’m sure you can do something with this;


  50. Hilary 50

    How did I get into this mess?

  51. rod 51

    Key, “I can’t see what women see in the gormless prick’

  52. rod 52
