    Mr Potato head

  2. mickysavage 2

    I think his candidate is going to suck the kumara (stolen off twitter) …

  3. logie97 3

    “Meet my relation, the Kumara.”

  4. repateet 4

    All the way back from Korea to suck a kumara!

  5. Ad 5

    “Ah, Spawn of Satan, you have done well my child.”

  6. Jesus Wept 6

    Rooted vegetable meets sweet potato.

  7. It might look like a kumara, smell like a kumara, and taste like a kumara but I tell you it is NOT a kumara, it is an anti-American lie perpetrated by the loony left.

    • Anne 7.1

      Everyone thinks it’s a kumara but it’s not. It’s got a small screen and I can type in somebody’s name and watch what they’re doing. I used to watch Dotcom. The NSA gave it to me.

  8. Clemgeopin 8

    Osburn’s Kumara smells so good!

  9. McFlock 9

    Soon-to-be lame duck hams it up with a kumara.

    Meanwhile, the nats’ last best hope for political relevance attempts a photo-op, but misses by a mere 100 degrees.

    Minimum wage worker forced to give up tea break while candidate yammers on…

  10. r0b 10

    If you stare into the kumara, the kumara will stare back into you.

  11. Clemgeopin 11

    Key kisses kumara symbolising National’s butt kissing culture.

  12. Ad 12

    Finally, a National voter in Northland!

  13. joe90 13

    Nats suck the kumera in Northland.

  14. Ad 14

    Well Mr Osborne, you are about to become what is known in the north as lunch.

  15. Draco T Bastard 15

    Away with the fairies

  16. rawshark-yeshe 16

    wonder if I will be able to get these in Hawaii ??

    • Murray Rawshark 16.1

      Yes he will. Kumara is an important part of the Hawaiian diet. FJK wouldn’t be kissing it if he thought it was indigenous.

  17. fender 17

    Stoned PM mistakes kumera for an ice-cream.

    Winston drives PM to substance abuse.

    Team Key suck the kumera in Northland.

    Key pulls out his butt plug in an attempt to prove it don’t stink.

  18. Formerlyonthefb 18

    I wonder if they’ll notice me sucking this kumera like my american lover? I miss you OBAMA and our man on fudgewit love!

  19. One Anonymous Bloke 19

    PM denies eating unborn voters.

  20. ianmac 20

    Well my fans have deserted me but this kumera is cuddly.

  21. Skinny 21

    Calling Mike Sabin please get off the stage… you suck the kumera in Northland. Yeah fuck you too Winston and your Bill.

  22. key:.’look ossy..!.’it looks a lot like stephen joyce..!’..

  23. b waghorn 23

    We probably had more chance of winning if you were our candidate little kumara.

  24. osborne checks out his electoral-coffin:

    ‘will it be big enough..?’

  25. key – off his tits – thinks it’s a microphone..

  26. key does a very bad version of ‘stand by me’..

  27. key picks out a sex-toy to take back to his hotel…

  28. Nckfan 28

    Maybe we should have nominated you as our candidate.

  29. redfred 29

    Suck this NZ Ive been fucking you proper

  30. Stuart Munro 30

    Why couldn’t ‘Obspawn be more like you?

    If the voters found him tasty
    if he wasn’t quite so pasty
    if he improved with roasting he’d be choice!
    and he wouldn’t strain the wrist of poor old Joyce…

  31. Macro 31

    Well that’s one photo op that has completely backfired! lol
    I wonder if Key will go to kiss kumeras ever again?

    Key mistakes kumera for baby.

  32. kumera bong proves popular with dope

  33. Thinkerr 33

    Thanks, folks.

    I’ve had a couple of requests, but I’m not going to leave right now, I’m going to stay and do one more song…

    “Regrets, I’ve had a few…”

  34. Stuart Munro 34

    We don’t have anything like these back on Sirius…

  35. Clemgeopin 35

    “Ha, ha! No, I can’t tell you more about my lovely kumara because we have managed to get a super duper suppression order. It shall remain a secret!”

  36. Tel 36

    One of these lies in sods and the other lies for sods.

  37. Jiminy Cricket 37

    Woman with pink hair shows Mr Osborn where he’ll start work on Monday.

    • McFlock 37.1

      holy shit, that’s right – I think it’s been reported that he quit his council job.

      Most people I know who became candidates and it would have been a conflict took a leave of absence for a few months, they weren’t so assured of victory that they quit. Ok, a couple were no-chancers, but some had a realistic shot. And Osbourne might have been so convinced of his entitlement that he actually quit.

  38. Clemgeopin 38

    I have always longed for a kumara like this.

  39. Jiminy Cricket 39

    Reptilian shapeshifter accidentally lets tongue slip out

  40. Jiminy Cricket 40

    Kumara derangement syndrome

  41. Clemgeopin 41

    How many kumaras does it take to win Northland?

  42. Paul Campbell 42

    It wont turn MY hair red, I dye it black

  43. Paul Campbell 43

    Which end do you talk into?

  44. gsays 44

    “i know its a tuber, where do you blow?”

  45. Hayden 45

    Mark? Mark? Speak to me Mark!

  46. philj 46

    ” I close my eyes and dream of mmm …. me, and Money!”

  47. philj 47

    PM prefers kumara fantasy to meeting human beings

  48. Clemgeopin 48

    You seem smarter than THAT fellow!

  49. Sable 49

    I love anything that comes from America.

  50. Steve Cain 50

    It’s the mystic kumara-head groove thing

  51. Clemgeopin 51

    “Pussy for sale! Pussy for sale! Pussy for sale!!”

    “Where, where where?”

    “Nah, just kidding! Kumara awkshully!”

  52. BLiP 52

    John Key ponders whether a kumara might not have been a better candidate.

    ( What is it with John Key and sniffing veggies —> https://youtu.be/vTE7EEixKvE )

  53. Chrys Berryman 53

    “ahhhhh the humble kumara,a gift from those nice brown people we peacefully colonised all those years ago”

  54. sirpat 54

    JEZUS!!!……no wonder it hurt when I walked

  55. Clemgeopin 55

    I’ll smell your kumara, you smell mine!

  56. Treetop 56

    Key’s face will probably be redder than the kumara on Sunday.

    Osborne will be in the bin with the kumaras.

  57. georgecom 57

    John Key meets Nationals next candidate for the Northland seat

  58. Felate Sheo 58

    Looks like he’s experienced in the act he is about to perform on the kumera.
    {Guess he got good at it during soliciting the TPPA.}

  59. Ecosse_Maidy 59

    CEO Keys personally welcomed each and every member to his handpicked cabinet

  60. Ecosse_Maidy 60

    As a gesture of fair play, the Australian Cricket authorities allowed Keys to check through all the Cricket Balls that had been allocated to the Black Caps…..Keys could see nothing wrong and passed them all fit to use.

  61. Ecosse_Maidy 61

    John Key croons into the microphone …………..it’s all over now baby blue!!!!!!

  62. Ecosse_Maidy 62

    Yes!!!!! thought Genrillisomo Key,,,,,this one would be perfect to add to Paula’s collection of toys, he was pretty sure she dint have this model….

  63. Ecosse_Maidy 63

    Women at back…Don’t worry about it,,,,,we both grab him and stick him in this container till after the election and you should stand a better chance with the electorate.

  64. Ecosse_Maidy 64

    Clown In Chief , announces that with these new improved building materials we shall build Christchurch back to its former glory.

    You wait and see!

  65. Ecosse_Maidy 65

    Be honest with me… Does this Hi Viz jacket make my bottom look big?

    You can be totally candid with me!??

  66. fender 66

    Ol look, I’ve just pulled this outa my arse, it’s called a….Fisiani…

  67. greywarshark 67

    Is this a carrot? I don’t know about real vegetables, just the ones that we grow to become fodder for our great National machine.

  68. greywarshark 68

    This is a kumara? It looks more like a carrot and I’ve hated them since Mum made me eat them as a kid. She said they would help me see better or make me more intelligent or something. I’ve avoided them for years. Yuk.

  69. greywarshark 69

    This reminds me of something but I mustn’t smile. It’s meant to be a solemn moment while I look all interested in home-grown produce. But I wish I was dishing out kumara in Hawaii. Mmmm.
