    Now I can practise getting my fingers up the skirts.

    • D-D-D-Damn ! 1.1

      After a deeply hostile reception from the elderly audience, Grey Power Chairwoman, Elsie Price, hands a humiliated John Key his balls back (albeit covered with nice knitted doilies).

  2. Lanthanide 2

    John Key about to dress down the elderly for making knitted goods featuring a red tie instead of his preferred blue.

    I’m a little teapot, short and stout
    Here is my handle [one hand on hip], here is my spout [other arm out straight]
    When I get all steamed up, hear me shout
    Just tip me over and pour me out!
    [as song ends, lean over and tip arm out like a spout]

    I’m a clever teapot, yes it’s true
    Here’s an example of what I can do
    I can change my handle to my spout [switch arm positions and repeat tipping motion]
    Just tip me over and pour me out

    We’ll stand this one in Epsom and this one in Ilam.

      But Banks isn’t stout, although like Gerry is a bigoted authoritarian redneck. Which makes Banks a strange fit for an Act Party that Brash supposedly wants to bring back to its libertarian roots.

      • Draco T Bastard 7.1.1

        From what I’ve seen, scratch a libertarian and you’ll find the authoritarian core.

    “Well, I thought they were appropriate wedding gifts for Wills and Kate”

    I’m a little teapot
    short and stout
    Here is my handle
    Here is my spout…

    but as for tangible policies about how to enable economic recovery
    after savagely slashing public services and making foolhardy soundbytes
    about new government research and development funding policies from
    the opposition,
    I can’t actually find any…

  11. prism 11

    “Aw! I sed I wanted to sell SOEs, not cups o teas.”

  17. scotty 17

    John Key believed the hand knitted jerseys would keep his Turbo charged growth pixies warm all winter.

  18. toad 18

  19. Craig Glen Eden 19

    I said I wanted to hold big jugs not tea pots in rugs.

  20. Please America sign the TPPA, you can have our country and we’ll even throw in these tea cosies

  21. mikesh 21

    With an election coming up, I’d say it was ‘time for a cuppa’.

    “I would like to introduce to you the two Treasury officials that provided the economic forecast that Bill based this year’s budget on…”

  23. Mac1 23

    “These are for….? Who’s John Kerwin? “

  24. Georgecom 24

    ‘We’ll, the tea leaves forecast economic growth in the next few years. Um, well, Bill said they did last year also, but we are back in recession, so, um, er, we’ll just borrow a bit more money for the tax cuts”.

  25. todd 25

    Lot #9827 is a nice pair of tea cozies modeled by the former Prime Minister Shonkey the Honkey. He’s also for sale… Do I hear 5 cents… 5 cents anyone? One cent then?

  26. Craig Glen Eden 26

    “Look wat Brownlee looted for us frim Christchurch Bronagh.”

    • Armchair Critic 28.1

      If they had been looted from Christchurch they would not be blue and white. Maybe they have been photoshopped, like Bronagh’s top.

    Debt in NZ is a huge problem, that’s why I John Key who have helped so many who are indebt. or took on debt, and got rich servicing them, should solve the debt crisis, first by distracting you to this things I’m holding.

    NZ owes billions to foreigners and that money needed a currency trader, to provide the principle in NZ dollars and swap the profits into foreign currency. Like these two money bags I’m holding up.

  30. Knit wit 30

    Police catch Wanaka yarn bomber in the act.

    “If I lose the election I’ve got the equipment for my new career of tea leaf reading given I’m the biggest tea leaf of them all,” John Key declared proudly.

  32. Axle 32

    I’ve pissed in them and the dumb pricks will still vote me in.

  33. Descendant Of Smith 33

    I’m a little teapot, short and stout,
    My mates get the pot, you get what trickles out,
    When I get all steamed up, hear me mumble,
    It’s all about me, please don’t grumble

    I’m a clever teapot, yes it’s true
    I can take your money, and then blame you
    I can help my private mates by bailing them out,
    I have a whole country now and it’s my shout.

  34. todd 34

    “Trew! Wen ya sed ya wented ta be me daddy Don, I didn’t think it wes a wife swap as wel. I never signed up fer bringin yas a cip of tea da mornin.”
