    Don’t you guys have a sense of humour? It went down well with Ngāti Porou.

  3. Tigger 3

    Your grandson? I assumed it was the main course.

    “I love Maori but I couldn’t eat a whole one!”

  5. greenfly 5

    *Thinks
    What was that greeting I was taught –
    Kia-ora? or Kai-tangata?

  6. greenfly 6

    No thanks Tame. I’m full!
    Couldn’t eat another one!

  7. greenfly 7

    E Koro! Why’s that tauiwi sniffing me?

  8. greenfly 8

    This ones kanga-fed John.
    He’s a succulent one!
    Trade you for your tama!

  9. greenfly 9

    While meeting with Tameiti, the Prime Minister hid as much exposed flesh as possible.

  10. MikeE 10

    “Don’t worry Tama, we here at the VRWC have known for a long time that baby eating enhances your mana”

        Ko ‘Momona me reka’ tana ingoa!

  13. BLiP 14

    “Hi John, good to see you with your hands in your own pockets for a change”

  14. Dinner. Yours or mine?

  15. Look! I got takeout!

  16. greenfly 17

    fyi – Tāme Iti

  17. sally 18

    “So, you’ll get me a job in Jackie Blue’s office, and all I have to do is let you take my mokopuna to Waitangi?”

  18. greenfly 19

    He’ll be just fine Tame.
    I’ll have him chur-broiled.

  19. Papa Aroha 20

    “Well Tame, I see you’ve certainly grabbed life with both hands.”

  20. Papa Aroha 21

    “I hate to disappoint you Tame, but I’m sure your next generation will find our party even harder to digest than you do.”

  21. Bored 22

    What did you say Tama? Hongi or hangi?

  22. uke 23

    Tame: “Keep smiling John – and hope like hell the boys scored enough real pork for the hangi.”

  23. vto 24

    “You’re looking a bit tense John – what’s eating you?’

  26. george 27

    But some of my best friends are maori.

  27. The Voice of Reason 28

    Hey John, when the bro’s told you the East Coast had the best pot, they weren’t talking about cooking, eh..

  28. burt 29

    No that’s not how it works, you can’t swap your first born for Te Urewera National Park.

  29. nottamaiti 30

    John K – Do you read the Standard.

    Tama Iti – No it’s shit.

  30. E Koro – Didn’t you say we shouldn’t play with our kai?

  31. burt 32

    I bet you wouldn’t dress the kid in a NZ flag and tell him to lie on the ground outside the marae !

    • felix 32.1

      Where’d that come from burt? You’re really letting it all out lately, aintcha?

  32. greenfly 33

    Jesus! That’s not a piece of spinach stuck between Tame’s teeth!

  33. greenfly 34

    That burp of Tame’s!
    Reminds me of the way my granny used to smell…
    hang on!

  34. Bill 35

    Yeah, yeah, nah Tame. Traders Oysters would be off the menu. Never did have any balls. What you see standing before you is just a useless shirted prick prone to vacuous ejaculations…

  35. Papa Aroha 36

    “Well Tame, once I got my foot back out of my mouth I realised that you couldn’t possibly be interested in a man of such poor taste.”

  36. Papa Aroha 37

    “How about it John. You give back our land and I’ll hand over your car keys and your nephew.”

  37. Papa Aroha 38

    “You’re a funny guy, John. I like you. That’s why I’m going to kill you last.” – Arnold Schwarzenneger – Commando (1985)

  38. burt 39

  39. Richard 40

    Nice camo’s bro. But did you see me in that flak jacket?

  40. Richard 41

    If you eat me for breakfast Tame, I’ll be gone by lunchtime. Let me go and I’ll send you Brownlee and Joyce. They should see you through the winter.

  41. Craig Glen Eden 42

    John: I can do it I know I can, don’t make me laugh Tama cos when I laugh I smile when I smile I wave and If I keep my hands in my pockets I will beat this bloody addiction foreshore. Oh shit did I say foreshore?

    You brown fellas are tricky aye man?

  42. i almost fell off my chair laughing with this image 😆
    can’t think of a caption that could be any funnier than the image itself
    oh the rich ironies of politics

  43. burt 44

    Come on Tama, remember what happened to the bloody Moa when you ate all the ones that were easy to catch !

  44. mach1 45

    Key: “I’m relaxed about it”, Tama: “what the fuck you relaxed about whiteboi”.

  45. Irascible 46

    Hey Tama, I came here to be culturally sensitive. I left the nightshirts and tea-towels in the ME. Can’t you offer me something more than a baby hangi?

  46. billo 47

    Nah! I never believed that stuff in the police affidavit. Those chaps were given to extravagant rhetoric! Keith Locke gave them all good reference.

  47. Papa Aroha 48

    After confiscating your fertile land, destroying your crops and homes, chasing off your stock and charging you exorbitantly for surveying your land without your permission we’ll make jokes about you and maintain the status quo. What’s your problem?

  48. Mac1 49

    “Shirkers unite! You have nothing to lose but your brains!”

  49. prism 50

    John K – You know Tame as Minister of Tourism I could help you with development of tourism on your land, a PPP arrangement – you know a Public-Private Partnership.
    Tame I – No good John. The three P’s we’re interested in are pork, puha and Papa-tu-anuku (Mother Earth).

  50. ak 51

    The innate a priori capacity of infants to divine sublimated terror and incipient catastrophe is encapsulated for posterity in the now-classic “Tama and the Smiling Snake” snapped shortly before the watershed “Tuhoegate” events of 2010 by an anonymous blogger. (re-produced with kind permission from “Our Humble Parts”: Prentice and R0bspierrre, MartyPress 2015, and the Clark Foundation)

  51. Willie Maley 52

    Smells like fish, tastes like chicken, John Key you’re a c***

  52. Papa Aroha 53

    Celebrity Master Chef NZ judge John Key emerges apparently unscathed after a grilling by failed Tuhoe finalist Tame Iti.

  53. Papa Aroha 54

    Emerging from ‘in tents’ negotiations neither man proved willing to reveal his hand.

  54. burt 55

    Politically I really need to put a cycle way through it, if you agree to that it’s yours.

  55. George.com 56

    ‘Look Tame, a smile and a wave is not agreement that something is doable.’

  56. George.com 57

    Yes, I did make the joke, but I smiled and waved when I said it so everything is ok.
