    The caption going around on Facebook …

    Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark with an unidentified guest …

  2. swordfish 2

    Helen: “We’re both wearing unconvincing toupees, aren’t we”.

    (sorry, not as Labour-friendly as I’d like, but just couldn’t resist it. Call me a bastard, if you will).

    • swordfish 2.1

      Helen: “It’s my very great pleasure to officially announce that the UN will be forcibly requisitioning Mr Key’s extensive Hawaii property portfolio in order to finance its on-going development programme for the next 10 years.”

      Key (thought-bubble) “What the Flying Fuck …..??????”

  3. The Outrider 3

    Helen smiled and calmly pushed the risk alert button. The unidentified intruder was dealt with speedily and has never been seen again.

  4. fender 4

    Fuckwit wearing contemptuous facial expression and silly haircut stands beside well respected NZer.

    It looks like John Key is holding the Newsquawk ZB microphone. How fitting – the next Leighton Smith / Paul Henry / Michael Laws / Murray Deaker.

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    “Mandela was a great man who participated in a very significant struggle. His willingness to go to prison for his people, motivated me politically. My first political actions were in the anti-apartheid movement. I remember the 81 tour very clearly and the way the country was divided over it . Over to you, John.”

    • RedLogix 6.1

      yeah – that’s the point isn’t karol. Politics is a hard game and relatively few people come out the other side of it with integrity and respect.

      (Cue some idiot blithering on about a painting ..)

  7. karol 7

    Clark: “I’m with stupid”

  8. Tiger Mountain 8

    Clark:–thinks– “where’s his guys with the curly wires down their necks? he’s looking more hungover than usual, hope he’s not working up to a stomach reflux”

    Key:–thinks– “Lucky b***h she gets to live in the big Apple and everyone knows her, I’m stuck with bloody Bill, Hekia, Gerry, Joycie, those damn Maaaris and no one else wants to know me. Geez wheres my detail got to…. time for my morning livener”

    Apologies to Helen.

    Lord Percy, it’s up to you: You can shut up, or you can have your head cut off.”

  11. ianmac 11

    John Key forgets to switch on his fake boyish grin because he is so intimidated in the presence and power of a great woman. Instead his off screen sneer stays on.

  12. Zorr 12

    I’m not full of quips today but Helen looks like she is having a good time…
    Who’s the old miser next to her?

  13. Lanthanide 13

    The media know which of them can give a dignified statement without sounding like a petulant child.

  14. mac1 14

    “Nine long bloody years she had………… and I’m not going to get the same, am I?”

  15. swordfish 15

    Helen: “Could someone get Security, please ? This ageing, drunken would-be lothario keeps hanging around me.”

  16. chris73 16

    “Of course I’m smiling I don’t have to take him on in another debate, my cheeks are still red from the spanking he dished out” 🙂

    or

    “No wonder I’m smiling and hes not, I’m paid more, I work less, I live in New York and I’m answerable to virtually no one” 🙂

    • felix 16.1

      Only one of the people in the photo constantly compares himself to the other.

      You know this as well as anyone does, and your desperate smiles only serve to highlight the fact.

    • QoT 16.2

      You can always tell the really funny submissions by the way people have to stick a smiley face on the end to signal it’s a joke.

  17. swordfish 17

    Helen: “Hey John. Why not tell us all the joke about the Englishman, the Scotsman and the Irishman who go into the Mens lavatory together ? You know, the hilarious joke you told David Cameron because you were getting so bored at Mandela’s funeral.”

  18. Philj 18

    Unidentified guest wonders if he can buy credibility on Trademe.

  30. Skinny 30

    Helen: My legacy of working in New York naturally differs to Johns, I’ll be remembered for trying to do good things in the World. As a money trading shyster John will be forever remembered and scorned for pushing a neo liberal agenda.

  31. Te Reo Putake 31

    “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in the rain. Time to die.”

  32. Chooky 32

    I can feel it coming on…..i want to bite her around the neck

  33. Chooky 33

    I know what Freud said about penis envy ….but honestly!…. it is all Baloney!

  34. I once stood in a dog poo that reminded me of Mr Key – well I certainly had to use my key to get it all out of the tread

    “And he asked me what the letters DP stood for. I told him “Development Programme” and he asked for a definition of both words.”

    Fear and loathing in New York City.

  76. alwyn 76

    The most wonderful about being in New York is that I don’t actually have to do any work and I don’t have to put up with those bloody idiots Cunliffe, Mallard, Curran, Fenton, Mackey, Moroney or Street any more.
    A lot of them wanted to come here but the all backed off when I stitched up that twit Carter by getting him a job in Afghanistan.
    Bad luck John. You have to put up with their whines now.
