    Yes Lord Keyster, with this small implant we will replace the non functional parts of your brain with direct instructions from Galatic Emperor Jamie Dimond [CEO of JP Morgan]

  2. minarch 2

    shit…..

    his battery packs come unplugged !

  3. ruup 3

    There that should do it….Now the strings are invisible again.

  4. ruup 4

    careful … we don’t want you to actually be able to hear the peasants.

  5. Tiger Mountain 5

    right; this tiny invisible strip will keep your rug snug JK, no worries…

  6. minarch 6

    just needs a few final touches before we send it off to the madame Tussauds “crooks and villains” exhibition

    I’m installing Crosby Textor spin cartridge no. CT-FO/714. It won’t hurt, but will feel a bit strange at first when you start speaking in coherent sentences. This is the foreign ownership module. This cartridge is incompatible with CT-BF/001 the ‘Brighter Future’ module which I’ve uninstalled. So steer clear of that topic, but if you can’t, then CT-DC/031 will fire up and you will just be able to say David Cunliffe is tricky and hates men.
    OK- all good now

    • weka 7.1

      very good.

    • swordfish 7.2

      Nicely done, AB.

      In this little scene, we see Malcolm unsuccessfully trying to install a new Crosby/Textor cartridge into the android PM…

      Malcolm (to work colleague, Keith, off-camera) “Ah, Keith, how the hell do you get this thing to work ?”

      Keith “Oh shit, what have you done, Malcolm ?”

      Malcolm “I’ve hardly touched it ! I was just very carefully installing the new cartridge into it, completely according to the instruction booklet – absolutely followed it step-by-step ! And then….well… look at it !, the dumb thing’s just suddenly stopped, completely frozen, arms in mid-air !”

      Keith “Ahhh shit !, well, look mate, all I know is: this android was the latest model, right ?, and I mean absolutely bloody state-of-the-art, when Crosby/Textor first purchased it in 2002. It’s needed one or two tweaks over the years, especially after it made a hash of the 2011 campaign, but overall it’s been working pretty bloody well since it became Prime Minister and now you’ve just gone and fucked it up ! I mean, Christ !, you do realise it’s got a current affairs interview in about an hour’s time and then a press conference tomorrow morning. What the hell are we gonna do ?”

    National+Maori+United+ACT government falling apart, whose going to be talking in his ear now?

  38. aerobubble 38

    Recommend a picture of Key, glasses on, double chin showing as he looks down at his papers while sitting in parliament. Looking old and tired. Why do his opponents always show his best PR picture?

    • aerobubble 38.1

      I mean Goff on the motorbike. Cunliffe bent forward sitting next to Mahota at the hustings. Why no Key images of off camera debranding.

    The incept date is 1961 – if we reduce cognitive function we can extend the lifetime. There may be some brain fades… but the light that burns half as bright burns twice as long… and this one never burned very bright to begin with.

  55. Flippant 55

    Is this really “Vote Positive”?
    C’mon people, you want to gain the politically central voters- keep the positive message, not this childish teasing/ bullying type enabling that you decry…

  56. Instauration 56

    Was that 100 rounds pertaining the Great Whore for the imperialists ?

  57. Flippant 57

    Why was my comment not posted? Was not nasty or unfair- was that the problem?
    Was genuinely pointing out this puts off us ‘centrist’ voters.. Id say same on “right wing” blogs….?

    [It was stuck in spam. The machine did it … MS]

    [lprent: Could also be that the system “knows” about you under a different name, and you have a ban. It is the most common reason.

    I guess you’ll find out as I don’t remove morans from the spam listing until I know that they aren’t banned or their sentence is up.

    Most of the time the self-evident stupidity that got them banned in the first place tends to show up over time. For a starter they tend to whine a lot Eh? ]

  67. Mr Skud Missile 67

    There you go darling, I’ll just dab this caviar off

    You have such symmetry to your humor John

    I mean, we are here to remember those who gave up their lives for their country and what do you do, you sell everything, I mean fxxkxxg everything in NZ, brilliant.

    It’s hilarious, you even down sized the NZDF and were just lucky enough to get those 2 cannons in the background off trade me in exchange for some Twinkies.

    I understand the symmetry of your humor, John, it’s just a reflection of the fact that there is nothing left to defend.

    Well, except us against the proletariat. We have to keep them working in those foreign owned factories and farms at low pay don’t we. A good show of force every now and again keeps them in tow (I think, they call it in your business, “leverage”).

    Don’t the banks win in all of this?

    Even with your strange quirk of sticking caviar in your ear,

    I will always love you Heir Leader

  68. poem 68

    Shit John, whats that? you’ve even got lies coming out of your ear, we’d better plug that up from view.

    If you don’t fix it soon I will have to get that other MP with the earwax problem to come and fix it

    “Excuse me Prime Minister, you have quite a bit of excess wax in your ear. Hold still while I pick it out for you. Now there will be no excuse for you to fall deaf on the calls of struggling New Zealanders.”
