    “Look, you’re told not to put your thumbs around the steering wheel to avoid broken thumbs, so what’s the diff?”

  15. Hateatea 15

    I laughed so hard when reading your captions that Miss 12 was worried for my sanity. Too witty you lot 😀

  16. Key: “Does my head look big in this helmet?”

  17. McFlock 17

    “Wait until they find out how much MBIE paid for all these matching bikes that’ll be used only once”

  18. Key: Only another couple of years, Simon, and we’ll take off your training wheels.

    Or:

    Bridges: (Thinks) I wonder if he’d like me more if I took the helmet off and let the breeze blow through my hair?

    New Zealand launches it’s first ever Tour de France team and it will be managed by ex-Champion Lance Armstrong. Armstrong says they were looking for riders with questionable ethics, large egos and a win at all costs mentality. The team basically selected themselves he said.

  23. Smilin 23

    How the ride John?
    pity I couldnt afford this when I wanted to go to Christs or should I say afford to have mum declare our fortune while she was on a benefit
    It wouldnt have boded well for my future ambitions if I had I suppose
    Self deprecating sod
    men of false humility on a shaky ride

  24. Rodel 24

    Nah! I can’t think of a caption ..but sickening to think that average kiwis voted yet again for these ridiculous,publicity seeking photo opportunist, duplicitous disneyland dick heads…a few more adjectives but can’t be bothered. grrrr!

  25. miravox 25

    and the subject on the right provides an example of how an ill-fitting cycle helmet causes the condition of ‘swell-headedness’. Please note that neither the poorly fitted helmet nor the swell-headedness, despite appearing to allow for more air space around the brain, will protect you if you fall while riding a high horse.

    • Sylvia 25.1

      No-one is riding a horse, it’s about the 300 million dollars, isn’t it? That they are wasting on cycle lanes, while kids starve?

      • miravox 25.1.1

        No? Cycleways = more growth! more jobs! we need a bigger pie! rising tide lifts all boats! more strivers, fewer shirkers! That’s they way to solve poverty, not a piddly 300mil in the back pocket. Those in poverty don’t seem to appreciate the taxpayers money the get!

        Some people are riding some very high horses called Arrogance and Contempt (imo).

  51. Thinkerr 51

    Stop grumbling, Simon.

    Those BMWs were way too excessive for a government that is preaching social and fiscal responsibility. We’re asking Kiwi mums and dads to tighten their belts, and its only fair that we do the same.

    I sold the Beemas to those nice Australians who took all our old state houses off our hands. They told me even though they’d been used, they still had a value, probably for parts. So, we didn’t get much for them, but we were able to buy these brand new bikes without risking our 2017 potential surplus.

  52. Ecosse_Maidy 52

    PM, takes the lead in testing the prototype inflatable head gear air bag….

    That was rather pleasant Simon, how many people did we run over at that last pedestrian crossing?

  56. Ecosse_Maidy 56

    Yeah darling going to make it happen…
    Take the world in a love embrace
    Fire all of your guns at once
    And explode into space

    I like smoke and lightning
    Heavy metal thunder
    Racin’ with the wind
    And the feelin’ that I’m under

    MBIE’s new “indoor park” so huge it requires bikes to get around. “It’s a prudent use of taxpayers money”, John Key said on his inspection tour. “And the MBIE hair straighteners are so good for dealing with that annoying helmet hair”, he added. MBIE are looking at installing an unusual waterfall feature in the near future, using the increasing amounts of unsold milk now cluttering supermarket fridges.

  71. Smilin 71

    Simple Simon met a Pieman going to a fair

    Key to Northland voters : “How many bridges have you seen?”
    Answer: “Just the one!.., but crooked and shaky with lots of water flowing below…and Oh, crikey, the entire thing is now stinking like tütae i tou nono! Yuk”

  77. rod 77

    I’m glad they supplied ladies bikes for this photo op Simon, I have trouble getting my leg over these days.

  78. rod 78

    I think you should have taken the polystyrene packaging out of the inside of your helmet Prime Minister before strapping it on. But I haven’t received any advice on that yet Simon.

  79. rod 79

    I haven’t come this way before Simon. Me neither PM, it must be the cobblestones.

  80. M Scott 80

    A few years ago there was a very popular disco song in E Africa about a chicken in platform shoes riding a bicycle all over the country (Kenya). It was called Fagilia by Mr Nice.

    Perhaps this is what these two are singing while they look for Northland’s famed two lane bridges.
