    “OK guys forget what Shag tells you about team work and co-operation, that’s all socialist clap trap. It’s every man for himself out there. Then one of you can have all of the wealth and the rest can have a pittance. Sound good?”

    “Hey Mister when I grow up can I be big and strong like you?”

    All was going well for Gulliver, until he met the leader of the Lilliputians.

    “Oi, Pinocchio! You seen a guy with some magic beans around here?”

  9. NZSage 9

    Whitelock felt something brush against his hand. He peered down at a tiny figure. "I'm John Key!" squeaked a voice. pic.twitter.com/FFOiAHisOH— Toby Manhire (@toby_etc) October 25, 2015

  13. Mike Boon 13

    Help! Help! This giant is crushing my tiny man-hand

  14. alwyn 14

    Well that settles the limits on Key’s size.
    According to the photo he is bigger than McCaw and smaller than Whitelock.
    That camera lens must have been as warped as the one they used for the pledge card snap.

  15. mary_a 15

    Ha ha, look fellas, the creepy slimy stalking toad has turned up!

    Throw him back into the murky pond from where he came!

  18. b waghorn 18

    If you take a knight hood Sammy I’ll stop tweeting Richie I promise.

    • Ffloyd 19.1

      Lol. Just about hear Richie saying “flipping heck, give him a beer and ignore him and he might go away!” Notice key is only one drinking.

  20. mary_a 21

    Definition of a pervert … let me see …

    Has a ponytail fetish
    Stalks rugby captains
    Enjoys being questioned about personal dirty little habits
    Loves to hang around rugby players’ change rooms

    Hmmm …. anyone come to mind?

  21. Gas Kranken 22

    Well Johnny Boy, now you’ve sent your first dick pic mate.

  22. Gerald 23

    It’s Richie’s little mate from the adverts!

  23. Ffloyd 24

    I hope John Oliver sees this photo. Who else has a Hobbit for a pm? What a dick. Bet he was in the sheds before the ab’s so he could bags the seat next to Richie before anyone else.

  24. Ben 25

    “Anybody want a peanut?”

  25. BLiP 26

    “Hi John. Look, would you mind please if we all took our showers first, this time?”

  26. Philj 27

    I promise I won’t pee in the shower. Pretty please….

  27. Anne 28

    Sorry. No quip. Just seen pic for first time. I’m flabbergasted. So the Key dick actually gatecrashed their changing room? I can’t believe its for real. How embarrassing. John Oliver is going to love this.

  28. Reddelusion 29

    Who gives a continental what John Oliver thinks ? Apart from left wing tragics

    He is the leader of the country wether you like it or not, why should he not congratulate the team on behalf of the country It looks like he presence is appreciated

    Again a clear demonstration of jk living rent free in many of your heads

    • Anne 29.1

      No-one gives a continental what you think oh ‘delusioned’ one. He maybe the leader (more fool the voters) but he ain’t no leader. He’s a philistine and I put you in the same bracket.

      Have some grammar lessons and learn how to spell and you too can be like us.

      • tinfoilhat 29.1.1

        … may be…

      • Reddelusion 29.1.2

        Oh I am devastated Ann by your put down I thank the lord every day that i am not part of your little collective, a life of bitterness glass half empty, , whinging and moaning is not for me, nor is an unhealthy fixation on one man that borders on psychotic

        Take labour day to reflect, it does not have to be that way

        • One Anonymous Bloke 29.1.2.1

          You spend most of your time here, whinging and whining about opinions that no-one actually holds.

          So there’s that.

        • ropata 29.1.2.2

          Instead of vomiting another fact-free rant, you should be thanking union activists for your day off today.

        • Smilin 29.1.2.3

          You cant help being self deluded in your own nest and think that you hold the upper ground thats until it falls under your feet
          Others know what it cost the workers of this nation to keep that Key pricks crimes paid in full
          Make no mistake Key is here to balance his books not ours
          And just like his mentor Douglas will live off this nation and return SFA except delusion like yours

    • ropata 29.2

      Do you think Labour should also get free election advertising throughout the rugby season? The problem is JK lives “rent-free” in the head of the average kiwi, enabled by fawning media and useful idiots like yourself.

      Sorry if we are puncturing your JK fantasy world.

    • Ffloyd 29.3

  62. savenz 63

    Just tweet Go Nats on Election day, you will be rewarded!

    Don’t worry about any negative consequences, the Nats will ensure you just get a slap on the hand with a wet bus ticket (if that).

  63. JAG 64

    Here Richie, I got you this John Key action figure. It does fuck all and I would’nt put it anywhere near your moneybox or Barbie, it can pull a ponytail with one hand and feed the chickens with the other.

  64. mikesh 65

  65. Treetop 66

    Jack (Key) to the giant, “just give me the golden goose (rugby cup) and I’m off.”

    • b waghorn 67.1

    • Smilin 67.2

      Yes clears the throat when you try to laugh knowing if Key will have CT trying to spin an advantage out of Cairns. Just how gullible does he think we are.
