  17. One Anonymous Bloke 18

    Isn’t this the brand Don likes?

  18. mauī 19

    PM locked himself in Kaikoura supermarket and gorged himself while residents waited for food convoy official information request reveals.

  19. Roflcopter 20

    Oh look, tins of “Labour Party Poll Result Supporter Tears” on special…. 23% off.

    Only contains 8% “Leader Popularity” additives.

    Wonder whether this will be a good match for the ’49 Chateau Latour?

  22. Treetop 23

    Outrageous !

  25. swordfish 26

    PM contemplates new disposable toupee (straight out of a can !)
    “Orange worked for Donald”

  26. james 27

    John Key donates to the local labour party fund raiser by giving a can of spaghetti. Doubles labour member donations.

  27. alwyn 28

    This is what we found in Premier House when the previous PM moved out.
    Apparently this was all she ate. Washed it down with prune juice.

  33. mikesh 34

    Hmmm. I can actually read the list of ingredients. The font needs to be much,
    much smaller.

  34. Incognito 35

    For Christmas I was going to send the Leader of the Opposition a can of worms but this’ll be close enough.

    Very dangerous work, being a worm farmer, and I’m surprised how cheap this is!

  35. Smilin 36

  37. fender 38

    Why can’t they make it with blue sauce, it’s always this gay red colour.

  38. fender 39

    It’s an orange shade of red so will make a fine Xmas gift for Viper, just something in appreciation for stirring up those lefties at TS.

  39. AB 40

    Akshully I can’t recall if it was a can of baked beans. I mean there is always a whole range of factors to consider and it might of been one, but the point is that there was lots of other stuff close by and the picture isn’t always clear and we’d have to do some more work on that, maybe John Shewan could kick the tyres and if it does turn out that it was a can of beans then we’ll have some options down the road bean-wise and of course there are always strategies that can come into play in situations like that when things are an issue but they aren’t always and generally I’m comfortable with the totality of the bean situation in general terms overall because we’ve got great growth in the economy and beans are going gangbusters in terms of investment returns akshully in a global sense and that’s why people still support National

  40. AB 41

    Awesome! I think I can see where the GCSB have put the microphone inside the label. Coz everyone knows that terrorists like Nucky Hager and John Stephenson eat beans. Losers!

  41. AB 42

    “The advice I have say’s that this is actually a Jihad IED . We must allocate more funds to gcsb to monitor this issue.”

  45. mosa 46

    Have i got shares in this baked bean company ?

  46. Tricledrown 47

    Memories come streaming back of the state house bill English is selling.

  47. mauī 48

    In a moment of clarity that’s when he knew where all the bad organs would go, and the policy would be paid for.

  48. Doogs 49

    Spoken out of the corner of the mouth –

    “For god’s sake take the fucking photo and let’s get out of this place”

    Thinks –

    “Take me to Farro Fresh, quickly!”

  49. doc 50

    Hmmm that price looks cheap enough, better look at raising gst after the next elections.

  50. rod 51

    I think the All Blacks eat these baked bean things to make them run faster. I wonder how they work. I must get Bronagh to get me some.

  51. Tom Gould 52
