    Wonder where all the New Zealanders will be moving to after we and Labour vote for the CP-TPP?

  2. mary_a 2

    ‘Help, help we are lost,” screech the little blue trolls, just before they are blown off the end of NZ, into the cold, cold southern ocean, never to he seen again. And everything ended happily ever after.

  3. Anon 3

    It already has a caption: “Bluff New Zealand” – sounds about right.

  4. weka 4

    Blue with cold.

  5. Tiger Mountain 5

  8. McFlock 8

    Tory leader plans his next move when he’s rolled. Five backstabbers plan where they’ll send the others after they roll the current leader.

  9. adam 9

    Conservative New Zealand, it’s really quite a blokey affair.

    Sorry,nothing but nothing beats Enzo’s Twitter caption for a side by side image of a photo from the BBQ at Waitangi and this photo from Bluff –

    https://twitter.com/EnzoGiordani/status/960680314426175488

    “New Zealand. Old Zealand.”

    As Greg Presland said on Twitter The best social media commentary on Waitangi Day 2018. And all it took was 4 words and 2 photos …

    Apologies – embedding the image of the two photos is beyond my abilities.

    Five Go Backstabbing in Bluff.

    Six Arseholes at the Bottom of NZ.

    Many tourists come to have their photos taken beneath Bluff’s sign post, but most dress more comfortably.

  17. greywarshark 18

    Where are your black singlets and khaki shorts you plummy poofters.

  18. AB 19

    Rigor mortis conturbat me
    (apologies to William Dunbar)

    • greywarshark 19.1

      Thanks for William Dunbar – sounds most interesting.
      As for your quote were you considering this was an image of a ‘Cadaveric spasm ‘?

      • AB 19.1.1

        Yes.
        The rigidity of Bill’s pose disturbs (conturbat) me. I wonder if the deed has already been done on him and that rictus grin is an example of the undertaker’s art.

        • greywarshark 19.1.1.1

          Is he being propped up from behind?
          I just remembered Weekend at Bernies where a couple of guys have to pretend that their employer is still alive. By a series of subterfuges they manage to create the impression.
          Someone has copied this and giggles his way through it.

  19. greywarshark 20

    I fear that all these desperate Nationals have been reading the exploits of Reginald Perrin, and muttering ‘I didn’t get where I am today by striking out on my own’.

    • lprent 20.1

      Do you mean that they are about to leave their clothes on the beach?

      They will definitely be blue after a swim in the buff.

      • greywarshark 20.1.1

        That could be a slogan for the next National Conference – Swim in the buff at Bluff till you are true blue and a smaller, cleaner man (’embraces’ woman). It would be like visiting Lourdes, and become an annual, spiritual cleansing. For those who had no spirit they could just have tonic. Note to myself: Stop, I’m getting silly.

  20. Robert Guyton 21

    National; always the finger-pointing.

  21. greywarshark 22

    Haha they giggle, Maori want us to learn about their tikanga. Well we have learned they made a pretence of giving up and going home, and then sneaked round the back at night and took the defending tribe by surprise. Kia kaha mates, follow the plan.

  22. greywarshark 23

    Well look what the king tide washed up!!

  23. greywarshark 24

    Dear National supporters, we record this grand opening of our hikoi back to Wellington and Parliament. Dame Whina Cooper got a gong because of hers and she was only an old Maori lady not the shining face of tomorrow’s prosperity – when we get back into power and reset the delivery end of the pipeline.
    (/sarc – Please note that I think Whina Cooper and her like to be deserving the highest awards, old and young.)

    BREAKING NEWS … odious blue slime polluting Bluff!

  25. Rosemary McDonald 26

    “It only hurt a little bit when it came out of the back of my head…”

  26. mac1 27

    “The Long Road Back”- Bill shows the way to Wellington

    • mac1 27.1

      A bit of subtle body language here. Note who, and how many, are copying the leader’s stance……….. and how many differentiate themselves.

  27. mac1 28

    “Smile and wave”.

    They smile, the sea waves back. Who else would?

  28. McFlock 29

    Six politician’s backs.
    Eleven pointy sticks.
    Who will be in charge at the end of the day?

    • greywarshark 29.1

      Rinse the Blood off my Toga, all about political furore. The great leader is stabbed in the portico ‘more painful than the rotunda’. Bill meets out in the open with the sea behind him so no-one can stab him in the back.

      • McFlock 29.1.1

        Oh. My. God. I’ve only ever heard it on a Wayne&Schuster record! I didn’t know it was on telly too!

        I feel like someone who just heard that their copy of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was based on a radio play…

        • greywarshark 29.1.1.1

          Someone said ‘The past is another country’. It’s a mind stretch trying to keep the memories and experiences in mind and still forge onwards into our brrrave new future.

  29. Carolyn_Nth 30

    kudos as political nerd if you can name all the faces in the photo, because I bloody well can’t:

    2 names, 4 also rans.

  30. AB 31

    A crisp suit then colonic irrigation. Bill was ready for the fight.

  31. mauī 32

    “Our work here is done.

    Beam us up Toddy.”

  32. Chuck 33

    Bugger…who forgot to ask Winston for his NO sign! so we can put to bed any leadership questions.

  35. Daveosaurus 36

    Are you sure Siri Simon said meet me at Tuatapere for some sausages?

  37. Philg 38

    Just look at what came down in the last shower!

  38. Philg 39

    OK guys, I AM THE LEADER, now which way are we going?

  39. r0b 40

    Pick a direction. Any direction. And just – go.

  40. patricia bremner 41

    “There they are all standing in a row
    Big ones small ones some as big as your head
    Give ’em a twist a flick o the wrist”

  41. Incognito 42

    Proof that NZ is too small for dating apps.

    Kiwi astronauts selected for mission to Planet Key.

    New species of Little Blue Penguin discovered near Bluff.

    National relies on road signs without moral compass.

    All signposts point away from National.

    No national roads of significance shows insignificance of National.

    National on the cusp of Bluff.

    The Goof, the Bad and the Smugly.

    National MPs photobomb scenic shot.

    National emphatically denies signs of weakness and the need to change direction.

    Bill English celebrates Waitangi Day with local iwi in Bluff.

  42. patricia bremner 43

    National lost their way.

  43. patricia bremner 44

    Not a Blue Dragon in sight.

    Boy: Yes. sir.

    Other person: It’s the Dipper from Dipton.
    Person: But . . . he’s not in the middle, he’s third from the left.
    Other person: Close enough.

  46. Doogs 47

    The who’s who of Blind man’s Bluff

  47. Doogs 48

    Boy: Why are they smiling?
    Mother: They’re not.
    Boy: So, why are their faces contorted?.
    Mother: It’s called a grimace, son.
    Son: How grim do you have to be to make a grimace?
    Mother: Very, just ask your father.
    Son: Oh, where is Dad?
    Mother: Down at the river with the herd, seems he’s down there most of the time.

  48. Stuart Munro 49

    “That’s funny, Simon didn’t invite me to his barbecue either.”

  49. Henry Filth 50

    I don’t have a caption, but who are those people?

    Is it something to do with tailoring?

  50. mosa 51

    Keep walking backwards………..i’ll tell ya when to stop.

  51. Paul Campbell 52

    How far can we get from Waitangi? You know there’s another island right?

  52. greywarshark 53

    Oh what a great load of sardonic humour, this is a terrific post – could be the best caption one so far? Compare and contrast?
