  1. adam 1

    Comedy gold, from epic rap battles of history.

    clinton vs trump.

    The cameo is the gold!!

    • TopHat 1.1

      That ^^^^^^ is the best thing to come out of this electoral race.

      • Pasupial 1.1.1

        That was actually a bit disorientating with having EpicLloyd as Trump this time, previously it was NicePeter (vs Scrooge in season 3).

        However, to make this more about ERB rather than the US elections (and so less likely to be modeleted). My favourite of their stuff remains this one:

        • The New Student

          Lolz that’s the first ERB I ever watched and its still my favourite.

          Though the Deadpool vs. Boba Fett is a close second. Not historical in the slightest obviously, but a perfect rap battle complete with a bit of b-boying by Boba. Brilliant.

  2. Paul 2

    Which of the following shows more disrespect to women?
    The behaviour of Key Senior or Junior?

    • TopHat 2.1

      From the Herald quoting the senior of the 2, ” “Clearly he didn’t mean to make the sort of comment that he made in the way he did, but he fully takes responsibility for it.”

      What the lewd remark just popped out of juniors mouth by accident? Then he accidentally posted the clip on social media. lmfao
      Cringe-worthy at best.

      • TopHat 2.1.1

        So I read this again, it gets worser,
        “Clearly he didn’t mean to make the sort of comment that he made in the way he did, but he fully takes responsibility for it.”

        So, maybe there is a way to make that comment in some acceptable way. Also in a manner that he wouldn’t have to take responsibility for.

    • Psych nurse 2.2

      Learnt behavior.But also another distraction for failed India trip.

      • In Vino 2.2.1


        I dislike, “…but he fully takes responsibility for it.” What a truly apologetic hero of epic proportions!!! – not.
        More likely – “Has made the necessary token apology, and will now do absolutely nothing to prove that he takes full responsibility in any way at all.”

      • Muttonbird 2.2.2

        Could be.

        Looks pre-planned.

        A distraction for the disaster of a trip which made New Zealand look less like a first world country than India.

        An event which allows Key to once again side with ‘ordinary parents’ struggling with errant teenagers.

        The Herald came to the John Key party by framing the poll question: are you offended or not? Hardly the point, really – it’s about abusing cyclists, isn’t it?

        • Chuck

          Yep pre-planned! oh my no wonder the left have been useless for the past 8 years.

          Although you are very close to the truth on this point…

          “An event which allows Key to once again side with ‘ordinary parents’ struggling with errant teenagers.”

          Your mate North wants to go loose on the Key children…combine that with your sentence above and what do you think will happen Muttonbird???

          • Muttonbird

            Hey, I’m just having fun on my forum. You, not so much.

            I’m not the one who abuses cyclists out the window of the Audi dad bought for me.

    • David H 2.4

      Well the Son is supposed to learn from the father.
      Good father Good lessons.
      Bad Father..

  3. Sans Cle 3

    Women in Iceland went on strike at 2.38pm to highlight the 18% differential
    in pay compared to men.

  4. Muttonbird 4

    Don’t want to get into the health of Paul Henry’s mother but how is this news?


    • Andre 4.1

      Well, you’ve just sent a whole lot of clicks that way. Which may help perpetuate that kind of “news”.

      • Muttonbird 4.1.1

        Most people would keep family stuff on the down-low. Henry and TV3 use it to promote the Henry brand. Very odd.

  5. Muttonbird 5

    It’s because he’s brown, isn’t it?

    The white guy, Delegat’s son, who punched the female cop unconscious on the ground hasn’t had his sentence appealed has he?
