Dimpost: reality TV concept

More incisive hilarity from Danyl: “It works like this: Paul Holmes gets to live in a state house for a year with a one year old baby, surviving on only the $288 dollars/week allocated to beneficiaries on the DPB, and at the end of the year Paul gets to decide whether he chooses to ‘breed for cash’….”

    Would Paul get artificially inseminated?

    whoever the donor is, anything issuing from holmes would be perfect for the program, as they would bound to be little shits.

    Does the baby still need to be around at the end of the year? I mean, it’s not his so if he finds it tough to make ends meet can he just decide to “cut” some costs?

    CYFS would have to be involved from very early on – I would class it as psychological abuse having to be under the same roof as that Cretin.
     
    How about a spin off series; Paul Henry gets put on an Indonesian fishing boat which sinks off the coast of Western Australia. Unfortunately Mr. Henry is rescued and the series follows him as he resides in an immigration detention centre; sounds a winner to me, I’d enjoy watching that!

      Both Key and Henry, both who spent large amounts of their life overseas, are both sons of doting single migrant mothers. Do they ‘look’ kiwi enough?

    Should be: Paul is on the waiting list for a state house. In the meantime he shares a cold damp garage with another family.

    Love all those comments , seems to me theres always a lot more humor this side of the centre line

  7. ianupnorth 7

    Bob, that’s because the right leave themselves wide open for ridicule by their actions!

  8. U 4 United 8

    Good idea in vacuo, but the problem is that Mr Holmes has ostensibly other talents.(This is debatable!) Those who breed for cash have nothing else to offer.

    Define ‘breed for cash’?
     
    Are you refering to single parent, IVF surrogates, semen donors or all three?
