1. This potato will not lie, prevaricate, or have convenient memory lapses.

2. This potato doesn’t care who you may be talking to, emailing, tweeting or Facebooking. This potato will not try to pass laws depriving you of your civil liberties or allowing other people to monitor your communications.

3. If you chop this potato up and immerse the pieces in boiling hot vegetable oil you will get a plate of delicious hot chips. If you try to do the same thing to John Key you will be arrested.

4. This potato has no capacity to pass laws benefiting its rich mates. In fact, this potato has no mates.

5. Like John Key, this potato does little or nothing to grow the economy. Unlike John Key, nobody expects it to.

Next week: We measure the Leader of the Opposition up against a popular yellow crescent-shaped fruit.

    Now wait for the wingnuts to claim that point 3 is a vile lefty threat of violence against the PM.

    y’know – if crosby textor wanted a potato to be p.m then we’d probably let them. we are dicks as evidenced by john key getting two goes and probably a third.

    It also has more persnality than David Shearer.

    A potato won’t jump to the left and buy their own toy railway with tunnels too boot!

      Or re-announce a bastardised version of some one else’s city transport plan and make out it was always the potaoes plan

    Thank you. Now I know how to tell the difference between a potato and Key.

    A small point potatoes are are possibly bad for one’s health when green and uncooked.

    Key is definitely not green and is definitely over cooked.

    This does not make Key safe,

  6. Spuds of the world revealed.
