  1. Tim Ellis 1

    Two clues: he looks like a kangaroo and was last seen sitting on Lord Ashcroft’s lap.

  2. forgetaboutthelastone 2

    d4j?

  3. I’m thinking Barnsley Bill…

    Oh and Tim? I’m an ass not a kangaroo!

  4. higherstandard 4

    A Kangaroo……… Tim give yourself an uppercut.

  5. Dom 5

    I’m from Taranaki…Hawera no less… It was probably old man Johnson, he was two doors down from where my parents used to live. He always looked a bit suss…

  6. Dad4J’s from Christchurch, and Barnsley Bill has had his heart stopped and restarted, so both of those are wrong.

    Why not ask Lynn to go through his banning list – he could give us an answer by, hmm, this time next week, ‘cos it’s a long list!

  7. lprent 7

    Actually it isn’t that long at present. Tane and Irish increased it substantially today.

    The blacklist is moderately chunky and very permanent (and a spam trap). But those were the people that didn’t treat this place with any respect at all. Even that isn’t particularly long. Most people either learn to live within the policy limits, or they don’t return after a banning.

    BTW: Isn’t BB from northland?

  8. As much as I hate to stick up for FD he is from Christchurch (not Taranaki) and from what I’ve heard he’s younger than 61.

  9. Tane 9

    I don’t think this was meant to be a genuine witch hunt guys, IB was just having a laugh at the expense of the Kiwiblog Right.

  10. Doubtless IB will be fronting up with the evidence that this fruitloop was from the Kiwiblog Right. No? Thought not 😉

    Otherwise it just looks like another opportunistic smear…

  11. Tane 11

    I think that’s why it’s labelled under ‘humour’. Besides, the KBR isn’t a formal organisation, more a tag to describe a certain brand of right-wing politics…

  12. Billy 12

    Bet he’s from Inglewood.

  13. Invent Stories 2 13

    Doubtless JK will be fronting up with the evidence that the Helensville rubbish-raider was from the Labour Party. No? Thought not.
    Otherwise it just looks like another opportunistic smear

  14. randal 14

    opportunitstic smear is national party territory…they specialise in it.

  15. toad 15

    Yep, will check the IP addresses of posters who may have posted similarly to frogblog or g.blog but it ain’t one of ours!

    Where’s d4j?

  16. No comment as big day at the Courthouse. My, my Toad Hall is concerned with my where bouts, please call the feds. Fuck it just dropped me bowl of flour over the cat, must go mess everywhere. Yes I am banned from kiwiblog, nearly completed a 2 month remand in custody, oh well such is life.

  17. gobsmacked 17

    The accused person (and of course, innocent until etc.) has now been named as Doug Hancock, 61, a Taranaki farmer.

    OK, here we go … *types slowly, breathes fast*

    Your search – “doug hancock” “big fat secret donation” “john key” – did not match any documents.

    Bugger!

  18. toad 18

    Actually, d4j, I think Roger Nome’s got the longest finite Key wee-blog suspension at the moment.

    Go clean your cat up!

  19. randal 19

    WHIP IT GOOD

  20. Toad, speaking of rogered nome, is he not due back on kiwiblog tomorrow?
    My cat just finished a delicious Toad Stew.

  21. d4j… you’re mixture of sublime writing – genius puns, great use of rhetocrial devices but, sometimes, you’re insane. This is why people suspect you’re a project of the Chch surealist art movement. almost credible but the extremmes are too extreme.

  22. IrishBill Says: Dad, you’ve been banned until next Tuesday, remember?

  23. Rocket Boy 23

    Geez, dad4justice and Roger Nome, you’re only part timers in the banning stakes over at Kiwiblog, I’ve been banned ‘indefinitely’.

    And I don’t even get a t-shirt.

  24. monkey-boy 24

    Let’s face it it could only be the ‘right’ who would send anything resembling white-powder through the post. The ‘left’ would be too busy taking it up their noses… ‘For the Revolution’ of course….

    Or so I have heard…

  25. Phil 25

    Wrong way around MB, pure cocaine still the last great elitist drug – a fond friend of National party stalwarts like the market trader and high flying lawyer.

  26. An interesting comment by Jafapete on his blog

    “Update: That said, whipping up hate and pandering to extremists doesn’t just apply to the right, as Redbaiter points out in a comment below.”

    I think we could all, righties AND lefties,accept JP’s wisdom 🙂

  27. Tim Ellis 27

    SP, I find it equally surreal that people like Irish call him “Dad”, while giving him a good telling off. When I was growing up, it was the other way around.

  28. slightlyrighty 28

    wasn’t me, but I haven’t figured out how to send white powder by E-mail?

    Any hints?

  29. Barnsley Bill!!… Robinsod, you should be working on your ranter’s block rather than spraying accusations.

    This is more likely to be like mallard suggesting a waterfront stadium to help Helen off the canvas over the 850k they trousered at election 2005 than some nappy wearing right wing nutjob.
    Classic diversionary tactics, something taught in the poli science degree course at Auckland Uni in the 60’s and 70’s perhaps?
    Oh, and Rob, why no new posts on your blog? Me and your other two regular visitors are missing it 🙂

  30. Oh, and yes IP… Sunny Bay of Islands is the current seat for the Barnsley famiglia.

  31. Felix 31

    sr that does not make any sense? I think?

  32. gobsmacked 32

    Barnsley Bill: one minute on the internet will tell you the accused’s name, location, age, occupation etc, all in the public domain. If you want to check out your conspiracy fantasies, just pick up the phone.

  33. Billy 33

    BB,

    There is a wealth of new and insightful material at ‘sodblog. Well, a picture of a donkey and a Lord, anyway.

  34. Felix 34

    And that’s probably about as insightful as we need to get before noon.

  35. I like reading sodblog, the real humour and polite comments are the complete opposite of what we have come to expect when he is in other people’s homes. I have been offline for almost a week and missed the white powder arrest story. I only found this because my new VRWC server was delivered by Lord Ashcroft to kerikeri airport at the weekend. We had a great time, shared a few roast babies and spent an hour or two throwing litter out of the car window.

  36. Barnsley Bill, I’m surprised to hear that you righties have started littering as well.

  37. littering, polluting, plotting. The only thing we have yet to master is lying in unison and getting the media to not ask the real questions.

  38. gobsmacked 38

    Here’s an update on the “white powder” story:

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/dailynews/4678735a6002.html

    Credit to the Taranaki Daily News for following it up. And to the cops.

  39. Billy 39

    Surely I win something for this prediction:

    MIA

    And I don’t want any of that useless class consciousness.

  40. Tane 41

    Billy, brilliant. A triumph spoiled only by your failure to enter the correct link at the crucial moment.

  41. Anita 42

    Billy,

    How about your own gold-painted statuette of ‘Sod?

  42. Tane 43

    Why would he need another one of them?

  43. Billy 44

    My current statuette is not anotomically correct.

  44. Billy 45

    Fcuk:

    “anatomically”

  45. gobsmacked 46

    Taranaki Daily News:

    “Inside the letter, that told the PM to get out of the country “while you still can”, the defendant had stapled a fold and filled it with a teaspoon of flour.

    Two days later the letter was opened in the Beehive mail room on the eighth floor.

    On discovery of the white powder a full-scale emergency operation commenced that included the floor being sealed, emergency services called and the four staff who had come into contact with the letter were isolated and subject to a decontamination shower.

    The powder was sent to ESR for examination.

    The floor remained in lockdown until the following morning, preventing staff from working and the mail room was sealed for a further four days until the powder was confirmed as flour.”

    Still, it’s not like he did anything EVIL like say, a Google joke. If he’d done that he’d have been a real Menace To Society, and would have to be Exposed by the Fearless Media.

    But Taranaki’s such a long drive, and reporters might get their shoes dirty. Let’s just do stories on people who live in Auckland.

  46. r0b 47

    Fcuk: “anatomically’

    How else?

    Brilliant call by Billy though.

  47. Billy 48

    Yeah, I want a job on that Sensing Murder.

  48. Tim Ellis 49

    Is your statuette of a kangaroo?

  49. Draco TB 50

    Taranaki Daily News:

    I think the full costs of the cleanup operation, the lost productivity and the police work should be charged to the culprit. These righties do, after all, believe in being tough on crime.

  50. Tim. he’s an ass, reading a book about asses.. i think it’s deep somehow

  51. Deep??? WTF is deep about that??? You’re all asses and this ass loves you for it!
