    Yes, indeed, 红枣/hóngzǎo/red dates.

    How fantastic! My Mum used to buy them (dried) when I was a kid but I haven't seen them for many years. They're lovely chopped in sandwiches. As I recall they're less sweet and more flavourful than the middle-eastern variety.

    Wow, are those red dates?

    I’d argue that a great deal of an audience’s enjoyment of satire is the realisation that they are in on the joke – and that for them to be in on it, other people must not be.

    I'd say that satire is just material you can't take at face value. Some of the best satire begins plausibly and strings you along until that wonderful moment where it becomes too absurd to be borne.

    the best way to satirise the current state of NZ politics would be to produce a drama series about a competent government that engaged respectfully with its citizens.

    It took a lot of doing to let them drive it on our roads apparently.

    Can't decide if this is more Godard or Tati. ;-)

    Eating Media Lunch – was funny,so funny

    At times it was very funny, but the constant trolling for audience reaction I found tiresome and distasteful. "What do you think of NZ pussy?", for crying out loud. Not that funny the first time, but over and over again?
