  • Hard News: Popular Paranoiac Politics,

    the return-to-feudalism of the Greens

    But hey, we’d have the world’s first Feudal Republic.

  • Hard News: The Public Address Word of…, in reply to JackElder,

    I'm seeing a nice Dr. Seussian dichotomy between the hat-twat twatcockers and hot-twat twatcockers. I imagine we'll discover in the end that our twatcocks are all the same underneath.

  • Hard News: The Public Address Word of…, in reply to Tom Beard,

    I have always heard "twatcock" to rhyme with "hot rock", but "twatock" clearly rhymes with "mattock" (a sadly underused word itself).

  • Hard News: Do you like what we've done…,

    Without trawling through 200+ responses, does anyone else really like the Typekit fonts (of those for whom they work properly)?

    FTR, I really like them (FF 3.6.12, Ubuntu 10.04 and FreeBSD 8).

    edit: Ah, I see you now, Anonymous Author.

    edit 2: Umm, the CANCEL button doesn't work when editing.

  • Hard News: Unreasonable people vote,

    don't you know the Constitution has an article written in invisible ink that says "none of the above applied to fags or rag-heads"?

    I've always assumed it's in the secret constitution given out to True (white, male, protestant) 'Mericans when they turn 21, much like the secret road rules you get when you buy a Mercedes or Porsche.

  • Up Front: Staying Civil,

    I wish there was a word for "person you are in a civil union with"

    Surely one half of a Civil Unit is just a Civil Half?

  • Hard News: Morning in Auckland,

    To be fair, I thought the overall tone of the Kiwiblog comments on this issue was relatively sane (no doubt partially due to DPF being so unequivocal for once). Even Redbaiter isn't arguing that he's in the majority - only that he's right.

    (PAS: "We Read Kiwiblog So You Don't Have To")

    if there were a civil emergency here

    Well the Newmarket Viaduct is closed this weekend remember, which seems to be the apocalypse.

    Done.

  • Hard News: This is what we have to work with,

    I just received this message from my work web filter proxy:

    You cannot access the following Web address:
    http://werewolf.co.nz/

    The site you requested is blocked under the following categories: Pornography

    It worked fine last month, so someone must have reported it since then. Where am I going to get my decent-independent-nz-journalism-porn now?
