    7: The V8 car race (hope we didn't have to name the sponsors or anything else that might suggest I know anything about it).

    And never mind Hobbes, how many houses are on Maryan Street? (stole that concept from someone that I can't quite recall, earlier today).

    7: The Amazing Race. After 13 seasons, it's just not that amazing.

    Geez, what have you guys got against petrol-heads? Or is it just the Tron that you hate?

    Oo, Jake, nearly made me change my mind there. But no.

    I'm stoked it's in the Tron! And not in my front lawn (Victoria Park)

    Surely we hate The America's Cup more than V8's ?

    I don't think that qualifies as a race any more. Maybe in the 80s...

  • Emma Hart,

    Not that I want to spoil anyone's fun (mostly mine) so keep answering this and any of the other questions. Otherwise I shall have to go back to working.

    But FletcherB wins. Not only is it America's Cup Lawyer Racing, but in the true spirit of the season, he betrayed his own beliefs to deliver the populist answer. Well done that man.

    Points to Haydn too for his hilarious ironic post-modern anti-Semitism.

    Aw man, I knew someone woiuld have the guts that I lacked.

    Didn't that kind of evolve into a never ending court case?

    well that was my forth choice, after V8s, Jews, the English (starting with Barrymore).

    The 30km Walk - in fact any "walking" race. They just look so stupid, and they should ALL be disqualified.

  • Joanna,

    4/ All the current leaders of New Zealand's political parties are on a plane. It crashes into the Andes with no hope of rescue for weeks. Whose delicious corspe do you save for last?

    I think this question is worth discussing in its own right, because I think your logic is flawed. I think you should eat the most delicious person first. I know that many people will eat their broccoli first at dinner so that they can finish on the good thing, but I think in this case two things should be considered:

    a) When you've got a bottle of really great wine and a bottle of crap wine, you drink the good one first so that you're a little bit drunk by the time you get to the other one and it therefore tastes better
    b) What if the meat starts to rot over the course of the weeks, and you end up wasting the most tasty person of all because you have to throw it away?

    Also, I'm hoping that you'd need an introductory course to get you into the taste of human flesh, and therefore it might be easiest if you start with the most delicious, right?

    3. you might get rescued and then you'll look like an idiot if you started off with Rodney Hide and the rescue crew leaked it to the media.

  • Leopold,

    4/ I'd go with Joanna on this one. Start with the richly marbled steaks of Hide, then a roast Dunne (something could be done with the bouffant to decorate the dish), then a richly wine-marinated hotpot of winstone, followed from some healthy, though rather dull nibbling on the scrawny offerings of Jeanette, John and Helen, to be capped by a monster boil-up of Tariana - with enough left over on the bones to serve for another meal
