It's that 'nightclub in Napier' joke again

Satire in The Listener. Jon Bridges tries to make the most of one joke.

  1. OK, that opening comment is silly. I very much doubt any of you guys said that. I know I wouldn't. Greeting all in a group without asking if they want to be greeted wouldn't infringe on rights. I know it's just a joke, but I think it goes to far.

    Other than that, though, it's pretty funny.

  2. LOL - a delightful read. Got me thinking about Zed Zed Top and the NZ fan club....Zed Zed Under.

  3. I didn't know it, it's fairly funny, but sizzles a bit at the end.

  4. I was interviewed on National Radio when I first lodged my court case and Jon Bridges was also on the programme. That's when he came up with the "'Libertarianz' sounds like a nightclub in Napier" joke so he appears to have been working on this gag for four months.
