The great NBR Veuve scandal!

August 2nd, 2010 at 9:20 pm by David Farrar

NBR is running a competition to win your weight in Veuve Clicuot.

My mate is in equal first place. Most of the VRWC are backing Busted as Busted winning means more Veuve than anyone else winning :-)

We also like her idea of a picnic on Frank Kitts Lagoon, as what she would do with it, if she wins.

So I’m backing Busted Blonde, and urge readers to follow the link and vote for her.

What is interesting is the person who is in equal first place with her. He has a lovely story:

Verve is my partners favourite drop of bubbles so since I have gone 18 years and not actually married her (make her and honest woman etc) I think I would call up Stu and Sem at The Wharf over on Aucklands North Shore and have a quiet family wedding

However Detective Whale has been at work.

First he discovers that the contestant quoted above has his status on Facebook as married. Whoops.

And then in another post, he details how the venue he mentioned is one of his clients which is a wee bit astro-turfing.

Whale even has discovered his weight, and reckons voting Busted will mean forks over an extra dozen bottles or so :-)

    I cannot, and will not, support anybody who wears sunglasses inside or places them on the top of their head.

    I’m trying but I really can’t get worked up about facebook saying “Married”. Under NZ law they effectively are if it’s been 16 years. Should the guy have chosen “it’s complicated” when it’s really pretty simple? I’m sure his partner would be pissed off if he put “single”.

    No man ever claims to be married if he isn’t….EVER.

    In actual fact it is the reverse, they claim to be not married when they are.

    The guy is a fraud and should be drummed out of the competition.

    (Fot….fond of worms?)

    Voted for her as instructed by Cactus several days ago. I will plead her case on my myspace blog tonight. I assume you don’t need a .co.nz email to vote. The lengths we go to to get DPF pissed for free :)

    How could anyone vote for the sort of dickhead who thinks Veuve is spelled “verve” in the first place?

    I just like the attitude of BB – she has my vote and I hope she has a wonderful party.
