My spawn

May 3rd, 2012 at 4:06 pm by David Farrar

I spoke to the Northern Region of the National Party on Monday night on the MMP review. Was a very good discussion. Somewhat amused that on almost every issue I had to say “This is the National Party view, and this is my view” as they differ a fair bit. However it led to some good questions and discussion.

But wanted to share the funniest part of the evening, which is when I was being introduced. The speaker said I had become well known through Kiwiblog, and how this had spawned off and .

I immediately quipped that I didn’t think Cameron would be too happy being described as my , which got a fair bit of laughter. I then added that I wasn’t sure I was too happy with it either – which got even more laughter.

Of course (according to Open Parachute) Whale is the most read blog in New Zealand, and Cactus Kate has a dedicated following also, so my “spawn” are doing very nicely.

Technically Kiwiblog is the spawn of NZ Pundit, a blog I still miss. Gordon, Craig and Grant were a good team.

    Who was the “speaker”? I suggest that “speaker” is now dead as s/he will have NZ’s two most evil and dedicated bloggers firing up bullets from AK-47′s at s/he’s face in a gun range. It wasn’t fucking Hooton was it?

    And how would you phrase the metaphor of being spawned from DPF’s blog?

    To be spawn of DPF’s bloins?

    I can’t (and don’t want to) even imagine the size of the woman you shagged to spawn an Orca! :)

    Hang on.

    Don’t Orca’s eat Penguins?

    Never realised that sort of sex act would result in offspring!

    Its Cactus Kate. that makes me wont to burst into a rendition of the Hedge Hog song
    http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/song-midis/Hedgehog_Song.htm

    You can order or shoo ‘im, or run a knife through ‘im
    The one thing you cannot do is stick it to ‘im.
    If you try to seduce ‘im, you’ll end in a fix,
    His prickles defend him against rampant pricks.

    You can bugger the ram, you can bugger the lamb,
    You can bugger the ewe, though the wether’s a sham,
    You can bugger the tiger (it may caterwaul)
    But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

    Quite a delicacy with the Romany
    Baked in clay with a few sprigs of rosemary
    I would try slow roast over Tea Tree with Horopito,and Rata honey marinade

    Its all that spaghetti like stuff you see on the road after one has split open Griff that makes me feel that a nice bit of fillet would be more desirable for a nosh with my chips.

    However, fortunately, I have always been relatively wealthy.
    I suspect a future Alison Holst cookbook for the poor will feature many hedgehog recipes once the Asian invasion is over.

    Perhaps you could contribute a few? :)

    Understand this johnboy It worries me greatly
    The failure in recognizing the culinary delights available at the perimeters of our highway network
    Recently alive protein such is available combined with the readily renewed herbs such as thistle puha watercress and nettle can make a delectable meal
    It is not only about cost it also allows the exploration of the multitude of taste in our natural environment.

    make them eat weeds and vermin :twisted:
