I predicted this

Stuff reports:

Bondage movie Fifty Shades of Grey has been dominating the Kiwi box office.

The film, depicting a sadomasochistic relationship between the two central characters, took $1.41 million on its opening New Zealand weekend, which is a record for any R-rated film.

Once Family First called for a boycott of the film, I predicted it would be a box office success. They really should be paid commission!

Internationally, Fifty Shades of Grey banked US$172m (NZ$229m) on its opening weekend, breaking box-office records for the month of February, for a movie made by a woman, and for an R-rated movie.

The film has a 26% average rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It will probably be the most widely watched yet critically damned film in history.

Fun at Harvard

December 4th, 2012 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

Terry at The Conservative is upset with Harvard. Why?

First with their approval of a bondage club, and the second with a flyer sent by one of their single-sex social groups inviting people to their club which included the following statement: ‘Jews need not apply.’ ‘Seriously, no f*****g Jews.’

I think a bondage club is an excellent campus club. Much more useful than a debating club where all they do is talk and argue. All the Vic DebSoc members would be far better employed to get their kink on, than spend an hour arguing for and against paid parental leave!

But what about this Jew hating club? Well here is the pamphlet for it:

Terry comments:

You will notice these liberals—when exposed to media attention—try to pass off the Jew hate as satirical.

Umm, I don’t think anyone could read the above flyer and not think it is satirical.

I’m reasonably sensitive to anti-semitism but I actually think the flyer is hilarious – it is satirising anti-semitism like Southpark does.
