Spotted this at the top of Howick today. Bwahahaha… Pfft!
Have you seen the doco on these lovely old folk … and the work they do in reaching other people positively.
Pfft … guess you havent.
Pfft bwaaaahaaaahaaa … mene mene tekel – upharsin …
My chuckling reference to Pfft was aimed at the obvious play on Obama’s 2008 slogan, not meant as judgement on the fine work (or otherwise) of these fine folk.
I also chuckled at Winston Peters’ use of ‘Can we fix it? Yes we can!’ from Bob the Builder …
Well you can shove your chillax up your arse ‘bro’
It wasnt a chuckling reference and would have relied upon those who follow american politics. Frankly your musical judgement is fairly poor at best .. but some slack can be cut for you due to your addiction to verbosity.
I dont even know who bob the builder is … a mate of yours?
The work of these folk IS fine – and your more refined cafe society mores probably wont allow for it.
If you had watched the doco on these lovely oldies in the US version … you would know that “yes we can-can” is NOT a play on Obama or any other fucking pollie of any shade anywhere. It is an actual bloody song.
Youre no better than homos – they took the word “gay” and now you want to politicise a song title in a typically cheap arse manner that ‘spots’ you as a potential car dealer with gold chains and grey patent leather shoes.
I agree. I am no better than homos. – P
You need to finish the sentence to gain a complete hold on context … and well you know it Pete. Stop trying to hijack my terribly fantastic comments ya bastard …
Sold any shitty beemers to unsuspecting wallies yet??
Do they know these krautwagens only have a first economic life of less than 100,000 kms before you need a mortgage or poor hearing to compensate …
Hey Ivan, re BMWs and 100,000 kms: well, that’s not my experience, and we’ve owned three so far.
This pic was taken at 4.30 today …
PS I haven’t sold one.
Your unfailing niceness is irritating.
Personally, I find unfailing respect is unfailingly nicer than dis-…
Three BMW’s for Peter? What does it all mean?
I suspect that Peter is a “lefty” liberal – not lefty in the traditional socialist working class militant lefty – but lefty from the modern champagne socialist and sickly liberal perspective.
This type of lefty is in many ways not very lefty at all.
They are generally horrified by the lack of liberalism in the reactionary working classes. Their perspective is not generally so much about economic conditions, because they are typically affluent anyway.
This world view tends to embrace trendier views than worrying about the economic circumstances of the poor – fox hunting, tree hugging and minority rights are examples of their flagship concerns.
New Labour in Britain was promoted largely by champagne socialist media type lovies based in Islington (such as say Stephen Fry). These media types would probably be horrified to be stuck in the same room as a traditional militant lefty type.
Three BMW’s could make sense?
ps. You know that BMW stands for Bob Marley and the Wailers?
It’s worse than that. I’m pretentious too, remember?:
I think I must be pretentious too.
Actually, the more I think about it … I have a green leather Filofax, drive a green BMW, use a Tizio angle-poise lamp, and Apple computers/tablets, and an iPhone.
I think the ‘horrified’ schtick is laying it on a bit thick. But ‘oh for the gift to see ourselves as others see us’.
Champagne socialist? I should be so lucky. Aren’t I just a working/middle class plonker? I think so.
Update: FOX hunting? Me? Of course! Are you mad? (Oh, you mean dem wittle foxes? …Oh.)
