Another cutting-edge, bleeding brilliant Facelift tonight.
- The grossly disfigured (and unreasonable) face of Paul Henry was reduced to a giggling pussycat when charming and evasive John Key tickled and coochy-cooed him into submission. ‘Little peanut’ is officially Lita’s new fave name for Paul.
- A robbery by a policeman at a Rotorua souvenir shop meant the shop owners were under suspicion as they had a “history of complaining about being robbed”. The outraged owners threatened to call 111 – “Good luck getting through”.
- The Air NZ Oz-troops-to-Iraq ferrying controversy was retroactively dealt to by Captain Clark’s safety demonstration of what to do in the event of a PR disaster, including gagging those involved and Mfat admitting blame.
- Helen Clark getting excited at Annette King’s robot offering as ‘the police officer of the future’, especially once she realises that “it can’t force anyone to have consensual sex”.
