TradeMe on TradeMe data integrity crimes

This is what we call in the rocket science biz, messy data.  Yip, it’s a techie term.  Sorry to throw that out there at ya, no warnings, nuffink.  Crimes against the integrity of data really get me going.  In a bad way.  Ahem.

The annual Auckland City Mission Winter Appeal TradeMe Auction, also known as TradeMe on TradeMe kicks off tomorrow.  NZ slebs such as Shorty St stars, Dai Henwood and Peter Urlich are offering various events and experiences, with them tagging along, and the final cash bid goes to the Mission’s Winter Appeal.  Tis a great idea.

However, the folk at NZRealityTV have spotted some dubious categorisations for each auction.  Someone is trying a little hard to be humorous.  Bless.

Breakfast with Tem Morrison in Rotorua is listed under frying pans and woks, meanwhile lunch at Souless with Ali Williams and Casey Green is listed under doors, windows and mouldings.  Are they trying to mess with my mind?  

Come on people, use the categories properly, I do not want two promo girls  turning up when I go searching for new and used poultry equipment.  Who does?  Ok, all you chicken farmers with your hands up, ok, put ’em down for crying out loud, go now, go focus on buying a Hova-Bator incubator egg turner, like you’re meant to be doing.

Lita predicts that Dan Carter’s previously worn, no confirmation whether washed, All Black shorts will generate the creepiest of questions.
