Old Family labrador who messes on the carpet gets New Years Honours
Herald columnist humbled by award
Garth George never thought his achievements would land him on the New Year Honours list. The Rotorua resident has been named a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for services to journalism.
In the most bizarre Queens Honours list decision ever, 5000 year old Herald Columnist Garth George has been awarded the NZ Order of Merit for services to Journalism? Journalism? Award for crazy religious shit that isn't true maybe, but Journalism? That's like the Bill English Award for due diligence on the $4.8million PEDA scam, it's kinda nonsensical.
Garth George wrote that we shouldn't be concerned with rising sea levels because God promised Noah with a rainbow not to flood the earth again, and only last year explained that the reason why we can't fund his retirement is because, wait for it, you're going to love where this goes, we can't fund people's retirement at 65 because - we abort too many fetuses and that if we banned abortion we could afford his retirement. Cue open shocked mouth look now.
How does that warrant a bloody Royal handjob for services to Journalism? Brothers and sisters, that's a panel of lepers judging a beauty contest.
