Of course we paid $10 000 to get John Key onto Letterman to do the Top 10, have you seen his stilted, shit eating grin performance? We're lucky David didn't charge us a million for that embarrassment. After the cannibalism jokes, the fake gay mincing to launch the Rugby World Cup volunteers uniforms and his hilarious comments on blaming poor people for needing food parcels, Key's sense of humor is like his Hawaiian mansions, expensive and detached from reality.
When we thought Key had been invited, it felt as if NZ had crossed some great cultural threshold to be invited to the lite entertainment throne of Pax Americana, only to learn John just bought his way in.
It feels like finding out that Santa Clause isn't actually fond of children at all and does it for the pay cheque from Coke Cola and Boeing's Military Subsidiary.
