John Key's cannibalism joke gives international press indigestion
Key's 'cannibalism joke' picked up by global media
International media are having a ball with Prime Minister John Key's Tuhoe "cannibalism joke" and his subsequent "passive-aggressive" apology.
Oh. My. God, he's made the International press headlines with his hilarious thigh-slapping- country-club-good-'ole-boy jokes. When it comes to race relations comedy, John Key is like a white Chris Rock minus the humor, intelligence, grace, appreciation of historical injustice and dress sense.
How did he manage to turn a Tourism event into a multi-million dollar global advert for cannibalism? How did he do that? And then to have the audacity to do his blank faced "I'm being self deprecating" - someone please check his meds.
There isn't a fine line between self deprecating and self destroying, but somehow Key has managed to find it. I wonder what David Letterman's next top ten will be...
