Weekly news round up

What a week!

Number 1: A man sells a 1980′s washing machine for $5,160 due to a very imaginative description he wrote for it on Trade Me. That truly shows the power of the written word and the stupidity of the company that bought the machine. An advertising agency should give the seller a job as a copywriter.

He’s now branched out into T-shirts featuring pictures of the dinosaur he saw when a portal to another dimension opened above the violently shaking washer.

Number 2: On Tuesday Dr Pita Sharples proposed that maori should be able to go to university without meeting the appropriate entry requirements. He appeared not to know that anyone over the age of 20 can be accepted into university as an adult student without pre-qualifications.

He back tracked today to suggest that maori attend learning centres where they learn to write essays. Isn’t that a secondary school?


Number 3: Lawyer Chris Comesky uses the “David Carradine” defence theory suggesting the death of An An Liu was as the result of a consensual sex act involving a tie. Enough said. I’m hoping there will be a verdict tomorrow. Do juries work in the weekend?


Number 4: Scam artist Gerard Otimi continues to charge $500 for a worthless immigration stamp to desperate Pacific Island over stayers. It appears to be an almost perfect crime as Stuff reported tonight:

The police have launched an investigation but so far no complaints have been laid.

The overstayers fear being sent home if they approach the authorities, and many of them appear to believe Mr Otimi’s visas really do mean they can legally stay in New Zealand.

Once Mr Otimi was found out he offered unrepentant and obscure justifications for his actions, in some way suggesting that he was highlighting the plight of these people, but pocketing $45,000 in the process.

The $6.7 million virgin

Natalie DylanSlutty looking Natalie Dylan (probably not her real name) is selling her virginity to the highest bidder. According to news reports the leading bid currently stands at $6.7 million dollars. Watch out Trade Me.

Wow, what a great idea. This follows on from her sisters stunning idea to be a prostitute for three weeks in order to fund her university education.

Natalie obviously comes from a creative and entrepreneurial family. This is much better and easier than that clever dick (he was a man) who sold one million pixels for $1 million dollars. Natalie only has to have sex once, and with a millionaire.

A question though. Does Natalie have to prove she’s a virgin? If I was the millionaire currently at the top of the bidding scale I’d want to know I was paying for the real thing.

I like the photo too…it looks a bit like Natalie’s head doesn’t belong to her body – like it should be somewhere else…

Good luck to them both – the winner and Natalie. She’ll be able to give great advice once she has finished her masters degree in Family Psychology.

Tip # 1: Don’t sell your virginity to the highest bidder.
