It's a mock game show and quite good.

I honestly can't think of much good humour from down these parts, though. I mean, New Zealand produced Billy T. James, but I think a lot of his TV stuff really doesn't translate well beyond a New Zealand context.

Interesting I'll see what's on Youtube.

I imagine Billy T. James's act involves this: "what's the deal with sheep?!"

Unfortunately, Billy T. died well before the LOTR movies, in 1991. I loved his joke about how he was half-Maori and half-Scottish: half of him wanted to get pissed and the other half didn't want to pay for it. He also made a great remark in response to an assertion by a Maori supremacist activist. The activist commented on the high rate of suicide among young Maori men by remarking that they should take out a white when they kill themselves, so Billy T. asked "what about a half-caste like me? Should I just wound myself?"

Watched a Good News Week clip. The Umbilical Brothers doing a sketch of a New Zealand man getting drunk and reporting being sexually assaulted by a wombat. WTF?!

Are the drunk of New Zealand a prey to horny wombats?

That's really funny.

Interesting that NSW mentioned her. I looked around and thought of her as well after pfan's post.

I'm glad you are enjoying yourself, Screwtape.

Oh, that was classic. That was based on a real news story, where a guy in New Zealand really did call 111 to report that he had been raped by a wombat and been left speaking Australian.

Ever since I've gotten to know her my life has been the best it has ever been.

One of my favourite Good News Week jokes is when Paul McDermott is doing a mock Australian citizenship quiz.

A wombat is:
A). A marsupial
B). An implement for playing Wom
C). Wanted for rape in New Zealand


And then there's ...

"Our home is girt by ...":
A). Sea
B). Eh?
C). Bees

I would have loved to have heard that phone call.

Oh hell yes.

All of the news stories on Good News Week are actually real, that's the best part.

I don't know why this popped into my head but...

"A flock of sheep revoluted today after hearing the Pink Floyd song, Sheep. They were later caught found debating who was better Roger Waters or David Gilmour."
