If you are over 100 and still kind of active , I suggest you get registered for the World Masters Games. Seriously!!! A 101 year old Indian woman is cashing in on the fact she is the only one competing in the over 100s event. So far she has 17 gold medals to her name after winning the 100m sprint in New Zealand. She finished in 1 minute and 14.58 seconds. Putting that into perspective, it’s 1 minute 5 seconds slower than Usain Bolt. Just saying.
A nicely presented Asian man had his passport photo rejected by software run by New Zealand’s department of internal affairs. The embarrassing blunder is just awks on so many levels.
A hotel in New Zealand has had enough with unsightly bulges and has banned customers wearing Lycra bicycle shorts. Yep, enough. Management said “when you’re trying to concentrate on your breakfast you just want to see the sausages on your plate.” Fair call.
This is why I could never be a newsreader…..
When a New Zealand customer decided to knick a tip jar after purchasing a meal at a local fast food joint he scored a grand total of $6.77. Unfortunately in his haste he left his $9.92 meal behind. Loser.
With a kitty crisis in New Zealand, SPCA and Uber are joining forces to offer a Friday “kitten in your office” to companies around Wellington . For $30 you can have a little feline delivered to your office and let loose around your work space. The 15 minute visit is designed to inspire people to adopt a pet. When the idea was first tested in the USA over 300 kittens were adopted. Hmm, what could possibly go wrong?
PSST You can book a kitty via the Uber app.
OK people, when giving a false name to police be really careful that the name you give doesn’t belong to a guy with a “breaching bail conditions” arrest warrant. Just saying. When a Kiwi driver was pulled over by the cops he decided to give a fake name to avoid being busted for driving while disqualified, unfortunately the name he gave was in the system and he was immediately thrown in jail. It was only while appearing in court under the other guys charges that police realized it wasn’t the right person.
