Has another week passed you by with nary a fleeting glance at the weird and wonderful world of online content? Get the goss with another handy installment of Keeping up with the Kontentsphere.
LORDE OF THE DANCE
Lorde performed at the VMA’s :)
But she had the flu :(
So instead of singing... she danced! :O
Some were thrilled. Others were baffled. A few fans were even disappointed, though this latter group were quickly met with a stern reminder that dissent will not be tolerated.
Let that be a lesson to you.
BILL ENGLISH’S DELICIOUS WEEK
While it’s been bit of a fizzer of a week in the world of politics for our poor Prime Minister Bill English, who sank woefully further in the polls, thankfully it was quite a different story with regards to his many noms.
On Tuesday he had cake - THE BEST FRUITCAKE HE’S EVER EATEN.
I'm a big fan of fruit cake but the slice I had at Abbeyfield retirement village in Nelson today was some of the best I've ever eaten! pic.twitter.com/JMTk3aAGlt— Bill English (@pmbillenglish) August 29, 2017
You might think that sampling a cake of which you are a “big fan”, only to find it is it is the BEST VERSION OF THAT CAKE YOU’VE EVER HAD would be pretty unbeatable. Not so for ol’ Bill.
Highlight of the week - following up our ultra-fast broadband announcement today with an ultra-tasty steak and cheese pie. pic.twitter.com/jGvVXypsIy— Bill English (@pmbillenglish) August 30, 2017
Yes, that’s right: the BEST FRUIT CAKE BILL ENGLISH HAS EVER EATEN was no match for this “ultra-tasty” steak and cheese pie which quickly eclipsed all memory of that delicious cake.
And then to top it all off he had some “great” coffee.
Great coffee pit stop this afternoon at The Village Cafe in Whatawhata - a thriving local hub in the Waikato. pic.twitter.com/Ryyk8cdMeR— Bill English (@pmbillenglish) August 30, 2017
Good on ya Bill.
GILDA <3 NATIONAL
Speaking of Bill, however he may be doing in the polls, he can take comfort knowing he has at least one fan in the form of Real Housewife of Auckland Gilda Kirkpatrick.
National has more females, race shouldn't come to it but since you mention they're all white old men in labour too, lazy ones!! https://t.co/tBRsUKAoJZ— Gilda Kirkpatrick (@Strange_G) August 31, 2017
Gilda, who shot to fame as one of the housewives not to use or defend a racial slur, has been tweeting up a storm this week, and several other weeks for that matter, expressing her love for the National party.
No one tell the Greens.
BILL RALSTON vs THE YOUNG
Bill Ralston is an important man with important questions. This week he asked one:
Why am I going to pay for someone else's kid to go to university when my own kids are still paying off their own student loans?— Bill Ralston (@BillyRalston) August 28, 2017
I also have important questions:
Why am I going to douse your flaming house with water when my cousin’s house has faulty wiring?
Why am I going to lend you my phone charger when my dentist’s phone is on 16 percent as we speak?
Why am I going to water your houseplants while you're away when my hairdresser hasn’t taken leave in months?
THIS HORNY BIRD
