Assuage your existential dread.
As many of you will know, thespian and winemaker Sam Neill is one of the greatest New Zealanders ever, living or dead. What you may not know is that he is currently at the helm of one of the greatest twitter accounts in our country’s history.
While Sam travels often to film such blockbusters as Thor: Ragnarok and The Guinea Pig Club (which, before you get your hopes up, is about WWII, not actual Guinea Pigs), he has of late been spending a great deal of time on the farm, documenting his many shenanigans for all to enjoy.
In these dark times, social media is not often a place one goes to for relief or that elusive feeling known as ‘pleasure’ - but contained within the account that is @TwoPaddocks are many millions of moments that will gently assuage your existential dread and incrementally restore your faith in humanity.
Why? Let us explain.
Sam Neill is woke.

There is no such thing as a 'decent' white supremacist. There are no 'good' Nazis. They are the scum of the earth. Clear? @realDonaldTrump— Sam Neill (@TwoPaddocks) August 17, 2017
