Warehouse Safety insists they’re on the money

Money, money money money…..! Oh wait, it’s just vouchers pretending to be money. Maligned and reviled business The Safety Warehouse has copped a lot of flak for firing vouchers when people were expecting cash. Now, they’re firing a media statement. A whiny, self-serving, finger pointing media statement. One that you can only read in full if you’ve got an Instagram account, apparently. But don’t worry – in the interests of free speech, and for your amusement, The Stuffed Herald will provide screens of the full statement. Information wants to be… Read More

“I’m the real victim here!” – Geoff speaks out

Coronavirus: Mobs forming to ‘deal with’ outbreak

Coronavirus infections are on the rise around the world, and New Zealand is joining other countries in forming organised mobs. A call to action is going viral online, stating that “healthy people need to pull together to stop the spread of coronavirus.” “We need to gather as many resources as possible. Raid the supermarkets. The end is nigh,” said one New Zealand-based prepper. “If anyone gets in your way or takes what you reach for, knock the fucker out. Survival of the fittest.” In addition to this advice, mob organisers… Read More

Bridges to use ‘Jon Snow’ argument as defense in court

In a landmark move that may well set a precedent for future legal cases, it has been revealed that National Party leader Simon Bridges intends to use the ‘Jon Snow’ argument when he faces investigators. “I didn’t know any of this. I have no information in relation to the other donation,” Bridges said in a statement on Tuesday.

“NIMBY is as bad as the N word” – NIMBYs

NIMBY types around the country are rallying for a new cause – having the word NIMBY reclassified as an offensive slur. “It’s making us look bad,” one man claimed. “We have the right to try block people from doing things we don’t like.” NIMBY is an acronym which translates to Not In My Back Yard, and is used to describe an individual or group who opposes an activity purely on the basis that it is happening near them. NIMBYs have been particularly active in New Zealand of late, opposing a… Read More

Youths ready to take on Baby Boomers in ‘heaviest drinkers’ stoush

Youths of New Zealand, it’s time for an uprising. Take the power, and the booze, back. A secret Facebook group has been created to prevent Baby Boomers from usurping the title of “biggest drinkers” from New Zealand’s young people. An article published yesterday caused an uproar when it was suggested Baby Boomers are more likely to engage in harmful drinking behaviors than youths. Baby Boomers is the term given to people born between 1946 and 1964. By comparison, today’s youth would be Generation Z, born between the late 1990s and… Read More

Stuff News launches new “Seek and Destroy” Squad

Stuff news, in an unprecedented act of gutter journalism, has launched a new form of reporting today. The Seek and Destroy Squad aims to ‘name and shame’ persons who are not yet suspected of any criminal activity, in an attempt to stir up hostility against the named person. The goals of the squad resemble a vigilante approach, where a target is selected and subjected to ‘street justice’ rather than going through due process. An article on the house explosion that occurred in Christchurch on Friday, published this morning, targeted a… Read More
