Joel Cosgrove we want you

May 20, 2008

Dear Joel Cosgrove

Please stop working for the Workers Party, they’re no good. They’re all about sad stuff. We all know that your true affiliation lies with the DAFT Party of NZ. That comical beard, all those witty things you say in your Presidents column in Salient each week, those t-shirts you wear at inappropriate times. The helmets, sailors hats, right down to the way you talk… you’re exactly what we’re looking for in a candidate! We’ll make you smile, and people will realise when you play silly pranks for ineffectual reasons that you’re just DAFT!

Please please reconsider your political leanings

Alternate China policy

April 6, 2008

Polls have just come in, and China has suffered a major loss in consumer confidence. This spells bad tidings for the next three quarters. The DAFT Party have come up with a solution that will bolster the failing brand image that China has cultivated in the past 60 years, so that consumer confidence will return and China, the brand will once again be a fashionable accessory.
