Scoop Wins Award For Use Of Toilet Humour

Scoop is delighted to report the following from this week's edition of the Listener.

"As one with a great deal of respect for the judiciary in general and Justice Smellie in particular ,and who lives with a surname that is not immune to the attentions of the witless-would be humourist it pains me somewhat to bring this to wider notice, but the quality of the headline is such that it cannot allowed to go unrecorded. It appeared on the Scoop news site above a small item concerning the judges award of nearly $50,000 to a woman employee in a sexual harassment case, who, among other indignities, had had her buttocks fondled: ‘Smellie’s Bottom Decision Outrageous – Libertarianz Deputy’".

- Columnist Paul Little in the Listener.

The full quotation and link from Scoop on March 21 were….

Smellie's Bottom Decision OutrageousLibertarianz Deputy Leader Richard is outraged at Justice Smellie's decision to award a woman nearly $50,000 for having her bottom patted by her boss. See... A Smack For A Pat - Employment Law Smells [1] in the Politics wire.
