No-Crap site is a complete waste of bandwidth

PRESS RELEASE: The Beehive

John Shaft, shadowy editor of political satire website The Beehive, today slammed National's "No-Crap" site, calling it "a complete waste of bandwidth."

Mr Shaft said, "The No-Crap website purports to contain political humour and mockery of National's political opponents, but is about as funny as a terminal illness. While it is certainly polished in design, it is empty in content - just like National's election campaign."

Mr Shaft said that voters wanting a decent fix of political tomfoolery need go no further than The Beehive, which has served up a unique brand of wit for several months. In addition, The Beehive is non-partisan. It makes fun of all politicians, irrespective of party persuasion.

"The Beehive is the only website that has broken the top stories about shenanigans in parliament. Who could forget the story about Tau Henare's hip-hop record, or the one about Act's plans to enlist a squadron of Daleks to exterminate single mothers?"

"Websurfers who are looking for mirth-provoking satire should steer clear of No-Crap and head straight for The Beehive. It is, quite frankly, the real crap."

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
