Don't worry mate , you're not alone, I missed it too.  I expect you were a bit like me, too engrossed in trying to find your soulmate and the masterchef recap  😝 .





People often mistake me for an adult due to my age.

An RNZ article ostensibly about a new portrait of the Queen has a photo captioned "The Queen's new portrait". They've cropped about 60% of it out.

A friend of ours has a canned response if you ask him what he’s been doing since you last saw him.

“Sh*t and stuff”.

I think they left some words off the new logo…!

Gotta love Auckland journos who get back an OIA the contains a "secret story" about something happening in the South Island..

 

Here's todays example

 

"Costco Wholesale's second $100m NZ store: Secret Government briefing paper reveals details"

 

"Now, a secret Government briefing paper has disclosed the potential location of the second store and what affect Costco's expansion could have on our grocery market"

 

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/costco-wholesales-second-100m-nz-store-secret-government-briefing-paper-reveals-details/H3QSB2DZBARMTLLEZCWB4OG62I/

 

Or the could have done a google search and found this article from 6 months ago 

 

" Selwyn District Council planning manager Ben Rhodes has confirmed the details. "A resource consent has been granted for Costco, as a large format membership warehouse outlet, in Iport," he said. "

I am more interested to understand how a journalist wouldn't know the difference between affect and effect.

"Clover Park Gang" gang pad? Some amazing feat? Nope. Clover Park is just a suburb in South Auckland, so it makes sense the bullet originated there.

Today's one is from One roof here

Headline:
"House prices take a bath in the property price ‘bath tub’"

Quote from story:

"The nationwide average property value fell 0.8% in May, according to CoreLogic’s latest figures."

I guess the joke is on me for clicking, but honestly
I'm not sure the English language will have sufficient words for them to express an actual 15% drop.

I believe American English considers those interchangeable.

I like the new logo and Stuff's new splash is significantly faster.
