Flight of the Conchords travel poster

My Auckland friend Rob rang the other day. He’s a journalist, so he wanted something – in this case a contact phone number for someone important I know and he doesn’t. (That’s the thing about being a journalist, you don’t really know famous people but you know people who do.) Knowing he would never leave his discomfort zone of Newton, I invited him to come and stay in the country for a weekend. Wake up and smell the cows, that sort of thing. And he said, after a thoughtful pause, “There’s no reason not to.”

Brilliant. That is so a travel poster in Murray Hewitt’s office in Flight of the Conchords. Totally in the spirit of:
New Zealand – like Scotland but further
New Zealand – take your mum
New Zealand – it's not going anywhere
And now:
New Zealand – there’s no reason not to

Pity it seems there won't be a third series. You could have got a writer's fee for that. Maybe $5 or so.

I'll hold out for $10. I have my pride, if nothing else.
