If bloggers were lined up across the politcial spectrum, the erstwhile MP for Eketahuna Alf Grumble would generally be at the blue end and the women at the Hand Mirror would be at the pink to red end.
But today they are in accord over the quest for the hottest businessswoman and hunkiest businessman.
Much more fundamentally, Alf is flabbergasted that the Fairfax clowns have the gall to contend:
Here at BusinessDay we take business very seriously.
. . . Yes, Alf is only too aware of the recessionary bite. It is chewing up jobs and it is corroding people’s investments.
That’s precisely why he doesn’t give a toss about who is the hottest or the hunkiest. . .
Deborah at The Hand Mirror says:
Mind you, it is at least an equal opportunity *headdesk*. They’re promising a poll on NZ’s hottest businessman tomorrow.
There’s a place for judging people on their appearances but it’s not the business pages of media which wish to be taken seriously and there are far more intelligent ways to bring a bit of lightness and humour if they feel the need to counteract the economic gloom.
