Comp winners bonanza

Cartoon newspaper

We had many excellent entries in our Finish the line cartoon contest, thanks for your wit. We’re spreading the love (beer, actually) with two winners.

From Philip O’Neill: Actually I’m in charge of subscriber-only content at NBR.
From Mike Hutcheson: No I’m an Art Director, that’s why I cant spell “hearsay”.

And the winner of the John Key competition is Wayne McDougall. Our pic showed John Key in a construction site, holding up a blank white t-shirt. Wayne’s caption was: Throw anything you like. With my poll ratings, nothing sticks.

A box of Steinlager Edge for you all.

And these lucky people were chosen at random from the StopPress newsletter mail list to win more prizes!

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
