Pressing questions of our time
One. Why is it that every time Shayne Carter appears in a press photo in a suit and tie, he looks like an undertaker? Evidence - latest issue of Real Groove. While you're having a lookee at that, check the funny ad for Kiwi Shoe Polish in the middle of the Shayne Carter interview. The dates are so far off the mark - did no-one at the ad agency check them? Not heard of Google?
Two. Teresa Gattung and her funny ol' take on customer relations. What's that about, aye? She says bend over, the customer obliges. Oh, got it.
Three. Are you smarter than your local MP? Take Judith Tizard's annual NZ Music Month Quiz for MPs and find out, download it from here.
