    raise the GST rate from 12.5 per cent to 4Π per cent -- or, in other words, approximately 12.5663706143592 per cent

    -- which would be a minimum bound, of course, since National keep saying they want to grow the pi.

    I could well believe this. Perhaps there is a parallel narrative concerning Phil Goff and laxatives.

    Not only a wit in himself, but a cause of wit in others!

    Always sniff to get pi!

    [There is no other site I know of that you can tell pi jokes - love it.]

    Anything that might prevent the build-up of mucus in Rodney Hide's brain, I'm in favour of.

  • Angus Robertson,

    "So, of course, he invited me to be president of the ACT party. Those were great days. Roger and I used to pass around a tube of Ados S4, and churn out policy as fast as we could type."

    Oh, I'd always pictured ACT as snorters of homeopathic cocaine. Something bought back in the eighties cut many times with baking soda, lactose and baby formula making it effectively the memory of blow.

    which would be a minimum bound, of course, since National keep saying they want to grow the pi.

    Would that be, err, blowing up the pi? Wealthier communities together.

    A very brief message as I try to distract an energetic toddler with blueberries... just to say that I am totally in awe of the Π jokes on this thread. Makes me so pleased that I chose Π rather than e.

    National keep saying they want to grow the pi

    If you want to grow the pi, then just blow on it.

    Tax cuts make so much more sense when you're half-cut on some fine Araldite.

  • linger,

    Possibly National were planning to grow the pi by blowing on it -- although (as we have recently seen on another thread ), somewhat predictably, Key has had great difficulty formulating any coherent policy on blow.

    Alternatively, if they were going to blow it up, it should be noted that that would leave them with nothing but pi in the sky. (Which would nevertheless have the advantages of being (i) a legal natural high, and (ii) a consistent approach for them.)

    4pi GST? I thought they were the party of freedom - how dare the nanny state force liberal concepts of Euclidean Geometry on my personal consumption decisions.
    And frankly I don't trust any number that can't be written as a fraction - you know what else can't be written as a fraction? Stalin

    My pi joke just went cold.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand_Security_Intelligence_Service
    Also in 1981, an SIS operative inadvertently left a briefcase containing sandwiches, Listener magazine and a diary on a journalist's fence in Wellington. The briefcase was commonly but mistakenly described as containing a Penthouse magazine and pie.
