From the Great Comedy Debate 1999 (It is better to marry than to burn)
"Fiji blazed on, words coup were still pronounced with a 'p' and used to keep chickens in it." "What need did we have of marriage, we had tans." "Suddenly the cry of sanctity of marriage echoed across the land. Banished were the 'Young and the Restless', 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. And so, 'The Days of Our Lives' were changed forever. Coincidentally enough, it was the same time my parents decided to come to New Zealand. In a decision I can only put down to a hurried, late night flight and too many gins, my parents decided to settle in Glenfield. Here, the story might very well have ended. Me, doomed to a life of suburban mediocrity, married with 2.4 children, with only the remains of a fading tan, my fire extinguished forever. However, destiny, she moves in mysterious ways. For it was here I met my great life teacher, my wise woman, my mentor, Rachel Hunter." "We settled into our classroom, remedial woodwork, I working on my spice rack, Rachel working out what a ruler did."
