What’s where

Weekend Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

To Hong Kong, where I meet toprank­ing of­fi­cials at a lav­ish ban­quet in my hon­our. Ev­ery­one laughs at my jokes and they take a great in­ter­est in my views on world af­fairs. “Speak­ing of war,” I said, “there’s some­thing I’d like to ask. In the wake of threats of mis­sile strikes against Aus­tralia by North Korea, can a North Korean mis­sile reach New Zealand?” They look con­fused and ask why I would want to know that. I ex­plain that it’s a mat­ter of no lit­tle in­ter­est to the peo­ple of New Zealand, who I am proud to serve as in­terim Prime Min­is­ter. Their faces fall. “Oh,” one of them says, “there’s been a mis­un­der­stand­ing. We thought you were John Oliver.” Quick crossword
