The Waiting For God Commission

Waiting for God

Let’s have a little competition – the NZ Retirement Commissioner, Diana Crossan, says she’s wanted a change of name for the Commission for several years, but no-one has coined a suitable name.

Waiting for God, and The Golden Years were suggested at Select Committee, but rejected (Un. Be. Lievable.)

We’ll think of a prize as we go along, maybe a bag of Kapiti Macadamia nuts, I’m sure we can lay our hands on one of those.

So have at it in the comments, we’re looking for the best suggested new name for the Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night Commission, the winning label will be forwarded to Ms Crossan.

Judges decisions are final & not to be questioned.

Andrew Llewelyn

Andrew Llewellyn likes to be recognised around town as Viggo Mortenson’s stunt double. But never is. Because he wasn’t. Used to own real black & beige sheep. And felt patriotic for it.

Speaking of Logan’s Run, what about calling it the Carousel Commission? If they introduced Carousel, then we wouldn’t have to bother with those annoying retirement savings.

Carousel? Are you referring to the Rogers & Hammerstein musical or the merry-go-round? Either way, all those loops will give them motion sickness.

 Neither. I’m referring to Logan’s Run, just like I said above. And if you want to know what the Carousel in Logan’s Run is, you can follow the link above.

 

This is how the intarwebs works.

When you think of it, what an awesome sounding word, shamble is.
