I read Herald.co.nz regularly, so was unsurprised to see the following screen present itself to me.

What we have here in this very bad screen grab is a big heading saying, “Recession deepens with latest GDP result”. The article is here. Directly next to that is a cheery Christmas picture with the caption, “Lighting up the world for Christmas”.

You can bet all those lights were bought from China!

Who says you can’t have accidental irony.

(Oh, in case you’re wondering, the country is going broke because of the amount of crap we’re buying from overseas…)
