Better you should say nothing, as Stephen Harper does than say something stupid like the Prime Minister of New Zealand.
Prime Minister John Key found himself in hot water Thursday after joking about the indiginous people in his home and native land eating him for dinner.
During a speech to a tourism conference Thursday, Key joked about having dinner with the neighbouring Ngati Porou tribe, or iwi.
"The good news is that I was having dinner with Ngati Porou as opposed to their neighbouring iwi which is Tuhoe, in which case I would have been dinner, which wouldn't have been quite so attractive," Key said.
A settlement negotiator with the Tuhoe tribe, Tamati Kruger, told Radio New Zealand the joke was in poor taste.
