NZ Minister Gets Dildo in Face After TPP Signing

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Mass protests over the TPP in New Zealand did not pass by without tomfoolery; a day after thousands took to the streets of Auckland, Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce was hit with a sex toy thrown by a woman, while speaking at Waitangi.

Joyce was an easy target, giving an interview to the press, following the February 4 signing of the TPP agreement, hailed as  "the biggest trade deal in a generation.`

But several thousand protesters had gathered earlier to march against the agreement, and a sizable presence was at Waitangi as well, four hours north of the original march, in Auckland."

It`s par for the course for politicians to be hit on the face with a pie by angry constituents, and such an occurrence is rarely covered by the press.

But a protestor furious with Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce for signing the TPP agreement, hurled a dildo at the hapless politician, and it landed squarely in his mouth.

The momentous incident was captured on video, and needless to say it has gone viral. Nobody really cares about trade agreements or New Zealand politics, but who doesn`t enjoy watching a politician be humiliated?

Activists oppose the TPP on the belief it will lead to job losses, and stagnant wages, but the protestor`s genius form of protest will undoubtedly guarantee that the sale of dildos will skyrocket.
