FUNNY TO A POINT: Vandals last week made a greasy alteration to one of Porirua City Council's promotional billboards.
Relevant offers

Porirua - it's finger lickin' good?

One of the city council's new billboards, erected at the start of the year to promote Porirua's vibrancy and diversity, was last week turned into: A) A KFC promo, B) A drunken lark, C) Mean-spirited jibe at the Pacific community, or D) All of the above.

The 4.2m x 2.4m sign at the southern entrance to Porirua on State Highway 1 features award-winning barbershop trio Island Boys United.

It was defaced last Thursday night, but rather than tag or rip holes in the billboard, the vandals stuck KFC buckets into the hands (and in once case, on the head) of the young crooners.

Empty wine bottles could be seen at the foot of the billboard.

Shouldn't it have people of various ethnicities then?

It's a mildly amusing cheap shot.

More racist than funny.

I'm pretty sure most people from the pacific community wouldn't be outraged by this or anything, as they seem to have a good handle on self-deprecating humor already.

But it's just not funny enough to escape the mire of cheap race jokes that seem to be coming increasing permissible amongst people who should know better.

I blame television show such as bro town which make light of race. Failing that, i blame the boy racers or the lack of new recruits going into the police, how is somebody my age supposed to feel safe walking the streets?

Link to the full story: http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/communities/kapi-mana-news/2347768/Vandals-show-greasy-sense-of-humour

Joseph Mika, who features on the billboard, said he was shocked at the stereotyping, while Porirua deputy mayor Litea Ah Hoi was not amused ... well, maybe just a little.

She said she could see the funny side, but also the negative connotations of the act, mocking the stereotype of Pacific people having a soft spot for Kentucky Fried.

Bro town is juvenile shit.

Police recruitment needs work.

If you buy into the stereotype that all polynesians like KFC then this is definitely racist

only if you buy into the fact that they are all pink, yellow or green and are made of a marshmallow/candy foam. and, for arguments sake, that all eskimos are inuits.

And the intent of Eskimo lollies is to degrade an ethicity

I don't think KFC is part of island culture, if they were eating chicken from an umu then yes..
