In news that left my both rocked, unsettled, and yes, a little disappointed the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key recently confirmed that he is not a space reptile sent to earth to enslave humanity.
“To the best of my knowledge, no. I’ve taken the unusual step of not only seeing a doctor but a vet, and both have confirmed I’m not a reptile … I’ve never been in a spaceship, never been in outer space, and my tongue’s not overly long either.”
Auckland resident Shane Warbrooke, who first posed the question via an Official Information Act request, said he was happy with (but unsurprised by) the president’s response. He did complain, however, that the government “waited the full 20 working days they are allowed before getting back to me.”
Notably the White House responded to similar allegations last year and dismissed them. Which you’ll note is not a denial or disproof.
