Call it a perk of living in a small country: when you ask the prime minister whether he’s secretly a reptilian from another planet, he may actually take the time to answer.

That was the hardball question—included in an Official Information Act (OIA) request—that New Zealand PM John Key found himself addressing in comments to the national press this week. He adamantly denied the charge that he was part of an extraterrestrial conspiracy.

“To the best of my knowledge, no,” Key said. “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’s Shane Warbrooke was the man who submitted the request to Key’s office; the form demanded, as well as data for Warbrooke’s UFO research, “any evidence to disprove the theory that Mr. John Key is in fact a David Icke style shapeshifting reptilian alien ushering humanity towards enslavement.” Icke is a British author who contends that a “Babylonian Brotherhood” of reptilian humanoids has infiltrated the highest levels of government and industry worldwide, suspending the rest of us in an illusory “dreamworld.”

Officially, Key’s chief of staff denied Warbrooke’s request, given that “the document alleged to contain the information requested does not exist or cannot be found,” so it’s nice that the New Zealand National Party’s leader got around to refuting the claim—even if that’s exactly what a reptilian would do. We’ve no doubt that here in the U.S., dozens of Freedom of Information Act requests positing a similar theory are summarily rejected each day.

    There was this one time years ago where Louis CK was on a radio program and Donald Rumsfeld called in. Louis asked the same thing but was met with a different response: ignored. Maybe one day real life will actually be accountable to the internet, not just crackpot theories/disinfo strawmen.

    you should see the questions on a homeland visa application
    things like
    are you a terrorist
    are you coming to work as a prostitute
    have you ever been deported

    stupid questions aren’t just for gov lizards

      Sounds like something a cult leader would tell his followers, so they don’t question his stupid answers.

    A Likely story. This is all a deflection away from the bill to legally let Hobbits marry.
