Land of Milk and... What?

If you’re at all interested in investing-type news, Forbes offers a great free news alert service. The alerts can be pretty cryptic, though. Especially if you’re not keeping totally tight with the market. I got one last night that’s a pretty good for instance:

New Zealand: Land Of Milk And Money

Investors looking for a solid currency and fat yields should check out New Zealand.

Isn’t that fun? “Land of Milk and Money.” What does that even mean beyond telling us someone on late-night at Forbes likes cute?

The funny thing is -- and why I posted something right this second -- is because, the only thing I thought of when I saw this hed and dek was Flight of the Conchords. Seriously, if you haven’t seen this two man band -- “New Zealand’s fourth most popular digi-folk paradists” -- and their weird new HBO series -- also called Flight of the Conchords -- run, don’t walk. It’s very funny in a pleasingly mindless sorta way. I can’t even do it justice: a pair of of New Zealand digi-folk paradists try to make it in the big Apple... while occasionally breaking into song... that sometimes incorporates production numbers. See what I’m saying? Describe it and you just want to say, “Whot?”

Thirty minutes well spent.
