snipshot_e4p0hs8xrd02.jpgA small amusing story of an insult turned into sweet revenge for a small town in New Zealand called Palmerston North.

Apparently, after performing in the town, John Cleese quipped, “If you wish to kill yourself but lack the courage to, I think a visit to Palmerston North will do the trick.”

Obviously, the residents became upset at the comment. From the article,

“Now the city has exacted revenge by naming a garbage tip after their high-profile critic last weekend. The heap of litter has been dubbed Mount Cleese and waste manager Chris Parker has no intention of removing the label.

He says, ‘Somebody had the sign made up as a joke. It has popped up overnight and nobody has said to pull it down. People just smile and leave it there.'”

Beautiful, sweet revenge. Cleese could probably have cared less, but the fact that the media finds it so amusing and is publishing the story means Palmerston North gets the last laugh.

Never mess with a Kiwi.
