A gay sex-related quote has made it into the shortlist for Massey University's annual quote of the year competition. Denise Roche MP "Sex just can't be that good,"  joked Green MP Denise Roche when asked about Brian Tamaki's recent statements linking homosexuality and earthquakes. Other finalist quotes include "In the beginning I really admired Colin. It was only as time went on that I realised he was a douche bag," said by Rachel MacGregor testifying at anti-gay politician Colin Craig's defamation trial. "A powerful quote uses the minimum number of words for maximum meaning, so the words represent a whole story," competition organiser Dr Heather Kavan said. "We also looked for originality, wit, impact, emotional strength, memorability and vividness of the language." You can vote for your favourite quote here, the voting is open for a week.
