an ongoing thread of my favorite OIA requests which absolutely no one asked for

I often reference my "top five" but these are in no real order, and I've withheld a couple as they either relate to my workplace, or were mentioned to me by a coworker about their former workplace
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, 2018: "Does Jacinda Ardern ever end a cabinet meeting with 'Meeting arderned'?"
New Zealand Customs Service, 2016: "I write to request a list of the names of operational Customs dogs. Many of the dogs are very cute and I would like to know their names!"
Wellington City Council,, 2020: "I request a breakdown of the costs involved in awarding Mittens [the cat] the key to the city."
Ministry of Social Development, 2016: "I would like to request a full playlist of songs which are played as hold music for Studylink."

on Spotify:
Office of the Prime Minister, 2014, same requester as next Tweet: "Could you please provide any evidence to disprove the theory that Mr John Key is in fact a David Icke style shapeshifting reptilian alien ushering humanity towards enslavement."
