got this in a mail, pretty bang on!
I come from a place called NEW ZEALAND, where people pull over for an ambulance or a cattle crossing. We dont have "fire flies" we have GLOW WORMS. "yeah" is never said with a high pitched voice.. BRO is definitely a word. Shoes aren't necessary if we go outside. We get dirty and aint scared of it. Sheep is ROASTED!! "shopping carts" are TROLLEYS, and "washing cloths" are FLANNELS, "thong" is a g-string... they are called JANDALS, An "esky" is a CHILLY BIN, "swimmers"? We wear TOGS, oh, & if you disrespect MY FAMILY, you're gonna get hit with whatevers close by!!, we are proud of who we are !!!! RE-POST THIS IF YOUR PROUD TO BE FROM NEW ZEALAND.
It's you're not your in "YOUR PROUD TO BE" - unless kiwis are proud of illiteracy too?
Why would anyone be proud of the things mentioned above? There are probably a few reasons to be proud of being a Kiwi, though I can't think of any offhand. But calling a thong a g-string is a source of national pride????
Of course it's a source of national pride, because otherwise what do they got? All Blacks and the land of Hobbits?
surely it should have been Sheep are SPIT-ROASTED
true, but I didnt write it.
Nice thread mate, was good to see you the other day!
I think many would be very surprised that we don't just have the All Blacks and Sir Peter Jackson, so many more contributors from this tiny Country, exist in leading industries all over the world......that being said , I don't give a toss, as long as we can keep out unwanted guests.
Furthermore, the less people that know about us the better, sadly though , many blue chip corporations are heading down our way to drill for oil etc........if the Maori do what they have always done so well, protect the landscape and the environment, it will remain unblemished....here's hoping!
Kia Kaha Aotearoa!!!!! :-)
Stand strong New Zealand!
Ps: We have some of the most literate people on Earth, due to our exceptional education system.
We were the first Nation to conquer the worlds highest mountains, first, and have split the atom.
In addition to this, we excel in sports...many of them, Australasia being hailed as the sporting capital of the world, so all round, I think we have our bases covered!
Shhhh, don't tell anyone though, Damo, don't get the word out mate, ha ha ha!
