I notice that the discussion has been somewhat vitriolic of late.
Recently I was accused in an email of hating South Africans and having the sick dream
that New Zealanders were superior.
What has happened to the sense of humour in this NG?
For the record my emailed reply was:
>met, who number in their 20's.
>One of the things we share is a sense of humour and the ability to be able to:
>(a) handle people taking the***out of us, and
>(b) take the***out of ourselves.
>I reminded of a favourite story of the late great humanitarian, Dr Fred Hollows:
>There are three things a Kiwi will tell you when you first meet him:
>1. My grandfather was an All Black trialist you know,
>2. My grandmother was a Maori princess you know, and
>3. I was just trying to help that sheep through the gate you know.
>Is that a superior sick dream or what?
>Where's your sense of humour?
>Did it go along with apartheid mate?
I am a back (centre - and therefore it goes without saying - much better
with ***s) ;-)
What more is there to say.
PS. Do not infer that Koos made the accusation. He did not.
The fatties in the front row know we like them really. Honestly. Truly.
