    Default God damn it my country embarrases me. Boo New Zealund.

    Aussie website joins in Kiwi bashing started by ex-pat bloggers - National - NZ Herald News

    the blogger said comments on the site were getting "a wee bit aggressive" and the site's comment tool was being turned off "for now".
    We are so pathetic.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Kiwis are usually pretty cool as long as they aren't taking themselves too seriously. Because really...

    That's our problem; we abhor any other country's patriotism, but as soon as a bit of mud is slung our way we feel like we've just let Sir Edmund Hillary get raped by Hitler. We're a bunch of children.

    I can handle a gentle ribbing from Aussies but when they come to NZ and bitch about it not being Australia, I'm not so tolerant.

    That said, it all seems like a bit of a storm in a teacup. We're so deprived of news here all we can do is stir sh*t up

    The best kiwis are travelling kiwis. There are some nations who just shouldn't be allowed to settle together. The UN should disperse them every 2 years or so.

    Aussies are pretty much the opposite. Whenever we travel people tell us how much they love our country (creating the illusion of celebrity) and we feel the need to live up to some beer-drinking larrikinish 70s incarnation of Australiana. So we act like total dickheads. Or maybe I'm just thinking of me and my year as an exchange student.

    In short, I don't tend to have many problems with kiwis as long as the conversation never turns to the rugby.

    I just don't see why we barely raise an eyebrow to his shite. Who cares?

    (Though it's good to see another... I don't like to use the term, but... small brown flightless insignificant bird on these forums.)

    There are a few kiwis here. Me included.

    A few Radio Pacific listeners getting all worked up no doubt. The whining bloggers can piss off back where they came from if they don't like it...if they're joking it's OK. Fish and Chups is a pretty funny piss take though... you gotta laugh.

    These made me laugh...

    I stubbed my cigarette out on a curtain.
    And said, "Sorry about the Malborough Ash...
    Burton"

    "Wait a Whakatane."

    It's so stupid it's funny.

    ...and such needy children at that, "please tell us you love us", on TV the first question they always ask people is "so what do you think of New Zealand?", so insecure and the reaction to that website proves it.

    You should see the firestorm that happens when Northerners (Yankees) start slamming the South. You wanna talk about the Civil War erupting all over again...
