One runs the very real risk of disembowelment if one infers that a Kiwi is a dirty, rotten ocker.
one tries to be polite and can never be certain that said person is either an aussie or, indeed, a kiwi.
though i was under the misapprehension that a kiwi is a flightless bird.
just imagine its stephen fry saying it
A thongs is a very different item of clothing in NZ...
Ah yes. The Aussie mocking of the Kiwi accent and how they say stuff like "six", "fish", and "chips". I worked with a guy from New Zealand and we would get into all sorts of verbal battles about what stuff is called such as thongs/jandels and eskys/chillybins
