    ah...antipodeans....strange but somehow wonderful.

    Whats an Antipodean?

    i rest my case

    Just googled it. Ive never heard of it before. Why dont northerners just call us Aussies or Kiwis lol

    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
    One runs the very real risk of disembowelment if one infers that a Kiwi is a dirty, rotten ocker.

    Kiwi is the singular pronoun for flightless bird and a single New Zealander. It is also the plural for the flightless bird....but Kiwis is the plural for a group of New Zealanders.

    @UrQuan you're a bloody legend mate xD Not a big fan of Flight of the Concords myself but they do some funny stuff and poking at the relationship between Aussies and Kiwis is brilliant
    I love the line "she may have been subtly mocking your accent"

    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
    A thongs is a very different item of clothing in NZ...
