My, my...didn't realise I'd touched quite a sensitive nerve there. Haha, wish I'd the time to log onto this forum earlier.

Kiwi, if you would take some time out from sucking him off, you'd actually read that your boyfriend Tiki did write this (see below):
tiki wrote:I'm Maori so I have a couple of 'Maori Tattoos' on me and I get a kick everytime I'm taking the lift and some ( usually elderly ) people especially women would pretend to wait for the next one and not share the ride with me...I'd laff my arse off in the lift!
So why is it acceptable for some people to make tongue-in-cheek comments about certain social situations but somehow not for others to make similar tongue-in-cheek comments about the over-representation of certain sections of the NZ population in unemployment, alcoholism and domestic violence? Hmm, perhaps you regret jumping the gun too quickly on this.

On the contrary, I do value outsiders observations of Australian society, especially if they're particularly poignant and humourous. I thought I conveyed the same in my post to Eric's when I cracked a joke about Brogden being a soft-c**k. But perhaps, again...this is a case of you not reading it thoroughly enough.

Afraid you're wrong there. Not that it makes me any more or less qualified to say what I said but I spent most of the Eighties working in NZ...back when Winston Peters was Piggy Muldoon's personal bum-boy, when Howick seemed like more a suburb of Auckland than Hong Kong and when the All Blacks actually peaked during World Cup years instead of right smack dab between them.
You sound very proud of the fact that you can quote some Maori words. Perhaps if I recited the lyrics to Pokarekare Ana or roll out a Marae welcome speech, you'd be suitably impressed with me? Hare mai, hare mai, hare mai...hare mai ke tene kora etc etc etc (excuse the spelling/grammer but it's been a while).
Just admit it k1w1: you got hurt, jumped on your high horse too quickly without actually reading what people had written and I've called you on it. It's ok, the first step towards recovery is to admit you have a problem.
As a peace offering let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the lovely little country of yours. I do this to put you in a better mood (knowing as I do, how much you crave recognition from your "big brothers" across The Ditch). Well done.
