I'm Beached As...

So, some Aussies made this cartoon making fun of how Kiwis talk, and it's pretty darn funny. Of course, it is a parody, so keep that in mind. In fact, think of it as if a Texan made a cartoon making fun of how Californians talk- it would be full of "Dude!" and "Righteous" and whatever other stereotypical things that Californians would say.

Anyway, here's the cartoon. Be forewarned- there is a bit of swearing.



Also, Kiwis often say things are "sweet as" meaning "sweet as honey" or "sweet as sugar." From that, it has turned into "hungry as," "tired as," "loud as," - you get the idea.

All the kiwi elders I knew called each other "cuzzy bro." At least the Maori ones. But then, they ususally could find an ancestor in common. I love the Kiwi accent.
