Being a New Zealander is about driving in a European car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, whilst travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

And the most NZ thing of all? Suspicion of all things foreign!


Only in NZ
can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in NZ
do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their panadol, lemsip etc while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in NZ
do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.

Only in
NZ do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.

Only in NZ
do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in NZ
do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
NOT TO MENTION...


1
New Zealander dies each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.

42 New Zealanders
were injured in 1999 by not removing all pins from new shirts.

22 New Zealanders
are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.

5
New Zealanders have died since 1994 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.

New Zealand Hospitals
reported 2 broken or dislocated arms last year after Xmas cracker-pulling accidents.

Around50 New Zealanders are burnt each year ironing their clothes while still wearing them

9 New Zealanders
had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new tops with a lit cigarette in their mouth.

A massive
143 New Zealanders were admitted to A&E in the last two years after trying to open bottles of beer with their teeth

And finally...


In 2003---
14 New Zealanders were admitted to hospital with fractured skulls incurred whilst throwing up into the toilet.

numbers are slightly different from the US one, but I'd suspect it's just a NZ switch for US, theres similiar for UK, Aussie, canuks, etc...
