Just a short post to relate a couple of aspects of Kiwi humour…which I think is generally akin to that of the UK. They have a generally laid back attitude to life which comes across in humour. An example would be that their national Badminton team used to be known as the “Black Cocks”…not any more might I add (although there was sponsorship interest from condom companies)…but very amusing. The NZ basketball team is called the “Tall Blacks”.
I saw this advertisement for Lipton tea which I thought provides a good example of the way they use humour to say what everyone is thinking…while also in some ways mocking themselves…and then we have some eggs (strange choice!) which merited a photo in a grocery store!!
