    You Know You're From New Zealand When...
    You know what to do in an Earthquake: get into the nearest doorway before any other bugger and say, "Nah, i don't reckon it's the big one this time. We'll be right"

    You can hum the theme song to Coronation street.

    You know what apples really taste like (and that there are more than four different kinds)

    You know rugby league is not, and never will be, an international sport.

    You're not sure about cricket, either. Or hockey. Or netball. Or swimming. Or the women's 400m. Or any other sport in which Australia are world champions. Yes, you're even having doubts about real rugby.

    You know what happened to the lead singer of Push Push

    You're seen split Enz, or former members thereof, performing live at least once

    You reckon anyone who carries on about how great they are is an up-themselves ******. Or an Australian.

    You wouldn't dream of wearing thongs on your feet. Thats what jandals are for.

    The name "Chappell" still makes you queasy

    You know someone who worked on The Lore of the Rings or Xena

    You wish Fitzy, Zinzan and Josh were still playing for the ABs.

    The dairy sells more than just stuff from cows

    You rolled Snifters, rather then Jaffas, down the aisle at the movies

    You know something's horribly wrong if you've been driving for more then 2 hours without the scenery changing.

    The words "NZ cricket victory" just don't sound right, somehow.

    You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from New Zealand.

    --------------------------------

    Is it just me, or is 90% of this nothing to do with being from NZ? What are Snifters? Who is Push Push and Chappell? Maybe that underarm bowler guy?

    > What are Snifters? Who is Push Push and Chappell?

    Oh Kitt! Snifters are minty, light green egg shaped lollies similar to jaffas. They have chocolate in them, but have a chewy core. They come in the same sort of box as jaffas.

    The lead singer of 80s hair-metal band Push Push, Mike Roberts, (who had a #1 hit with the classic Trippin') has become a radio DJ on bFM and has had several TV shows over the last 5 or 6 years. He's known as Mikey Havoc.

    And yes. The Chappell brothers were teh captain and bowler during the Underarm Incident.

    But all in all that's a pretty lame chain letter. Surely Country Calendar or A Dog's Show would have been a better substitute for Coro St?

    You know someone's from NZ when you're in London wearing a Crusaders top and a voice shouts from across the street: "GO CRUSADERS!!!11!!1"

    You can always spot a Cantabrian abroad. Weating either a Canty rugby jersey or an Airtex shirt. Collar scrunched up at the back. Moleskins. Last Footwear company boots. Probably a Macpack too.

    You can always tell when an Australian is in the office when she has the loudest/most frequent voice heard and even people here can tell the difference between my accent and hers. :p
