Interestingly enough we think the same of the Australian accent and my experience is that Americans think we both have sex after five.

Is that after 5 years in the Priesthood or after 5 years on Earth?

But we don't have an accent. It's only some of you weird talkin' Kiwis.

Funnily enough I had some Kiwi rellies stay with us last year and they spoke regular Australian just like us. Is the "Kiwi" accent a regional thing?

Oddly enough we do have regional dialects which I think is strange for such a small population I am guessing it due to the demographics of our colonisation (The north being a reasonable mix and the south being strongly Scottish).

Overall I am told our accent is most similar to a Queensland one in Australian terms.

Dear MontyB and Senojekips, eventhough it is nice to read that there is such a thing as regional dialects in your corner of the world, I have a question for you. What is it exactly that you people do? And what's the matter with the sex and 5 minutes? I heard through the grapevine that that is how long you last..... is that true?

New Zealand 2007 Birth Rate = 13.61 per 1,000 population.

Australian 2007 Birth Rate = 12.02 per 1,000

Netherlands 2007 Birth Rate = 10.7 per 1,000

Don't know who's having more fun, but...........

Kiwi's have only one vowel sound for all the vowels... sorta like the many moods of Matt Damon. LOL

Well Ted, I can last that long if there's nothing important to do.

Great post.

I was sifting through right wing and pro-American wear and I saw a baby T-shirt that says, "Go Diego, GO!" it shows a picture of Diego (Mexican cartoon character, cousin to Dora the Explorer) running for the American border. I was laughing my ass off.
