Beware the Maori Wheelie Bin Duffer

By johnboy - 7 October 2005 12

ACT Policing are warning business to be on the lookout for a 175cm Islander with a maori accent who’s been walking into offices and making off with their wheelie bins.

So if someone’s trying to sell you some choice bins be sure to ask for a pair of jandals with thim.

What’s Your opinion?

My dad has a funny mainland accent story, regarding the NZ term for ‘little’, ‘wee’

He was over in WA, hot as hell cause the aircon had broken in his car, driving about 1000km north of Perth when he stopped at a shop by the side of the road, and asked for a small icecream. ‘Can I have a wee icecream’ he says.

Apparently he got a big icecream once the shopowner had stopped laughing

I was living here for three years before I began to realise how truly funny the NZ accent really is. Mind you, coming from the ‘Mainland’ I have a much nicer accent than those ‘Pig Islanders’. 🙂

You only sound a little biut like a kiwi my friend.

Or maybe I’m just used to the accent, or lack thereof….

I actually own a CD of his recordings…

Maelinar, do you know of the late/great Billy T. James? He did several great impressions of what a Maori accent sounds like. 😉

We’ll hit the turps one night and I’ll take you through it. Alternately go and hire ‘Once were Warriors’.

By the way what is a maori accent ?

I’m told I have a Kiwi accent, I want to know what the difference is…

Did you hear about the maori who walked into the pub wearing one thong?

The barman said to him ‘Mate, did….’ , ah ferget it, you’ve heard it before.
