    My sisters doing it, like we do in NZ … with passion and dedication to our bros.

    I can’t vote for either one. Will I be attract a fine?

    What’s the story with the air guitar?

    The wiri (quivering of the hands) is an integral part of Maori movement, seen in the haka. The “air guitar” expresses movements that are deceptive, which is essential in the arts of combat.

    Didn’t Kevin bloody Wilson tell them you’re supposed to put the potatoe in the front of your bathers.

  6. Slapping thongs on butts was sort of funny 20 years ago, but in those days we had a sporting chance of beating the ABs. But we can still beat the Scots on a good day, we have plenty of big dicks ourselves.

    When the Kiwis play sport in Europe, do E.E.C. teams, in response to the Kiwi ‘Haka’, perform the ‘E.E.C. Junckers’, and stagger drunkenly about in a bottle-fatigued fashion, before collapsing in an undignified heap on the ground and being carted off the scene?

    It might save them all the theatrical ‘diving’, later in the game.

    Doc Neeson has already given Australia our haka.

    If we must reprise colonial encounters before a rugby match, perhaps ours could go something like this.

    I vote for the Rugby League synchronized poetry reading as performed earlier this year.

    It would have killed any opposition with its fierce use of verse.

    Australia’s haka, back when yarragrad was still Melbourne.

    Haka – response to cognitive dissonance when unable to debate the message – a theatrical display of messenger pre-shooting. Common among tribal cultures.
