*notes that zhandae (<--was tempted to spell that wrong for the hell of it) also didn't have much of a sense of humour when I mentioned the southland thing. (Which I happened to find rather amusing. Like the nz-aussie jokes. :P)
And on that line of thought - how is it racist when you'r mocking your own race? i.e. NZers? *shrugs*
It's hardly "all the Southlander things". I happen to like hot Southlanders. It just that I also like teh mockage. The mockage is not restricted to Southlanders. It also applies to people from Gore, Oamaru, Dargaville and Remuera.
