    You said "Frolic Acid" rather than Folic Acid. I wondered whether or not it was deliberate.

    So what should the face have been? NZ European? I doubt it if the Pakehas would have complained. And in most cases, it's not the maoris who complain. Much of the time non maori experience righteous...
  8. Re: Pretty quiet on the forum. Time for a few jokes

    Now I’m going to saddle you with a bit of British humour:

    In the UK, some supermarkets have admitted that there is horse meat in their home cooked burgers.

    What’s the different between a cat and a comma?

    A cat has claws at the end of paws; A comma is a pause at the end of a clause.

    What's the difference? Does it matter?

    My knowledgeable daughter has told me that I need to do a restart on my PC occasionally to install the updates.

    I turn my PC off each night and turn it on again the next morning. Will that...

    Have you seen the Oceania ad?

    You will have seen the Oceania ad with two "pilots" sitting in what seems to be a flying simulator. But why is it jumping back and forth?

    Why is it that the Maori All Blacks are allowed with no one turning a hair, while if anyone considered the European All Blacks they would be labelled racist. Why? What's the difference?

    Re: Do you know what sort of birds they are?
