Clearly upset over the loss of the 3rd One-Dayer, Sydneysiders attack Middle Easterners in riots that have the Diversity Drones despairing: "Why caint we all jus' git along?" Must have missed Anthropology 101. Ethnocentricism: we hate 'em coz we're better than they are, and the feeling's mutual. End of lesson. Why do so many refuse to acknowledge this most fundamental cultural principle?
Lucky I'm not there! I look 'Middle-Eastern' with my mulatto heritage. I don't mind being despised, but please, hate me for the 'right' reasons! I'm always being mistaken for an Arab. You wouldn't believe the filthy looks I got immediately after 9/11. Even more than the usual filthy looks I get as a scruffy, unkempt Maori with bad attitude & sour look on face. Fortunately, my natural born egomania means little time's ever wasted mulling others' opinions.
could try harder...
Our school exam marking cock-up keeps mushrooming with now 11 (possibly 12?) NCEA standards to be remarked. Bill English continues his gallant battle to slay Labour's Frankenstein-like creation currently wreaking havoc with our nation's future education. Thanks also Stuff website for informing us [like media outlets used to in the good ol' days] on this issue of great public concern. NZHerald, unusually quiet on a matter which makes Helen's govt look bad. Can't figure out why...
Grannies with attitude
Heart rending story of Grey Power as elderly petanque players deal to burglar at clubrooms. Never Underestimate the power of our national sporting ethos:
A very brave man, Bob Vernal, took him in a flying tackle and brought him down on asphalt...It's OK, Mr Vernal; replay shows you were on side! Well done! Player of The Year!
saying he probably would have been red-carded for the elbow into the jaw tackle had it taken place on the rugby field
Police arrived to find intruder hog-tied by seniors. Yeehaw! Kick-@ss Kaumatua!
