Why New Zealand might be annoying
Its people suffer from earthquakes and rare volcanic activity.
Its national bird, the kiwi, is nearly blind, can't fly and lives in a hole in the ground (LOSER!)
It gave us 'Xena: Warrior Princess.'
Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu is located in New Zealand and is the longest place name in the world. It means: 'the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed, and swallowed mountains, known as land eater, played his flute to his loved one.'
The ratio is twenty sheep for every person.
