Now the Yanks are making sheep jokes about us

August 21, 2008

Every now and then someone suggests New Zealand should be renamed. But Sheepbangabanga?

That’s the name on this advertisement which Whaleoil uncovered.

Someone should tell those Americans the growth in the human population and decrease in sheep numbers means we’ve gone from more than 20 sheep per person to fewer than 10; and in spite of all the jokes Kiwis and sheep never have been more than just good friends.

Update: I should have realised this – it’s not the Americans making sheep jokes, it’s the Aussies. The ad is for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
