I have heard some gems, so I thought it was time to start writing these down. Though I don’t remember half of what I hear, this is what I’ve got so far…
On learning we are from New Zealand (everytime): ‘That’s so far!’
On learning we are from New Zealand (sometimes): ‘I’ve always wanted to go to Australia.’
On why you shouldn’t put chicken on a pizza: ‘Because chicken is a main and pizza is a main, so it would be like a main squared.’
On food: ‘Everyone comes to Italy and loves the food, but when Italians go overseas they don’t like the food’ I think this is the real reason every country has pizza restaurants.
On the government: ‘I don’t know why we have this government … We have the government we deserve.’
As and when necessary: ‘Mamma mia!’ .. Seriously!
