Happy Friday morning!
(Having been here for so long and all), I have decided that, as a whole, the nation of New Zealand is a lot less censored and more outgoing in language and behavior (or behaviour, if you please). See the following examples as proof. (This e-mail not intended for the faint of heart):
Last night, DIane and I watched a re-run of a news show that covered the recent Erotica Expo (which I am bummed I wasn't here in time for).

Because why not, right??

Lastly, to close my case, is my favorite example. I saw the following billboard on the side of a large building:
If you use ferret.co.nz, New Zealand's fastest
online shopping, you'll have more time to do
the things you love.
Like your wife.
I laughed all the way home. And then more when I got home. I am actually still laughing now.
George W. Bush would have a fit...
