"kiwi's" is technically wrong as "kiwi" is a Maori word and there is no 's' in the Maori alphabet.
It's like saying 'sheeps' instead of 'sheep'.
And if you say "I used to eat kiwi's..." you are implying that you are eating the bird, not the fruit because a 'kiwi' is a bird. A 'kiwi fruit', is the fruit.


Out of interest, do you guys get the green ones or the yellow ones?
The green ones are far superior IMO, but I'm not a huge kiwi fruit fan anyway, I'd eat it if presented to me but I wouldn't buy them.

I've only ever seen the green ones. Granted I'm not really a fan of them (I don't care for the texture with the seeds)

Do I like like a god damned Maori? I'm a god-fearing, patriotic, family loving American goddamnit! Besides, who said I meant the fruit? Laugh out load Also, I've never seen a yellow one in real life.

Opps, sorry, I probably just didn't read your post. Tongue
Nothing personal.

Actually, Kiwi fruit is cheap at the moment, $1.99nz (about $1.30 us) a KG.
Cheaper then green apples which are a ridiculous $3.49nz

I *think* I am talking about a different fruit. I'm going to have to back-log later to see, but I thought you mentioned a fruit that is not allowed to be exported? Ring any bells? I can have kiwi here. That's why I thought you could send it to me, cuz I can't get it otherwise.

You wouldn't be eating a kiwi bird, they're too adorable and cuddly. Sleepy
As for do you look like a Maori that depends, do you have a stolen TV in your arms?

Interesting.
Says something about the laziness and slowness of NZ business... Dodgy

Fun fact, the kiwi fruit company (can't remember (spell) their name), is the largest monopoly in the world. Which says something about business regulation in the 80's and 90's... Dodgy

I've made a thread like this....

On a scale of one to ten (ten being the best, one being the worst), how attractive is Robert Downey Jr.
