I'm an ausie and we have always taken the piss out of kiwis. Then I went on a holiday to NZ and I got my pay back. We are both as bad as each other! South Australians sound a bit like kiwis. One thing I hate is the fake ocher accent that americans give us. That accent is mainly really country outback people.

Melbourne has the least 'occa' accent of anywhere. That comes from anywhere north, either queensland or NT.
So the Kiwi's don't say six, they say 'sex'. Well, who wouldn't find that funny?

We all love to tease those Kiwi's. We love them too, many of my friends are Kiwi's. They must love us back cos they all move over here!!!

Actually, it's the Australians that say sex.

here's the mispronunciations

Australia i = e

New Zealand i = u

All large countries have their neighbouring countries that they like to tease. England and Wales, America and Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Funnily enough, these country's accents are similar but slightly different.

You can add Holland and Belgium to that list :)
