View Full Version : Tiki In "Not A Kiwi" Shocker
09 November 2001, 11:04
The gaming world was in shock last night following the revelation that Tiki The Kiwi, who features in the hit game The New Zealand Story, is not a Kiwi at all.
The discovery was made when Tiki was compared with a photograph of a real Kiwi, the national bird of New Zealand.
It was obvious that Tiki's beak was too short and that his feathers were yellow instead of brownish grey. Further proof came when it was discovered that real Kiwis don't wear trainers or carry a bow and arrow. Neither do they ride in balloons and wear goggles underwater.
Dr. Codetapper, a Kiwi expert and long-time New Zealand resident, was asked to comment:
"Things in NZ Story are fucking chickens, I reckon."
The public shame for Tiki is similar to what happened to Zool, when it came to light that he was not an ant, but a Ninja of the Nth Dimension.

Bullshit. Cody is a liar, here's the original pic from the net:

You threw that poor Kiwi into a can of paint, you cruel bastard!

Me? :shocked I said I got this pic from the net. I don't think any animals were harmed while making photos of them.

Okay. I'll let you off this time.

There's still the proof that Kiwis don't use bows and arrows or wear sneakers. Actually the government is hiding something from you. It's great you were able to find a non-censoured picture of the kiwi as the government have gone to great lengths to at least color all pictures of that nature to prevent people panicking when they find out about the bird's real nature. I'm impressed you found that picture in an unedited version with it's color intact. But unfortunately you didn't find this picture which was taken moments before the untimely demise of the photografer. (Yes I know you have the other picture without a bow. But keep in mind that in the game the bow is indeed invisible until you fire it. The Kiwis have ways of hiding weaponry)

I came across this thread whilst deleting some attachments. I didn't realise it was still around!

I wasn't around the first time this was posted but it still made me laugh, cheers for digging it up!
I saw a kiwi once. It had a small laser gun and was running away from a cat in a flying saucer.

I’m glad to see that New Zeeland has some sensible laws including other species and not the racist:
“the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
And that liberal BS about a permit for carrying a hidden weapon.. only in America!

Kinda realised that on the first day I played it. Also some of the other baddies I have never seen on my journey around New Zealand

Looks like a canary to me. But don't mind me, I'm just being serious here.
