Tell me about the rabbits...

Anybody else have to reread that acticle...and did you then follow it?

Peni...that name would have been enough reason for me.
 
2002-07-16 10:16:18 AM
A European swallow or an African swallow?
 
2002-07-16 10:17:07 AM
Bird probably ate too many quarters.
 
2002-07-16 10:17:47 AM
Moral of the story? Don't laugh at dead sparrows.
 
2002-07-16 10:18:48 AM
He told the court that Peni pictured himself as the dead sparrow and thought Mr Hetherington's family wanted to kill him.


I hate it when that happens.

 
2002-07-16 10:21:28 AM
found naked and bleeding with a towel around his neck in the tavern toilets.

I hate when that happens...
 
2002-07-16 10:21:30 AM
"Work colleague Edgar Tumakeri told the court that when he approached him Peni was not himself and said only, "Ray's whanau were going to kill him"."

WTF?
 
2002-07-16 10:21:37 AM
I find this story hard to sparrow.. oh wait.
 
2002-07-16 10:22:48 AM
Bootdog I agree WTF? Can someone explain whanau?
 
2002-07-16 10:23:49 AM

He told the court that Peni pictured himself as the dead sparrow and thought Mr Hetherington's family wanted to kill him.

He has pleaded not guilty on the grounds of insanity.


Yeah, no shiat.
 
2002-07-16 10:24:11 AM
Buddy, can you sparrow a dime?



This is what it sounds like, when doves cry.
 
2002-07-16 10:24:11 AM
Why sick? More like funny!
 
2002-07-16 10:24:30 AM
"Work colleague Edgar Tumakeri told the court that when he approached him Peni was not himself and said only, "Ray's whanau were going to kill him"."

WTF?

LOL WTF indeed, I thought it was the shrooms i'm coming off.
 
2002-07-16 10:25:02 AM
I think there have was something else going on to cause an ulterior motive. Like his friend's incessant chanting and mockery of his last name.

"PENI! PENI! PENI!!"
 
2002-07-16 10:25:20 AM
....


Wha?
 
2002-07-16 10:26:29 AM
You all saw it! He laughed when my marshmallow caught fire!
 
2002-07-16 10:26:44 AM
Oh, and next time I promise to write a sentence that makes sense.
 
2002-07-16 10:27:51 AM
(PlastiqueJeebus what movie is that from?)
 
2002-07-16 10:27:57 AM
 
2002-07-16 10:29:15 AM
whanau = family
 
2002-07-16 10:30:21 AM
Ah, I thought it meant "nads" and that disturbed me.
 
2002-07-16 10:30:35 AM
on the first page of a GIS for 'whanau' i found:



yeah, that is a bit scary.
 
2002-07-16 10:30:37 AM
"PENI! PENI! PENI!!"
 
2002-07-16 10:31:43 AM
From investigating I have discovered that 'Whanau' means 'family' in Maori.

Obvious.
 
2002-07-16 10:32:20 AM
whanau=large breathmint that consumes children
 
2002-07-16 10:32:25 AM
I knew someone would beat me to it...
 
2002-07-16 10:33:18 AM
That's okay. Even people of the English language often interject terms of other languages into our everyday speech.

eg: I think I will have a burrito for lunch!
 
2002-07-16 10:34:20 AM
Peni, Douch, Mangere. Sounds like fake names to me.
 
2002-07-16 10:35:08 AM
It's from a Far Side comic. Though it would probably fit perfectly into "Blazing Saddles".
 
2002-07-16 10:35:38 AM
"Mr Douch said that the next day Peni was meant to drive Mr Hetherington back to Auckland but instead killed him with a spade. "

An honest mistake.
 
2002-07-16 10:36:29 AM
He could have just flipped him the bird.
 
2002-07-16 10:36:46 AM
crazyeddie- i think repoman is quoting a gary larson farside cartoon with four cowboys sitting around a campfire.
 
2002-07-16 10:37:54 AM
Well here's a little bit about whanau.

Think it applies?
 
2002-07-16 10:38:32 AM
oops... the link is URL=http://www.radionz.co.nz/Whanau/whanau.htm

I can hear Sammy Davis Jr. singing the Baretta theme song:

"Keep your eye on the sparrow!! and that spade coming towards your head."
 
2002-07-16 10:39:21 AM
In the immortal words of the I Didn't Do It Kid, well... I forget now.
 
2002-07-16 10:40:47 AM
He was probably just evening the score with sparrows, for the lack of fantails which you don't see much anymore due to introduced species taking their food and habitat.
 
2002-07-16 10:41:17 AM
....a dead bird in the bush is worth a spade in the neck...
 
2002-07-16 10:44:57 AM
"Send wire... main office... tell them I said 'OW!' Got it."
 
2002-07-16 10:45:11 AM
was he found naked and bleeding prior to the murder? wtf?

like he was found naked and bleeding, went home, showered, perhaps made a sandwich, then killed somebody?
 
2002-07-16 10:53:54 AM
Wow - last time I imagined myself as a dead sparrow and someone laughed, I got a bit freaked out. Later, when I realized that his whanua was trying to kill me, I did not kill him with a spade. I repeat, I did not kill him with a spade. I simply had the some Raccoons go over and serve him with a restraining order. Then Bob Dole, an elk named rupert, and PT Cruiser TPed there lean-to.

I'm cuckoo for coocoo puffs, cuckoo for coocoo pufs.
 
2002-07-16 10:58:55 AM
lol sounds like somthing i would do
 
2002-07-16 10:59:07 AM
A blonde and her father are walking down a street when the father says, "Look, a dead bird."

And the blonde looks up and says, "Where?"
 
2002-07-16 10:59:10 AM
Tell about the rabbits, George!
 
2002-07-16 11:02:46 AM
Respect the sparrow.
Good advice for us all.


Especially around the insane.

In the immortal words of the I Didn't Do It Kid...

Woozle Wuzzle?
