Maori language

Recommended Posts

chris.

Just out of pure interest I am wondering if anyone here who does not come from New Zealand and has not been to New Zealand has heard of the Maori poeple and the Maori language.

Mike Tyson's facial tattoo is an original Maori design. He's not from New Zealand and I don't believe he has ever been there.

Strange that he would have a Maori design then.

Not so strange when you consider the fact that he also has a Mao Zedong tattoo on his bicep.

Not so strange when you consider the fact that he is also an idiot of voluminous proportions who probably doesn't know who mao zedong is or where new zealand is.

He read the works of Mao Zedong while serving time in prison for raping a beauty pageant contestant. I'm not as sure about his geographical savvy, but there are plenty of ordinary people in this world who believe New Zealand belongs to Australia.

Then he has to consult the physician of Mao too, he has some effective aphrodisiacs.

Chris: I know who the Maori are, don't know anything about their language though.

And about the Mao tattoo: not that much different (only more permanent) than all those kids walking around in a Che Guevara t-shirt. :-/
