Kiwis. Not the bird from New Zealand. But the colloquial term for people who come from New Zealand.

Anyway. As they flock over to Australia in droves, they bring some of their phraseology with them. Choice. Sweet. Chee Bro. Bro.

They are renowned for replacing the "I" in words with something that sounds like a "U". So "six" becomes something close to "sux" but with a shortened "u" sound. Chip, becomes chup, with a short U.

Came across this funny video of a cartoon beached whale talking to a seagull. All in New Zealandish. Enjoy... (goes for one minute forty)
