If you go by population alone, the sheep are already firmly in control.

I pity whoever may be foolish enough to challenge them.

Funny, but factually incorrect.

This appeared last night on ABC TV's reasonably interesting show The Gruen Transfer (a show about advertising on a station that otherwise doesn't air any), alongside an effort from another advertising agency, which can be seen as a glorious sequence of block encoding artifacts here.

Wow. Following plant's link led me to look up what Gruen transfer really means. Creepy. I need to find out more about that, after I finish my StarbucksĀ® coffee.

I dunno, NZ's military looks a little mental. Not sure I'd want to mess with them!

C'mon, you square. All the cool countries invade using falsified information.

They have a standing army of stoppers* ready, armed and waiting.

* Traffic police that stop traffic when kangaroos are crossing the street.
NO, REALLY!

Er...kangaroos=Australia. New Zealand=sheep and/or kiwis (the birds, not the fruit). Try to keep your cliches straight.

Unless you're suggesting that the stoppers are the ones who will be leading the invasion? "We are here to liberate you; please stay in your homes or we will be forced to raise our stop signs!"

By the way--hilarious video ardgedee.

It seems only fair. We've been taking over Australia by stealth for some time now... half the invasion force would be homesick New Zealanders.

The whois is a creative agency in Australia 303.

Tourism New Zealand has in the past shown a willingness to agressively protect the image of the 100% Pure New Zealand brand.

This would suggest the site is a viral by Tourism New Zealand designed to attract tourists here, so... come on, it's lovely here; and if you do come Stephen and I will buy you a drink...

Also I am wrong.

yes, those poor kiwis are severely pussy-whipped.

the NZ SAS is also not to be taken lightly.

It's rumoured the government is in possession of a metal gear.

No, as mentioned above, it's a competition entry from the Gruen Transfer.

a pitch from The Gruen Transfer to make celibacy sexy.
