Local humour ...
...A good laugh for any New Zealander, interesting to see how others see and interpret it..
A Maori bloke called Rangi was driving through Rotorua, when off in the distance he saw a booze bus (police).
Rangi thinks this is great and heads straight for it. He pulls up and Rangi winds his window down and says,"Two cans of Lion Red (beer) thanks mate!!"
The copper looks at Rangi and says "You must be drunk! Get out of your old truck and blow into this bag for me."
Rangi got out of the truck and said "Sorry boss, I can't blow in that. I got a letter from the doc saying I'm asthmatic and I'll pass out if I blow in that."
The cop looks at him and with a bemused look says "OK. In these cases we require you to give a blood sample."
"Nah nah sorry boss. Can't be doing that either. I got a letter from the Red Cross saying I'm a haemophiliac and I could bleed to death. Sorry Boss, can't do that" said Rangi.
By now the copper is getting fairly pissed off and finally demands a urine sample for testing.
Rangi looks at him and says "Sorry boss, can't do that either."
The copper says "Surely you can't have a letter for that!
"Bloody oath mate" says Rangi. "It's from the government. Called the Treaty of Waitangi. Says that you whites can't take the piss out of us Maori."
