New Zealand jokes are a charming reflection of the Kiwi spirit, weaving together humor and unique aspects of life in this beautiful island nation. These jokes often spotlight the friendly rivalry between Australia and New Zealand, cheeky references to the beloved All Blacks rugby team, or comical observations about local dialect quirks and rural life.
You might encounter a tongue-in-cheek jest about the numerous sheep found across the country or the passion New Zealanders harbor for their ‘flat white’ coffee. While often light-hearted and whimsical, these jokes also showcase the distinctive cultural identity of New Zealand and the endearing pride Kiwis have for their homeland. As always, when sharing such cultural humor, it’s important to do so with respect and understanding, celebrating the diversity that enriches our global tapestry.

The Fijian politely ignored the New Zealander, who, never the less started up a conversation. The New Zealander snapped his gum and said, “You Fijian folks eat the whole bread?”
The Fijian frowned, annoyed with being bothered during his breakfast, and replied, “Of course.”
The New Zealander blew a huge bubble. “We don’t. In New Zealand, we only eat what’s inside. The crusts we collect, recycle them, and transform them into croissants and sell them to Fiji.”
The New Zealander had a smirk on his face. The Fijian listened in silence.
The New Zealander persisted. “D’ya eat jam with the bread?”
Sighing the Fijian replied, “Of course.”
Cracking his gum between his teeth, the Kiwi said, “We don’t. In New Zealand, we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam, and sell them to Fiji.”
The Fijian then asked, “Do you have sex in New Zealand?” The New Zealander smiled and said, “Why of course we do.” The Fijian leaned closer to him and asked, “And what do you do with the condoms once you’ve used them?”
“We throw them away, of course.” says the New Zealander.

“We don’t. In Fiji, we recycle them, we put them in a container, melt them down into chewing gum, and sell them to New Zealand. Why do you think it’s called Wrigleys?”
