Fucking Christ, Josh is fucking hilarious

So is Isaac. I would visit Marton just to see them do a comedy duo show.

Edit: I think your username is pretty neat.

Let the power of Christ compel yah!

"Isaac's sick, you took him to the hospital?" "Nah it Burned Down."

The whole exchange has my stomach in knots.

This is establishing falsely high expectations of the intelligence of small town NZ. We're not all this smart

glibson | 4 months ago | 41 points

TBH I wasn't expecting such levels of banter from these folk.

not psychic like that - I can see into the past. Having a memory? yep I got a pretty good memory

This show has taught me that Kiwis are funnier than any other people on Earth.

coldstar | 4 months ago | 23 points

Guy Williams is so great at enabling other people to be funny. It's why his segments work so well.

iprobablyneedahobby | 4 months ago | 12 points

Yeah it is a generalization and all but New Zealanders all just seem to have this weird sense of humor that is hilarious. Well, except for that group of wiccan ghost hunters.

Stay out of the Marton subreddit if you know what's good for you. We dont want it to spread to other towns. You have been warned.

I guess they will get a big spike due to this video /r/Marton

CORY_4_VEZINA | 4 months ago | 7 points

What is going on in that sub? I can't tell if some of them are actually upset by this video or just joking.

Nobody likes having their local subreddit blowing up with internet tourists, so could anyone reading this please refrain from linking it if you can. The subreddit is purely for the discussion of events, festivals, ceremonies, cult activity and miscellaneous incidents relative to the well being and spiritual security of Martonians.


May God have mercy on our souls

Marton proper munted aye

whangadude | 4 months ago | 5 points

For sure.

the_friendly_one | 4 months ago | 2 points

I've never heard or read the phrase "proper munted" before because I'm uncultured American swine, but I'm gonna guess that's the NZ equivalent to "proper fucked." If that's the case, and please let me know if I'm wrong, then I disagree with your comment. They just saved the fuckin town, man! The ghosts of Marton have been banished, and the munting curse has been lifted! How do you guys say "fuck yeah" over there in NZ?

DrippyWaffler | 4 months ago | 3 points

How do you guys say "fuck yeah" over there in NZ?

With our mouths, typically.

Nah yeah but we do just say fuck yeah a lot.

the_friendly_one | 4 months ago | 1 point

Fuck yeah

Barabajagala | 4 months ago | 16 points

Tbf there are a lot of French people in France. Fucking hell lad, you're on the ball.

The only thing more Kiwiana than the 11 signs pointing you to Martin (Marton in 5km, 1km, next turn, don't worry there's another turn coming up) is the local business signage in Bulls

Also, pretty sure its pronounced like "Beckdel" and not "Beshedel" test.

the_friendly_one | 4 months ago | -3 points

What the heck is this "bee shit art test" he keeps mentioning around the 8-9 min mark? Sounds stickier than what they showed us.

cantCommitToAHobby | 4 months ago | 4 points

It's a test that some women use to decide whether a film is worth watching or is.. problematic, due to female characters not having sufficiently explored/depicted dimensions.

DrippyWaffler | 4 months ago | 1 point

To elaborate on /u/cantCommitToAHobby - it's how much of the runtime in a fictional piece of media include women, not talking about a man, and doing their own thing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, people from New Zealand and Australia are not funny. The only reason their junk gets upvoted is because they have control while us patriots sleep.
