Fush and Chups - a New Zealander joke for Aussies
A NZ'er moves to Australia and is embarassed by his nationality. He is
particularly aware of his unmistakable accent. One day he walks into a
shop and asks for "five dollars worth of FUSH and CHUPS".
The shopkeeper immediately replies "You're from New Zealand aren't you?"
and the NZ'er runs out in embarassment. He goes home, determined to rid
himself of his accent.
He practices: "FISH and CHIPS, not FUSH and CHUPS," over and over again.

"OH NO" he cries. "This accent always betrays my nationality. I just
cannot hide it."
"It's got nothing to do with accents, mate," replies the shopkeeper.
"This is a hardware store".
