Am I missing some Kiwi ism Does More Pork mean something else? I was just wondering why Spark (or whatever it is they call themselves this week!) has used this phrase to advertise there security "offering" ...... More Pork?

Oh, I thought it was because when the alarm goes off the police will come around so you'll have morepork on your property.

Whoopsie.

Ok that makes sense Just googled it and yes it s an owl only found in NZ and Tasmania. Nothing to do with sausages at all then? Right so they are targeting their marketing at Kiwis and those form Tasmania only! Don't want any of those pesky imports buying from them! Tell me is the Morepark a relative of a Ferrit ? Oh dear they did it again they didn't buy the .com and while we are having fun at their expense spark.com is a dating site! who on earth does their marketing?
