Free Kiwi Sex

One of the things I enjoy most about both of the local free weekly papers (The Whangarei Leader and the Report) is that pretty much every issue carries a story about kiwi. I love it. I would much rather read about what's going on in the kiwi world than most of the human world.

But the best kiwi story I've read was in the local free glossy magazine, Scene. The story subtitled "Kiwi wife-swapping and burrow hopping on Matakohe-Limestone Island" by Tristan Tuckey revealed the soap operatic romantic lives of four kiwi with wonderfully tawdry and sordid anthropomorphism. I laughed out loud. More than once.
