NZ features in song by overseas person!!!

I know who I'll be seeing in New Zealand
If I ever return and I want to
I know who I'll be seeing in New Zealand
If I ever get back and I hope I'll do I'll see you.

Looking out the window at a blue New Zealand sky
Watching all the quiet gentle people going by
Far away from what they call the madding crowd
Dreaming in the land of the long white clouds. 
Etc.

This a song by Kentuckyian Tom T Hall.
One wonders where he actually went to report that he watched the "quiet gentle people". Obviously not outside the Old Entomologist on Frog Racing night.

He must have been sleeping when the akvavit-and-black-pudding- fueled riots occurred.

"Sleeping". A.k.a. "tired and jetlagged". Yeah right.

There's a bar in Berlin that holds cockroach races, though the staff at the Old Entomologist get testy if you mention that on frog-racing night, as if you're suggesting that they stole the idea.

There are some citizens in this town who say that the frog races are fixed but these are citizens who do not know the right people. I am one who thinks that the cockroach jockeys try their hardest every time they get on a frog and that people who say otherwise are sore losers.

Wow! That's pretty cool. All we ever got was a freaking Google Maps query...

You have to admit that the brain implants are a bad look such as might attract hostile comments from gutter-minded gossip columnists.
