Sometimes black humour is the only way to cope. These are doing the rounds…
You know you’re in Christchurch when:
1.You use the term “liquefaction” and “seismic design” in casual conversation.
2.Digging a hole and pooping in your garden is no longer weird.
3. Your mayor describes the city as munted. If he means FUBARed, you agree
4.Weaving through car size potholes on the street is no longer weird
5.Going to Wellington to escape earthquakes makes sense
6.A shower is heaven
7.You have a preference of which kind of silt you’d rather shovel, dry or wet
8.You see tanks driving around town
9.You are always noting what you are standing under
10.Due to frequent aftershocks during the night, you sleep like a baby–every 10 minutes you wake up and sh*t yourself.
