Face of the day


Ngoc Luan Ho Trieu with a secret santa gift that was given to him as a mean-spirited prank.

Two years later and he is still sad? I think that his interpretation of the gift may be a cultural misunderstanding. Australians would give some one a pooing reindeer because they would find it very funny, not necessarily to make the point that someone’s work is poo.

Look at these delicious treats that can all be purchased here in New Zealand. We have a similar sense of humor to the Australians I think.

Have you ever been upset by a secret santa gift that you thought was mean spirited?

    A clash of cultures.

    The best Secret Santa pressie ever got- and I could have chosen to be offended by it- was a pair of ear plugs. As I’m a music teacher I guess it was a hint that I have to listen to some pretty terrible noises being made in the name of ‘music’! Very clever, original and apt I thought.

    The first time I did Secret Santa I felt like I got punched in the gut when I recieved two $1 scratchies. But then I realised I could get my revenge next year so I now look forward to it every time.

      Yeah, but until you scratched them they were worth $10k each.

    When in Rome … Unless there is more to this he needs to get an Australian sense of humour. If there is more to it, get a sense of humour. And as for the media giving it a life, typical, perhaps the horrid could put it on the front page.

    Mate, staring at the reindeer’s butt all day is not going to help the situation. Let it go – literally and figuratively – and move on with your life.
