Google says 'all New Zealanders f**k sheep'

  • 18/12/2017

We live at a time in history when all of the world's knowledge is just a click away.

But there was just one question on Reddit user StackableGoats' mind over the weekend: "Do New Zealanders f**k sheep?"

To his surprise, Google had an answer: "Yes. All New Zealanders do in fact f**k sheep," his phone's Google Assistant app said out loud.

"My husband and I were discussing how all the koalas in Australia have chlamydia," StackableGoats wrote on the New Zealand section of Reddit.

"We were spitballing about how the first koala got chlamydia to pass it on to all the other ones, and after a search we found out it was from livestock. He said 'well, how did the sheep get chlamydia?' And I said 'from the New Zealanders'. He didn't believe me, and well there you go."

Google doesn't actually believe this, as far as Newshub can tell. Instead, the internet giant's phone app delivered StackableGoats a line from the top search result - a blog entry written in 2008 titled 'The truth about New Zealanders and sheep'.

Newshub asked Apple's digital assistant Siri the same question - she took offence at the language, saying: "There's no need for that."

Reddit users didn't seem put out by Google's revelations.

"Not even 50 percent of the population do this. Only the males really," wrote libraryaddict.

"I've never believed that about New Zealanders, never. Australians, maybe, but never New Zealanders... never," added peanutbutterandsocks.

"How do you think I feel, I get double the prejudice," said TheWelshKiwi56.

"It's true, I'm f**king a sheep right now," said monbalema.
