Adam Green from Mai FM's B-rocka's Bad Breakfast writes: "After seeing the O for Ocean piece on David Tua in Sideswipe, we decided to put it out to our listeners ... A lot of texts/calls came through, including one from David's wife and manager Robina Tua, who sets the record straight after 17 years. She says what David actually said was O For Olsen, as in Olsen Filipaina, the famous Kiwi league player and good friend of the Tua family. After some intense YouTube listening we wholeheartedly agree. But she did also say that O For Awesome being what it is now, they are happy to have it that way."

Even more Kiwi One-Liners: Some smells do linger, Jean (Glade air freshener; possibly an Australian); Good afterble Constanoon (drink driving ad); Oh no, not marge! (likely to be a butter ad); Ponder this (TV3's John Campbell); It's a hard job finding the perfect woman (original Speights ad); I can't get by without my Mum (deodorant ad); I can smell the uranium on it [your breath] as you lean forward (David Lange, Oxford Union debate); It's our time, kia ora, talofa (Suzy Cato on You & Me); That's my mum, the one with the baggy pantyhose (pantyhose ad); What's yours, Dad? [reply in a very deep voice]. Beef (Lotsa Noodles); I think I am currently on $2 an hour (Melissa Lee).

More on Kiwi One-Liners: "That'll be the phone" was from the 1970s sitcom Buck House starring John Clarke. It was said by everybody in the show. And doh! The Rob Muldoon comment in yesterday's Sideswipe was supposed to be "New Zealanders who emigrate to Australia raise the average IQ of both countries". Apologies.

Rubin of Devonport writes: "A bicycle with Jetstar advertising (which read: "Low-cost fares. No-cost bikes") was chained to a post outside the Air New Zealand head office in Fanshawe St. Rather than good advertising, it just sent a message that, given Jetstar's recent performance, if you weren't using the national carrier, a bicycle might prove more reliable and get you there faster than Jetstar."
