Rick, you would. I promise you.
Kiwis pronounce things quite differently. It's like a Canadian saying "aboot." It's the little things that set close accents apart. An Aussie will pick a Kiwi as soon as they say "fish and chips." A New Zealander will probably pronounce it "fesh and cheps." Some of their vowel sounds are quite different.
