NewsHub reports that there were some hilarious reactions to the news that the bits from the Chinese space rocket happened to miss New Zealand.
As we all know, the out-of-control rocket zoomed back to earth, and there was some speculation about where the bits would land. And, instead of expressing great relief that New Zealand was given a miss -- despite our world-shaking reputation right now -- commenters gave rein to the odd Kiwi sense of humor.
"Is it weird that I'm disappointed that #LongMarch5B didn't land closer to New Zealand?" one person asked on Twitter.
As others pointed out, it meant that no nosy reporters were given the chance to ask the stray bits what they thought of New Zealand, and how did they "feel" about the unscheduled crash.
"Rockets can't afford to land in Wellington," another remarked.
Though another did meditate that it would have been very disappointing if his house was demolished before he had had finished the cheesecake in the fridge.
