- In New Zealand, a striking phrase was chosen as the quote of the year. At a public election of Massey University, 'Please tell me this is not your penis' came out as the winner.
The sentence was used in Shortland Street, the longest running soap of New Zealand. Character Chris Warner spoke the sentence after a nude photo of his son, which was meant for his girlfriend, appeared on the iPad of the family. The verdict was the cliffhanger of the episode.
In February, the relevant fragment was broadcast and the scene quickly went viral. Eighteen percent of the total of 7328 votes chose the sentence.
