Green Lake is a lake situated in Rotorua, New Zealand, resting between Blue Lake, and Lake Tawarewa. The Maori name for the lake is Lake Rotokakahi.
Another alternative name for Green Lake is the 'Lagua del Theviere', or translated literally into the 'Lake of Thieves'. This name was given by the Spanish explorer, Pedro Martinez III in 1812, who named it after the Maori people, who are essentially thieves, burglars, and robbers.
Currently, taxpayers are not allowed easy access to Green Lake because of the Maoris. However this is not a major problem as access would cause victimisation to the taxpayer, by way of theft, robbery, rape, graffiti and whinging about Tangater Fenua.
"Hey, I went down to the Lagua del Theviere the other day"
"The Green Lake?"
"Yes, hence why I have no shoes, empty pockets and a black eye"
