The Manus is an extremely infectious disease that is very contagious and can be transmitted instantly from the host body to an unsuspecting victim via a mere slap to the forehead.
Once the Manus is inside you, you feel the word pain you have ever experienced like the Manus is eating you alive. No matter how hard you try to pretend you do not contain the Manus, your face will distort physically different from everyone else’s, and the only thing on your mind will be getting rid of the Manus. People around an infected Manus host body will point out that you now have the ultimate shameness because you have the Manus, but remain at a safe distance and most likely cover their foreheads.
There are only two other way to gain immunity from the Manus from a particular transmitter, one of which is via blocking your forehead using you outturned palm of your hand, yet you must not let your palm touch your forehead. Instead, you may hold your palm a few millimeters in front of your head to guard yourself. If the transmitting host body tries to attack you with their Manus, and you successfully defend yourself (whereby they strike you, but not on the forehead), then you gain immunity while that host body that tried to attack you contains the Manus. Once that host body passed the Manus on to someone else, you are no longer immune.
The Manus resets every night at 12:00pm, and from that time onwards, anyone who was seen the NZ Police advertisement has the power to begin transmitting the Manus. Once the person who passes on the slap gets rid of the Manus, he/she becomes immune to the person he/she passed it onto, yet loses immunity if the slap is passed onto someone else, as the person who passed it on is always immune.
It is important to note that the word “Manus” must also be shouted at the victim to let him/her know what is happening. If the host body does not shout the word “Manus” while slapping the forehead, then the Manus remains with in them, and the person that was attempted to be victimized then becomes immune to the Manus. This is the third and final way of gaining temperamental immunity from the Manus.

1. An insult to use against someone with no actual meaning, it sounds rude but it hasn't got a meaning so dumb maori's on TV in New Zealand can use it without their land being claimed.
2. Manus is a transferable disease that only one person may have at a time. When you have Manus, the effect is completely and utter depression.
You can pass on the Manus to another by hand slapping another persons forehead and say Manus. This transfers the disease onto the other and you are FREE of Manus!
Rules of Manus
1. You can not return Manus to the person who gave it to you, they get protection
2. If your Manus attempt fails (IE you hit someone in the wrong place, you miss, you dont say manus etc) That person is now protected from Manus - but the person who gave it to you IS NO LONGER PROTECTED!
3. You can cover your forehead as long as you DO NOT touch your forehead at any time.
4. MANUS RESETS AT MIDNIGHT. AT THAT POINT SOMEONE MAY GENERATE MANUS. THIS REQUIRES 2 PEOPLE PUNCHING EACHOTHERS FISTS 4 TIMES SAYING MANUS.
1. Oh bro you're tha manus.
2. *SLAP* MANUS! Shame you have the Manus!
An adjective used to describe things like an action performed by someone or a person. Usually means embarrassing.
Used mainly in New Zealand or the Pacific Island culture.
This word is heard on a NZ drink and drive tv advertisement campaign.
Tane: "Ooooh dat shit is manus ma brutha!"
John: "Oh, ya manus."
Pete: "Nah, I ain't manus. You a manus."
On a mare, the hair that covers the anal and equinal regions
In order to prevent birthing complications when delivering the colts, it was necessary for the veterinarian to remove the part of the manus covering the equina.
A terms used by myself and almost everyone at Glen Eden Intermediate in 1980-1981. Used primarily as a form of mockery at someones embarrassment when told off by a teacher, falling over, getting tripped over e.t.c. Basically any act which invited ridicule from friends and people in the general vicinity. It was not "transmissible" nor could you give it to someone by touching them on the forehead or anywhere else.
Someone would "get the manus" through an embarrassing act - at which point everyone else would laugh and point and say "Manus" or perhaps "Manus on your undies".
This word replaced the previous and overused cries of "Shame" or "Shame on your undies" but is of uncertain origin - someone started it and it spread like wildfire. :-)
Calling the teacher "Mum" inadvertantly was a definite manus.
Pronounced manoose; anal cavity of a man, often used when taunting men about their sexual orientacion.
You must love tight manus!
An anus attached to any manly mans anus that eats real manly meals!
