Am feeling thick - I came by to condescendingly inform you that black boxes are flourescent orange (helps recovery bods find them on sea bed - don't think too long on that), before realising that all the answers were oxymoronic! Didn't realise kiwi fruit were also known as Chinese gooseberries - here they're called natschis.
