** In the song "Hurt Feelings", Jemaine laments about how his family forgot to call him on his birthday. His next line in the song is "The day after my birthday is not my birthday, mom." At first, this just seems tragically hilarious. However, when you consider time zones and the fact that Jemaine's mom most likely lives in New Zealand, it makes perfect sense that she would call him the day after his birthday. It was his birthday in New Zealand.
*** No, it's the other way around. If it's the 10th in New Zealand, it's the 9th in the USA. To ring someone on their birthday in the USA you have to ring them the day after their birthday in New Zealand.

However, when you consider time zones and New Zealand is 17-18 hours ahead of the fact that Jemaine's mom most likely lives in New Zealand, it makes perfect sense that USA's east coast. Ergo, she would call actually called him the day ''two'' days after his birthday. It was his birthday in New Zealand.

* {{Tearjerker}}: The hero's misfortunes in "Hurt Feelings" are played for laughs, but the ones in the reprise... not so much.

** Played for laughs, sure, but still pretty sad. "The day after my birthday is ''not'' my birthday, mum!" Owtch!
