Jafa is a slang term (usually pejorative) for a resident of Auckland, New Zealand. It is the acronym for Just Another Fucking Aucklander. This prejudice against Aucklanders started to appear within the last four decades, and is considered to be representative of the boorishness of Aucklanders, or the envy of the rest of New Zealand, depending on the perspective. The term is also misspelled as Jaffa, a chocolate confection from Dunedin, and is often used in sentences which render the original term useless in the grammatical sense. The term has wider currency than the earlier derogatory term "Rangitoto Yank" A variant is Jaffa for Just Another Fuckwit From Auckland.
