Election 2019

election2019

During the last several months we were bombarded with promises.

Now that the election is behind us, we will have a four year period of broken promises followed by another year of new promises – and so it will continue …

Some of the promises:

  • A better life for all (those with the right connections)
  • Free houses (if you can jump the queue?).
  • Jobs, jobs, jobs (created by ruining the economy, Eskom, Transnet, SAA, etc. Perhaps you can get jobs in a Saxonwold shebeen.).
  • Doubled social grants (Sorry, VBS is already looted to extinction).
  • Free higher (decolonised, gravity free) education.
  • Free organic waste vegetables.
  • Electric cars (powered by Eskom wind turbines?).
  • Jail time for those implicated in state capture (Yeah, right!)
  • Jailtime for the Zuptas.

OK, I made the last one up. It’s a promise only I am daring enough to make (and break – so there).

EU Burokrasie en die Oorlog op Huisvroue

Hier is die jongste gekheid van die Europese Unie se Brusselse burokrate. Jy weet al van die besluite oor stofsuiers, elektriese ketels, wasmasjiene, elektriese motors en vele meer. Alles in die naam van “Global Warming” maar met die versteekte doel om vroue se lewens net moeiliker te maak.

pennetjie

Nou loods hulle ‘n aanval op, wait for it, Wasgoedpennetjies! Die redenasie is as volg:
Die pennetjies is van hout en staal gemaak, enersyds word die wereld ontbos en andersyds is die proses om erts te myn en in staal te verwerk koolstof (!) intensief. Die opdrag is dus dat alle wasgoedpennetjies nou net half grootte gemaak moet word! Minder hout en staal en dus minder koolstof in die atmosfeer.

Die denkfout wat hulle hier begaan is natuurlik dat mense nou twee keer  soveel pennetjies sal nodig hê om wasgoed op te hang. En omdat die hout nou dunner is, breek hulle makliker en moet dus meer dikwels vervang word.

Soos met die ander genoemde regulasies, sal hierdie een net die teenoorgestelde uitwerking hê.

Lees die hele storie met van die snaakste illustrasies hier in Engels in Der Spiegel – (en plastiek pennetjies? Nein, nein! Verboten!)

Many a Freudian slip …

… twixt the lip and the whatever!

What kind of a valley are they writing about?!

The cutting below includes a Freudian slip as well as an unintended double entendre.

This delightful slip occurred on the front page nogal of our local community paper, the People’s Post.
