How to escape Judgement day

12 January 2013, 19:36

THUMBS UP for JJ_D who posted the article, “FFS Enough is enough!!. What a great article, unbiased and straight to the point. Note the overwhelming positive response from the MyNews24 community (I’m just wondering if the response would be the same if the contributor was say e.g. white). Anyway, I would just like to add, and I quote:

“It's clear from the comments here that although you're quite okay with Steve, Sipho, Rajesh or Elvin in the streets, behind closed doors you harbor such negative feelings that it can't be healthy for your hearts.”

In the sentence above, is “Elvin” the colored guy? If so, I’d suggest you use the name “Gatiep”. Everybody can readily relate to Gatiep. I mean, when you hear the name “Gatiep”, you always picture a colored guy in an overall, with his front teeth out, and a sDori cap on his head. For the more imaginative folk, the colored guy holds a box of I&J in his hands. Don’t you agree, JJ_D.

THUMBS UP for the AngryRhinoFarmer who injected poison into his rhino’s horns. Damn!, This is one badass farmer. I bet this farmer can milk Cape Velvet from a cow if he wanted, Hahahaha (come on, that was funny.) This article was shared on facebook about 60 times! It is all part of getting message across to all the other rhino farmers. I doubt many other farmers will read this article as there is very bad reception on a farm. Farmers aren’t really into Facebook and stuff. Too much effort. However I’m glad those poachers get what they deserve. Whose livers are poached NOW?! Huh?

THUMBS UP for our deputy president who dubbed our president . . . wait for it . . .THE ACTION MAN!! The thumbs up is not for the president or any of his actions. The thumbs up is for our deputy who so colorfully describes the president. THE ACTION MAN. Here’s one you haven’t heard before: What do you get when you cross a public figure with an action man . . . an action figure. More specifically, an action figure with a cape and an “S” on his chest (“S” for ‘shower’ not for ‘super’, of course (also, the action figure has a button in its back and a shower-head on its head, when you press that button, the shower head sprays holy water and cleanses everyone of their sins.) . . .). No, I’m sorry, Mr Ramaphosi, but your president’s “actions” LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED.

THUMBS UP for the phrase: “Leaves much to be desired”. I like this phrase. Whenever I add this phrase to a sentence, I feel a little smarter. It’s like the phrase comes with free IQ points. But, I often wonder if people use this phrase in their everyday lives, e.g.: “Honey, you know I never complain about our sex life but, your attitude towards giving head, leaves much to be desired.”  You can even add a little creative twist to it: “but your attitude towards giving head leaves much to be sexually desired.” Sounds fitting don’t it?

Finally, How to escape Judgement Day

Judgement Day is reserved for earth, right?  Let’s all board a rocket and escape to one of the other five Gliese planets that can sustain life. Just imagine the stunt look on God’s face as he descends with his fiery angels, just to find there’s no-one home. I’ve tried to imagine that stunt look many times before but all I can come up with is a face that resembles those masks they used in the “Scream” movies. I doubt our president aka the Action Man have any plans to launch a rocket into space. But, it is something he must consider. If he can fly us all away from earth, free from God's terror, then indeed, I will someday buy my son the action figure and all the comics of The Action Man.
