The Pancake Palookas

09 January 2014, 19:25
The French description of a beret is a "sort of flat woollen cap, worn by the local peasants"; in South Africa one can swap peasants for palookas*.

One can only laugh at the Pancake Palooka Brigades. Not only are the EFF claiming that the sole right to wearing the red beret belongs to them but now the ANC is doing so too. Have these brats got nothing better to do than to fight behind the bicycle shed?
Who gives both of these dis-organisations the right to claim the red beret as their own? Surely there are better things to bicker about?

When one wears the beret in the current “cowpat” style as they all do it is no wonder that they have $h1t for brains and on that note I bestow a special Palooka Pancake upon the empty vessel of  Vusi Mona of Sanral, no one else deserves it better right now, wear it with pride Vusi.

*Palooka: a stupid, uncouth person; a lout.

An ode to silence, and peace

"Seek peace, and pursue it" is an injunction from the Good Book. It was, I gather, something King David once said. And who better to wish for it, given his tumultuous life.  Read more...
