Grimlad vir die dag

2015-08-27 06:00

OP ’n dag loop ’n vent die kantoor van ’n talentsoeker binne en sê: “Ek het vir jou ’n nuwe ster gebring ... dis my hond ... hy kan praat.’’

“Ja, ja, ja,’’ teem die ongelowige talentsoeker, “bewys dit.’’

“Kom, Wagter,’’ sê die vent, “sê vir my wat is iemand wat moor, roof en steel?’’

“Boef! Boef,’’ blaf die hond.

“En hoe voel skuurpapier?’’ vra die vent weer­.

“Rof, rof,’’ blaf die hond met ‘n heserige stem.

“Goed, sê nou vir my wie was die grootste Suid-Afrikaanse rugbypersoonlikheid van die twintigste eeu?’’

“Naas. Naas,’’ maak die hond keel skoon terwyl hy op die kantoorvloer kwyl.

Die talentsoeker is glad nie beïndruk met die tipiese hondegeluide wat hy gehoor het nie en hy jaag die vent saam met sy hond uit sy kantoor uit.

’n Paar oomblikke later kyk die hond in die straat op na sy baas en sê: “Moes ek dalk Danie Craven gesê het?’’
