Tomorrow the fambly are having another try at getting to the spot they didn’t get to over the last long weekend due to rain, snow, sleet, and lots of squidgy mud. More bad weather is in the offing. I have urged them to recite:
Reschedule, and choose a non-vacation
For your restart.
Absurdly, they prefer the ‘Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day,’ version.
AWFULLY DRY HUMOUR:
(I have thought all of these up personally, which isn’t to say some or all haven’t been thought up by somone else first.)
What sea surrounds most of South Africa? Idio-sea.
(OK, so this one’s a bit wet.)
What is South Africa’s national anthem? Stupid ditty.
Why does South Africa’s petrol price keep rising? Fuelishness.
Why can’t SA politicians take lessons? They’re more-ons.
What is a major problem in SA? A miner one.
What is SA’s greatest liability? The lie ability of the politicians.
Printers of ‘Made in South Africa’ labels have gone out of business due to lack of demand. The labels fell apart, anyway.
Is a salver for visiting cards a family trait?
Does an unsuccessful hunter learn from his missed steaks?
Would an American motorist in South Africa saying, ‘Fill up with gas,’ be served a double helping of baked beans?
If only our government departments were snail-paced. Snails actually do get things done.
Mind you, the politicians are like snails. They have got to where they’re at on layers of slime.
For those bloggers who have recently been boasting about their snails, look at the ones we have to contend with!
