Spotting the Funny and Surviving Offense

Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project (HBO) Cable TV Special. RIP to this comic legend

Maloma, it shows you do not consider me when coming across chemical engineering job posts,” a homeboy said to me. He long ago dropped out of high school.

There are a number of issues which turn his statement into deliberate humour:

7 of Tbo Touch’s Touchdowns: Nuggets for Pursuing Success

Some say Tbo Touch (real name, Thabo Molefe) is annoying on radio as he (formerly on his Metro FM show – Touch 326) talks more about himself.

I wrote this post before he left Metro FM to start his own online radio station with Gareth Cliff – Touchcentral. And now it has changed to Touch HD.

Maybe he is a bit of a narcist. I’ve figured there are great variables

The Luck that Failure Brings and the Gonorrhoea Cure Theory of Discovering Greatness

Below is heartfelt text by a young entrepreneur I believe much in, Mpumi Mtinso, founder of Book a Bicycle operating out in Soweto Vilakazi Street – visiting places such as The Hector Pieterson Museum, Soweto Brewery and Nelson Mandela’s house. To add a pun you shouldn’t excuse, literary if you bring books to them, you will get a discount on a bicycle ride. But I like his creative sarcasm more.

Here is the text:

“A couple weeks before this picture was taken, I was lost and desperate. Every entrepreneur hits a phase in life where they want to give up their dream and give in to a 9-5. So I applied for a job at a ‘creative mag’ and got called in for an interview. Awesome! Didn’t tell any of my family or friends, just my nigga Thulane of Book of Swag because I needed directions, hahaha.

At the interview I was asked where do I see myself in 5 years. My response was, ‘if not at a higher position at this magazine, I see myself, FRONT ROW SEAT MEDIA & BOOK A BICYCLE taking over the world.’ After my this response, one of the ladies interviewing me was impressed and ready to hire a Guluva and the other lady kept saying but your 5 year plan means you going to leave us. Which in my head she was implying that I won’t be getting any promotion in the next coming 5 years. The following day the ladies call me to tell me

I didn’t get the job. Cool. After the call I came back to my senses.

Applied my all to BOOK A BICYCLE and I scored myself a live in studio interview at 5FM.I spoke about BOOK A BICYCLE and other things.

The next week, I’m jamming to 5FM and I hear the same ladies that rejected me at their mag, getting interviewed on the same show as me.

Point of this story is, rejection don’t mean you useless or not worthy. Rejection should open yours eyes to other opportunities. Or like me bring you back to your senses.

O.M.G can’t believe you read this whole story Hahaha.

Go out there and conquer.

The war isn’t over, but lil victories shall be celebrated.”

The Art of Theft and a Montage of How Popular Culture Steals Dance Moves from ZCC’s Mokhukhu Bands

Is it a coincidence that most popular daces today have a resemblance to ZCC (Zion Christian Church) mokhukhu bands’ moves? Check out how the dance looks like here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P6wd1rz0bs.

On that in a minute. [If you are here just for the humour, and not the science of artistic theft, scroll straight to B.]

How Good Teachers Pee

In grade 8 I was in a boarding school. I was new at the school, and so was everyone in my dormitory.

There were three known bedwetters. Only twice was I the fourth – but the unknown. The first time it occurred, I prayed hard that it doesn’t happen again. When it repeated, I stopped relying on prayer and instead used what God gave me – a brain. I got innovative and creative.

My innovation worked. I never

I’ve had this article as draft for over a year now. Several times it went into my ‘to delete’ folder, but it becomes truer and truer. So I had to revive it and publish it.

Our minds are always fondling the past and taking guesses of the future – of their glories and misfortunes.

Thoughts of misfortune bear worry and stress.

1000 Ways the Post Office Doesn’t Want You Use Them

One older comedian asked a young comic, “Are you married?” The younger comic replied “no!” Astonished, the older comedian said, “then what do you for aggravation!”

While married people in the world have one another for their daily dosage of aggravation, in South Africa everyone gets it from the government and State Owned Enterprises.

We have an oversupply.

Our government makes sure our daily dosage is well catered: inaccurate to insane water and electricity bills, Nkandla, state capture, etc. Good service delivery on the part of our government!

Even the president gets his daily dosage of aggravation.

Although We Hate eTolls, Here are 4 Wonderful Things About Them

“I hate e-tolls, you hate e-tolls, we all hate e-tolls”. We all know who said these famous revolutionary words.

No one wants to be tolled for utilizing a road; especially one which was previously free to use. These people just painted the road darker and made expensive loans on our behalf. Now they expect us to pay for them. What sickness is this?
