5 Things Friday: Five Things South-Africans can talk about except Oscar Pistorius

This case is driving me nuts! It is nonstop on the radio, television, newspapers, twitter, bars, clubs, the queue in Woolworths. Seriously people, can this just stop? I wish he could be either convicted or let loose because I can honestly not survive another day of hearing his name or Barry Roux or Gerrie Nel or stories about fans on balconies and people who are overly affectionate of guns.

So here are 5 topics you can discuss should you feel the need to discuss things of actual importance:

The upcoming elections

Because 99.99% of South-Africans are either dumb or blind sighted by misplaced loyalty, it is a given that the ANC will win this year’s elections. However, feel free to discuss Helen Zille’s ridiculous attire, Mangosuthu Buthelezi’s eternal hope that he will become president and Julius’s “trust-fund” to clear the money he owes to SARS.

Nkandla

Remember that ridiculous estate our President claims he didn’t ask for? Yes, talk about why we are paying so much tax, which brings us to the next point for discussion.

E-tolls

That thing road users in Gauteng are paying obscene amounts for? Mr. President, I did not ask for E-tolls so I am not paying them. Let’s all talk how we will rather go to prison than pay more taxes to our corrupt government so that more fire pools can be built.

Shrien Dewani

Who finally arrived in SA but is now in the loony bin, taking more of our tax money.

Many Other Topics

The Weather, rugby, cricket, soccer, loadshedding, how many chocolates you are planning to eat for Easter, what you will do for easter, etc. etc.

So now that you have topics, please stop talking about Oscar.

Thanks

    • That guy… and so many out there just defending what he did and I want to shake them – He killed an innocent woman!

      Aww thanks! I will definitely put some audio up on a later stage!

  1. We hear a great deal too! In the uk ours is all about celebrity peodophiles and the news of the world bugging scandal which has been going on for years.

    • So much drama hey! Sometimes wish I could just not have to listen to news but then I remember I still want some knowledge as to what is up in this world. Thanks for dropping by 🙂
