Friday funnies

Another crazy week has passed and we survived :) Here are some Friday funnies to gear you up for the weekend.

Wives are funny creatures.... They don't have SEX with their husbands for weeks and then they want to kill the woman who does!

Wat is die toppunt van rassisme? As die tuinjong weier om die Afrikanertjies nat te gooi.

Non aan priester - ek bely ek dra nie panties nie. Priester: jou sondesis vergewe, betaal R20 en doen 5 wawiele tot by die altaar.

Boss to blonde secretary in interview: What is the difference between a paperclip and a screw. Secretary: I don't know I've never been paperclipped.

Wat is die toppunt van geraas? Twee geraamtes wat woelig Spyker op 'n sinkdak met 'n Coke blikkie as 'n kondoom!

Hulle het uitgevind dat Adam gay was. Geen normale man sal langs 'n kaal vrou sit en appels vreet nie!

Wat is die nuwe weergawe van: 'Boom,Boom,Boom,Boom, I want U in my room'?Sakkie,Sakkie,Sakkie,Sakkie, Kom ons gaan spyker in my bakkie!

Tannie vang oom met Playboy: ''En wat is dit die?' 'Ag, ou vrou, dis soos 'n Getawaytydskrif, 'n mens sien die mooiste plekke waar jy nooit sal kom nie!'

Ma, Pa en blonde Sannie ry in die wildtuin rond. Sannie se venster is oop. Die volgende oomblik storm 'n volstruis op haar af en pik haar blou. Na 5min vanstillte se Sannie: 'Fokken duif!'

I've found a great new diet and exercise routine! Take one Weetbix. Takean Aero chocolate bar. Crumble the Aero over the Weetbix. Voila! AEROBIX !

SA Queers Up In Arms Over Fake 'Gay Idols' Contest

South African Queer folk are up in arms over being led up the garden path by an alleged, con artist over several local queer events which turned out to be quite less than what was promised.
According to sources Tony Lorenz aka Antonio Manuel de Sousa aka Tony de Sousa is being sought for fraud.

Being sought for fraud however doesn't faze him one bit and he is proceeding with further bogus 'events' such as "SA Gay Idol" for which he doesn't even hold the local registration, nor trademark. (See Facebook.)

This after the so-called "Mr Gay SA International" fiasco - where the winner did not receive most of his prizes. The winner was also not entered and flown to the main Mr Gay International event as promised by Mr Lorenz on the South African Gay Radio Station show, Bravo Brava. Legal proceedings regarding this matter have also been initiated.
It actually transpired that someone else, Mr Andy Le Monier from Pretoria, owns the rights to the title "Mr Gay International SA" and is the actual approved affiliate of the international competition in South Africa.

We also have a confidential private investigators report on hand which states that Mr Tony Lorenz aka de Sousa -1. is being sued by several parties2. does not reside in SA but in the USA and slips in and out of the country3. is not allowed to have a bank account in SA - the last one he had was with ABSA in 2004, of which +- R15 000 was written of as bad debt4. purports to act under the name of a CC - Cool Connections CC - which is not a registered close corporation at all5. is being investigated by SARS

When pressured about the so-called recording contract on offer as a prize in his next alleged fraudulent even, SA Gay Idol, his local partner of the event, Marshall Naidu responded on the wall of the Facebook event:"We have not yet secured a recording contract with any company, we are still in working on that with a few companies...if you read carefully you would see that it says 'YOU COULD WIN' "

Thus, no recording contract exists. Thus bogus prizes on offer.

It would appear that Mr Lorenz aka de Sousa is using the South African queer community as a cash cow and duping people into believing in his bogus events and titles. How many got conned into buying tickets in advance for above mentioned event? How many entered the alleged bogus competition only to get their dreams shattered? If you've been a victim of Mr Lorenz aka Souza's fraudulent schemes you are welcome to contact Queerlife with the details. (follow the title-link from this website and their details is on the 'contact us' page)

In reaction to above story, we have received the following statement regarding above story from Mr Naidu, after it was published:
Dear Editor
Please note that I have withdrawn all support from this event and wish not to be associated with it.I am not Tony's partner nor his assistant in SA Gay Idol. I was asked by Tony to assist and being in the entertainment industry I saw this event as a platform to showcase the talent in our community.I was not aware of legal proceeding against him and have not been involved with his previous events. You may quote me.Should you require any further information, please feel free to contact me.
Best wishes,
Marshall Naidu

Miriam Makeba - you will be missed Mama Africa

Issued by: ZM Makeba Trust and Siyandisa Music

10th November 2008

The world was dealt a blow early this morning, in a small town outside Naples, Italy when Zenzile Miriam Makeba..Mama Afrika to the world, passed away.. and left this earth, aged 76 years. She was born on 4th March 1932.

Whilst this great lady was alive she would say “I will sing until the last day of my life”

Zenzile Miriam Makeba collapsed on stage, at the end of her set, after singing Pata Pata,. She was immediately attended to by her grandson Nelson Lumumba Lee and others before being rushed to the nearest hospital. Tragically, in the early hours of this 10th of November 2008 morning, the doctors pronounced that they were unable to revive her.

Ambassador Makeba, was with her band, and was performing before an outdoor audience, in the open air at Via Verde, in the small town of Castelvolturno, not far from Naples. The audience included her long time friend, Italian promoter, Roberto Meglioli, who she had called on Friday from Holland, and asked to attend her show. He was on stage with her at the end of the show, and there she collapsed into his arms.

Dr Miriam Makeba never forgot her struggle through her life, and never stopped identifying with those who were downtrodden and who suffered. An activist to the end, the event where she was performing at, was an Anti-Racism and Anti-Mafia Event. “Mazi” as she was affectionately known by those who knew her well, never shied from speaking her mind and standing for her beliefs. She was an outstanding South African, a and indeed a gracious and true citizen of the World.

Zenzile Miriam Makeba is survived by her grandchildren Nelson Lumumba Lee and Zenzi Monique Lee, and her great- grandchildren Lindelani, Ayanda and Kwame.

MEN.STYLE.COM: Forward Thinkers

Yohji Yamamoto
"Am I still going to be alive in 2009? I really hope so. I am a designer; I will go on designing until I die. This is my way of talking about 2009, 2010…"

John Galliano
"Fashion has an insatiable appetite for change, for the new and for the innovative. Anything goes, as long as it's exciting."

Giorgio Armani
"It is difficult for me to talk about what other designers will do, but in terms of look, I suspect we will see a return to more elegant, classic dressing. This will be because people will want to purchase clothes that have a longer life span and are therefore a better investment. I have always preferred this design aesthetic, so there will be no great change in my approach. Clothes and accessories should, to my way of thinking, be more about style than fashion, and have a sophisticated, timeless quality, rather than be slaves to transient trends."

Frida Giannini, creative director, Gucci
"Brands like Gucci have seasonal trends, and so it will be next year—keeping the iconic and contemporary element, but always staying truthful to the brand's core values and DNA: glamour, luxury, craftsmanship, and made in Italy."
