ZUMA’S FAMILY VALUES
LAST WEEK Jacob Zuma addressed members of the media in Johannesburg at an ANC image-boosting session. He enthusiastically repeated his idea of remote schools (which were actually fairly reminiscent of Russian labour camps) for pregnant teenagers. That made one of those present remark under his breath it might be good idea to banish the future mothers to Robben Island among the rabbits.
And perhaps there would also be room for a rebellious Julius Malema. On the other hand, perhaps that wouldn’t be such a good idea for someone with so little self-control…
A FISHING TALE
ONE MORNING the husband returns the boat to the couple’s lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. His wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Along comes a Fish & Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside and says to the woman: “Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replies (thinking: Isn’t that obvious?)
“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” the warden informs her.
“I’m sorry, officer – but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
“Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the warden.
“That’s true – but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”
“Have a nice day, Ma’am,” the warden said as he sped off.
