The bartender says: “Teachers OK?”
The SA Minister of Education replies: “Do I look like I give a sh#t?”

A man buys a pair of takkies from a Chinese Shop and realises he’s been ripped off because there’s one shoelace missing.
The next day he goes back to the shop and complains.
“No” says the shop assistant, “look at label – it says TAIWAN”. 

Bafana Bafana is the only soccer team in the world which does a lap of disgrace.
