Stegmann must be the only oke in the world that could win a hide and seek competition whilst playing international rugby.

What does Cosatu have that Bafana Bafana doesn’t? World-class strikers.

I’m in a long line to use the bathroom -- this is the REAL Game Of Thrones.

Worrying trend in nationalisation debate is number of people, who spell it with a z. Resist Americanism!

America's debt ceiling is so high, even Charlie Sheen has tried to stage an intervention.
