Who said Black football players can't speak English? Thatha!!!
Sibusiso Hadebe of Jomo Cosmos, who is popularly known as Mphasha, drove into a service station in his battered bakkie, clad in shorts, All-Stars, funky hairstyle and i-spoti (floppy hat). He hands the coloured attendant the keys complete with a beautiful Tupac key ring:
Sbu: "Gcwalisa mfethu, i-Super." (Fill up the tank!)
Attendant: "How much?"
Sbu: "Hayi bo, ngithe gcwalisa!" (hey I said fill up the tank!)
Attendant: "I only speak English!"
Sbu: "No problem. Good day to you, Sir. I currently feel a profound desire to replenish the propellant of my motorised vehicle. Therefore, I cordially request you to transfer, from your subterranean reservoir, a sufficient quantity of the combustible fluid of the highest octane rating to fill the appropriate receptable of the said means of perambulation to the brim."
Sbu: "Do you have a problem, Sir? I thought you said you spoke only English?"
Attendant: "English? That is not English!"
Sbu: "My dear Sir, are you veritably attempting to insinuate that you do not even recognise the language which you allege to be your singular means of communication?"
