A mouthful or full tank

Do what you love, love what you do!

Who said black soccer players can't speak English? Thatha!

Jabu Pule (Mahlangu) drives his Gusheshe into a service station, clad in shorts, All-Stars, funky beard and i-spoti (small hat). He hands the coloured attendant the keys complete with a beautiful Tupac keyring:

Jabu: "Gcwalisa mfethu, i-Super" (gcwalisa means fill up the tank)

Attendant: "How much?"

Jabu: "Hayi bo, ngithe gcwalisa!" (Hey, I said fill up the tank)

Attendant: "I only speak English!"

Jabu: "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 receptacle of the said means of perambulation to the brim."

Attendant: "Heh?"

Jabu: "Do you have a problem Sir? I thought you said you spoke only English?"

Attendant: "English? That is not English!"

Jabu: "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?"

Attendant: "Heh?"

Thata Jabu...
