WHEN striker Benni McCarthy was dropped from Bafana Bafana's final World Cup 2010 squad by coach Carlos Alberto Parreira late last month he became a Trending Topic (most tweeted about topic) on social networking site Twitter.

People went on about why he was excluded from the squad, with most people blaming it on his weight.

Some called his exclusion a "big fat joke".

Now the same Bafana Banana has joined the West Ham United player in being ridiculed on the Net.

"Buffoon Buffoon" is the national team's newly acquired name on the social network.

But the comment attributed to McCarthy takes the cake. "Feel it! It is gone!" the striker is quoted as saying.
