A question

I was parked next to this bakkie and was left wondering what he does with his spare 30 minutes?

  1. Morning Soutie,
    Which 30 minutes of each day will it be useless ‘phoning him then?

    Incidentally where does the word bakkie come from?

  2. Hi JH, I’ve never thought of it!

    A ‘bak’ is a bowl or dish, a ‘bakkie’ is by definition a small bowl or dish, the ‘ie’ giving the diminutive.

    I have a feeling that Datsun produced a half ton pick up and called it a bakkie (although the word was already in use.) Sure is a lot easier on the tongue than pick up or LDV, LUV etc.
