I couldn’t believe my eyes this afternoon, there I was, driving down a rather busy main road in one of our industrial areas and saw this, a perfect example of how not to unload a container.

How I laughed at midday today, here’s the lead story from my local radio station (Algoa FM), you’ve got to admire the cheek of the officer!

Cheap lamb chops anyone?

In his tweets, Cliff refers to traffic police as “pigs”, “porkers” or “bacon rashers”.

News 24 reports that Cliff has now hired a lawyer and that nobody is quite sure if a crime has been committed or not!

I rather like the term ‘dust bathing’ 🙂
