In Other News – 22 February 2016

Okay look, I have ideas. Ideas on how to save the country ahead of the budget speech. You don’t need to hike VAT or charge extra with the Sin Tax. We’ll just tax sloppy websites instead. Clickbait headline? That’ll cost ya? Excessive hollering and acting like a buffoon on YouTube? That’ll cost ya. Ass-kissing to the extreme in your posts? Pal, that won;t just cost ya. That’s a paddlin’ that is followed by all your assets being seized. Join me folks. Together, we can make South Africa great again.

And possibly build a wall to keep clickbait away from our borders.

In Other News: Something Fowl fleets this way, Dragon Age is feeling tactical, Hyper Light Drifter is in limbo on Wii U and Nathan Fillion’s many faces.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    It’s just another Mammoth Monday, I wish it were Sabretooth Sunday, cos that’s myARGHOMGGETITOFFME

    • Hammersteyn

      That last part is almost like the Sword Art Online video starts – VRMMORPG

  • Jan Prins

    Me: “Yay! Dying Light tonight!”
    She: “The Pastor is coming for the marriage talk. Thingy.”

    • VampyreSquirrel

      She called it a “marriage talk thingy”?

    • Jonah Cash

      It’s bad when your lady says: “we need to talk” but saying: ‘the priest is coming over to talk to us” is just so much worse… Have fun.

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      Hahahahahahha!! There’s always later, like playing dying light until 2 in the morning is always a good idea!!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    I’m loving how the titles of the moderators keeps changing…

      The guitar also falling down is just super unlucky. The TV is planned by the cat obviously!!

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        Aah man, cats are a**holes, ours, quite literally looked me in the eyes, while pushing his brother off of the kitty jungle gym…

        • Jonah Cash

          He was actually saying that as soon as he has the power he will push you as well O_o

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            Yes! Exactly! Bastards, but we still love them…

      • yeah right. That guitar was planned too. The cat is genius. Evil. Evil genius!!!

    • Hammersteyn

      XBOX off?

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    Sin taxes… So, buy all your booze now if you’re into it before you start paying four hundred and billion and forty and two thousand and a few extra rand for a beer…

    • HvR

      Actually looks like spirits, wine and sparkling wine sin tax will go down, so get your liver ready to replace the Castle with some Olof.

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        Yes!!! Finally some good news!! Hopefully it won’t just drops with 0.00000000031% which would roughly equate to about 48673295 rands per bottle of Port…

    I find it surprising that DOA Xtreme 3 still haven’t included a suggestive sun screen squirting scene in any of their trailers.
