In Other News– Weekend Edition, 10 May 2013

2 min read


The biggest local news that’s happened this week, evidenced by my Twitter stream, is all about Burger King opening in South Africa. It’s not the fact that they’re here, but more the fact that like other multinational chains like KFC and McDonalds they won’t be serving any of that delicious cured porcine flesh, bacon. This, apparently, is an assault on everything good in the world. what do you think? Is the lack of bacon on your whopper a deal breaker?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
