Well what a hoo-haa yesterday.
There I was just parking off on a bench, minding my own business in my traditional Sunday outfit and smoking my occasional equally traditional pipe.
'Twas just reflecting on the wonderful SA cricket and wondering why no-one had told me about it. I think I could have got my Springbok colours there rather, had I tried my hand at that. You see I can juggle three oranges so do have ball skills.
So there I was just chilling, checking out the ducks on the river, when out of the blue, two Olympic security guards rushed up to me and screamed, 'For goodness sake stop smoking the pipe!'
They were really panicky so I replied - perhaps a little too calmly, 'Hey shoo you, where I come from its like traditional!'
They went, 'No! No! Its not that! Just look at the smoke rings you are blowing! You are not allowed to use or make the Olympic rings in any, any form you fool! The Olympic Brand Police will get you!'
I freaked having realized the gravity of the situation and shouted, 'I am like really sorry. Thanks so much for warning me!'
We spent the rest of the evening trying to wave the rings away.
Just imagine what could have happened! You really don't want to mess with the Olympic Brand Police!
But sometimes I think they should really just go put it in their pipes and smoke it!
But for goodness sake don't say I said that.....
Have a great week!!
