JOHANNESBURG. A knife-proof vest being marketed to British tourists as a must-have item at the 2010 World Cup has been slammed by the South African governmen, which says it is completely pointless as most tourists killed will either be shot or run over by taxis. However the country has recommitted itself to killing as few tourists as possible.
However, this morning the South African government condemned the armoured items, describing them as alarmist, reactionary and discriminatory against people who earn a living through knife crime.
But, said spokesman Whiplash Mahlangu, the real outrage was how ineffective the vests would be in keeping tourists alive.[/quote]
Are you fucking kidding me???
“The world is coming,” he said. "The important thing to remember is that of the 500,000 guests coming to our shores, 499,974 will be going home alive.[/quote]
Honestly, that is THE most ridiculous thing I have ever read.
When you have spokesmen like this representing an ENTIRE country, you can be surprised the whole place is going to shit.
