I was beginning to think that we’d have a scum-free weekend, but there’s always someone itching to get his name into the annals of scumdom.
Surprisingly no South African politician has said or done anything of major asinine noteworthiness this weekend. They must all be recovering from that gaudy wedding bash held for the President’s daughter.
The National Lottery however continue to have no qualms about squandering the money they amass from the fools who don’t understand the basics of statistics. Tasked with disbursing their gains to charitable and other deserving organizations, the National Lottery continue to fund outrageous schemes designed to benefit the dregs of society.
Fresh from splurging around R40-million on the ridiculously wasteful World Festival of Youth and Students, they have now apparently sponsored R3.7-million for the staging of a concert by the washed-out band Earth Wind & Fire. And this while charitable and educational organizations are in utter despair.
So the next time you have that irrational urge to win millions on the Lotto, think about how your money is being pissed away by the morons in charge of the National Lottery. While your chances of winning millions is pretty-much near zero, your refusal to participate in this fraud scheme will help promote honesty in a country in which this simple attribute is all but deficient.
