I never really got into this whole Movember vibe apart from maybe growing a fokken ugly moustache a few years back and like most men who grew a lip-lapa for the month of November, ending up looking like a guy who drives an ice cream combi really, really slow past primary schools. It has its place, I guess, (Movember, not the van driving creep) but it is not for me . You walk past a few okes in Pick ‘n Pay with a snor and you remember “Oh ja, it is Movember”. But you don’t immediately feel your self up in the bread isle while singing “My lumps, my lumps, my lumps, my lumps! My lovely manly lumps! I hope I have no lumps!” into an innocent cucumber. Nor do the guys who grow those tashes give it a second thought. Chances are slim that they actually donated a cent to the cause, which I guess was the initial intention. The just did it for the snor and for the ladies. The main message got lost somehow…

Then South Africa won the world cup and a few moments later the nation went: “Jirre, faf!” when the cameras cut to the locker room. And there he was: Faf de Klerk greeting Prince Harry  in his Satafrikan unnerpant. I mean look at this photo? It looks like a laitie in his cozzie is asking his ginger uncle for fifty cents to go buy an ice cream from the uncle in the green cap – after his mom (pictured right) – explicitly told him that he must finish his fish fingers first before he can have any desert whatsover. There is also a confused Asian guy:
And then there was this shot…
Shoulders back, ballas uit.

I’m really in two minds about what worries me more: the proximity of his sweaty foot to the team’s food or the proximity of his sweaty ballsas to the team’s food.

I hope you’re not having lunch right now.
“Jirre, Faf!”
You know what, as fokken zef as it seems, it is actually endearing and with all the attention, Faf decided to put this whole onderbroek circus to good use by starting the Faf Challenge. He is a fun guy who does fun things the Faf way. Or Faf things the fun way. The response was massive! We can’t even post Siya Kolisi’s response to the Faf challenge, because your screen isn’t wide enough.

The Faf challenge makes more sense than growing some hair on your lip: You’re already in your underpants, so there is easy access and you might as well check your balls because of the easy access.  Your ballas are right there for a check up. And we’re got a fokken summer to boot. It really is genius in its simplicity:

It only took a world cup victory,  a prince and a blonde guy in his onderbroek to kick this off. To get back to the simplicity of the whole thing – men are easily entertained, so head over to Faf’s website to see some creepy as fuck talking ballas do their testi-monials. The only problem with these videos is that there aren’t enough of them:

Head over to
the Plumlist if you want a piele weekend of entertainment. Here is our weekly top 10 to make your search for online streaming entertainment a little bit easier:
#10 The Act offers one bizarre twist of you-can’t-make-this-up after another
The truth, they say, is stranger than fiction – closely followed by “you can’t make this stuff up”. On the one hand we have a magical fantasy universe of series and movies, and on the other, true crime, which provides an endless source of rich material to feed an insatiable appetite and primal human need to slow down to gawk at the accident/disaster/tragedy.

Our randomized trailer pick of the week

Each week we take a number from 1 to 10 from our list of suggestions and put it through a randomizer to choose a trailer to show you. This week it landed on our number 5 spot, His Dark Materials!

Based on the books by Philip Pullman, this highly anticipated HBO series takes place in a rich fantasy world where humans all have animal familiars, and where an orphan uncovers a dangerous secret. Starring James McAvoy the series brings to life the Golden Compass books and the mysterious substance known as Dust.

What basically happened here, was that J.K. Rowling just got her book to the big screen first. If it we’rent for that, His Dark Materials would have been where Harry Potter is today, because both authors are equally fantastic:

Jy kan soos ‘n kleiner Jeff Bezos voel vir ‘n dag. Op ‘n seiljag. In Harties.

In Snotstories, Travel, Watkykjy Tips deur griffinRek jou bek

Kyk, Jeff Bezos is langer as die lengte van ‘n average vrou maar onder die lengte van ‘n average man, so hy is basically ‘n langerige kaalkop vrou met manlike tendencies. As ons sê jy kan soos ‘n kleiner Bezos voel vir ‘n dag, verwys nie na sy size nie maar eintlik na sy beursie se size. Maar ‘n baaaaaaaaie kleiner een! Duur sjampanje, vinnige karre, gevaarlike chicks en seiljagte  word gewoonlik met berge zak geassosieer en dis nie beskore vir die meerdeheid van ons plebs nie. “The best things in life are free” is ook net ‘n bullshit line wat een of ander armgat doos opgemaak het om homself en ons beter te laat voel oor ons finansiële omstandighede. Jy weet in jou hart van harte waarop jy ‘n miljoen rand sal blaas as dit nou in jou kamer verskyn.  Ongelukkig kos die lekker dinge in die lewe geld.
Ons kan jou nie help nie, want ons thoughts-en-prayers-kanon was gebreek in boks afgelewer, maar ons kan dinge vir jou makliker maak deur jou in te lig oor opsies. Jy gaan probably nooit ‘n seiljag of sy baba wat sy sleep (soos in die foto hierbo) kan bekostig nie, maar ons kan jou ass op een kry, so kom ons gaan vir “zef, dog stylvol”?
Jy kan byvoorbeeld vir min of meer dieselfde prys as ‘n 30 minute slot op ‘n go kart track; vir twee ure lank jou lyf fancy gaan hou op die grootste seiljag op Hartbeespoortdam. Hierdie fokken bulletjie:
Harties is nie net die olifant sanctuary of die pannekoekplek of die biker breakfast run nie. There is more to it. Die rede hoekom jy nie van die res weet nie, is omdat jy nie ‘n tjommie met ‘n boot of ‘ jet ski daar het nie. Wat van ‘n tjommie met ‘n seiljag? Wat van ‘n tjommie met die grootste een op die dam? Hier is vir jou daai tjommie: No1 Waterfront maak voorsiening vir korporatiewe geleenthede, private partytjies of net ‘n lekker dag saam met familie en vriende op die yacht, op die dam. Jy kan even die venue huur vir kleiner privaat funksies, meetings, braais, etes, konferensies, high teas of photo shoots as jou waterbene wobbly is. Dit is die perfekte venue met ‘n pragtige uitsig en ‘n atmosfeer wat intiem, stylvol en verwelkomend is.
Die yacht kan ‘n maksimum 12 passasiers (gemaklik) per rit akkomodeer. Dit maak dit makliker om te kies wie jy daar soek, want hierdie setup is vir heavy special geleenthede. Dink net aan al die lekker dinge wat jy daar kan doen?

Hier is ‘n paar voorbeelde:
Jy kan ‘n birthday party vir twee dosyn mense gooi. Twaalf gaan uit op die trip terwyl die ander twaalf solank op die wal staan om die vuur reg te kry en piele te vleg. Dan los die twee groepe mekaar af. En toe braai julle.
Jy kan special intieme celebrations op die boot gooi vir kleiner groepies. Pappa se 60ste? Dalk ‘n surprise verlowing? Dis ook die perfekte setup vir ‘n anniversary.
Maternity shoots langs die oewer? Of op die boot? Ek weet nie wat die reëls met pregnancy is nie, maar ek het al vrouens sien graft tot die babatjie se hand basically uitsteek en waai. So, not impossible then…
Maybe het jy familie of vriende van die Kaap af, of oorsese besoekers en jy wil bietjie brag met die scenery? Hoe baiekeer sien jy iemand op Facebook vra: “Waarheen kan ek my tjommies wat van Amerika  af visit vat om iets lekker naby Pretoria of Joburg te doen?”. Mense reageer amper altyd without fail met: Lion Park/Sun City/Cradly of Humankind/Cullinan. Daai is almal steeds befok, maar wat van ‘n unieke experience?

Hierdie foto is nie stock footage nie. Dis mense wat op die actual yacht in Harties was, wat so kakhappy lyk:
Daar hoef natuurlik geen special event te wees om so befokte dag uit te beplan nie. Doen dit net omdat ‘n piele idee is. Die ekonomie is so in sy fuck you in, dat meeste van ons nie eers ‘n cheap, kort, webrekertjie  vir ‘n naweek kan bekostig nie. Hierdie is die perfekte manier om at least te voel dat jy met vakansie gaan, so maybe kan jy nou bietjie meer uitsien na die Desembervakansie by die huis? Dit breek glad nie die bank nie.

Persoonlik dink ek No1 Waterfront kan effens meer charge, maar hier is hoe dinge tans werk daar:
Hulle charge R450 per persoon vir ‘n tweeuur lange trip rondom Harties. Dis ‘n moerse leisurely cruise. Daai bedrag sluit ook vonkelwyn, juice of soft drinks in, sowel as veilige parketing agter slot en grendel, vir die tydperk gedurende jou cruise. Jy kan ook jou eie cooler boks op die boot vat met jou eie booze, so daar spaar jy nog skille.

Info wat jou sal help:

  • Bring swemklere en ‘n lekker beach towel as jy wil tan.
  • Suntan lotion is fokken belangrik. Of break fluid – dis mos waarmee mense van Brakpan af mee tan.
  • Gemaklike klere soos shorts en t-shirts. ‘n Wit t-shirt laat jou altyd fokken ryk lyk – hulle verkoop dit teen R100 vir 2 by Pick ‘n Pay clothing.
  • ‘n Anorak tipe baadjie vir wanneer dit bewolk en winderig kan raak op die yacht. Weereens, wit is jou kleur, jou stylvolle fokker!
  • Deck shoes – hier is uiteindelik jou verskoning om Crocs te dra (wittes, né?)
  •  ‘n Lekker breërand hoed. Jou kriekethoed sal doen. Onthou, jou nek vat ook harde shots, so hoe kakker die hoed lyk, hoe beter is jou kanse teen die son.
  • Lip ice of Zambuck
  • Tunes – bring compilation CDs vir die boot. Die yacht het nie ‘n BlueTooth radio nie, maar as jy een van daai ouens is wat met ‘n foon en ‘n aux cable rol, is jy ook sorted.
  • ‘n Kamera, want jy gaan fokken mooi fotos kan neem!

The best things in life aren’t things. Gaan maak memories!

As jy meer info soek, check No1 Waterfront se Facebook page uit of bel vir Alex by 082 332 5761 as jy graag wil bespreek. Hy is die bra wat die bootjie bestuur in die video hieronder.

Hierdie video laat dit so fokken lekker lyk, ek het sommer weer vir hierdie Sondag bespreek vir myself en so paar tjommies:

“Sê Wie?” met Niekie van den Berg – Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Als Tos?

In Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Alles Tos? deur griffin en Chopper CharlieRek jou bek

Ons (griffin & chopper) se boek, Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Als Tos? word hierdie jaar (2019) teen Augustus se kant 11 jaar oud. Om dit te celebrate het ons besluit om alfabeties met die lys af te gaan en ‘n paar topics uit die boek te kies om weekliks hier op Watkykjy te publish, seinde dat ons die regte besit. Dis lekker kort stukkies wat jy op die kakhuis kan lees. Dink daaraan as jou klein zef kakhuisbybeltjie met pitkos vir elke dag… Wel, elke dag tot ons die boek se einde bereik.

“Sê Wie?” met Niekie van den Berg
“Sê Wie, goeiemiddag, jy praat met Niekie Van den Berg.”
Skril feedback. “Hello, is dit Niekie?”
Sug. “Ja, dis Niekie. Net vir my daai radio sagter sit, seblief!”
Jip, jys is ingeskakel by daai gesellige geselsprogram op RSG. Daardie program waarna Afrikaanse mense jaar in en jaar uit luister en steeds daarin slaag om nie by die onderwerp te bly of hulle radios af te sit voor hulle inbel nie.
Wat is hulle probleem? Is dit regtig so belangrik om hul eie stem op die radio te hoor dat hulle bereid is om die ander bejaarde luisteraars se gehoorapparate totaal te laat uitfok? Om als te kroon, dra hulle gewoonlik ook niks sinvol tot die program by nie. Nee wat, almal is mos meer geinteresseerd in ‘n ellelange staaltjie oor ‘n skoonseun of ‘n gesteun oor die regering wat nie genoeg doen nie.
Haal mooi asem voor jy daaraan dink om hulle te bel. Jy mors jou geld. En ander mense se kosbare tyd.

Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Al Tos is in 2008 geskryf en uitgegee en daar was so baie copies verkoop dat ons dit in 2009 laat herdruk het. All-in-all is daar nog net so 10 onverkoopte copies oor op aarde en ons sal teen Augustus se kant besluit wat om met hulle te maak. Kort antwoord – dis nie tans te koop nie.
