Meanwhile in Germany: They are on Fire!
June 15th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Some nations are stranger than others, and you often expect some of them to just be dull. Meanwhile in Germany they are delivering on their expected weirdness.

Can you remember the last time you were sitting on a couch with your friends and your uhm… your “lap” was on fire? Me neither.

This is however one of those occasions where I would be 100% happy to be a bit on the dull side. It might sound like a great idea when you have had a few drinks for that once in a lifetime photo, but the results for the next few days or weeks can hurt…

Meanwhile in India: most romantic photo ever
June 13th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

The Indian people are known for great cricket, great food and ridiculous Bollywood movies. However meanwhile in India there is a lot of romance as well.

Not in the traditional sense of the word as most of us understand it though. Things happen a little differently in India.

Sadly I didn’t have an Indian friend on stand by to explain this to me. I can however just see the excitement in both their eyes as this photo was taken. You peel the banana… hold it up to her mouth… and stare at the camera with lifeless eyes. This all adds up to romance

meanwhile in england: they are gathering all the uglies
June 12th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

It is funny ’cause it’s true!

There are a few who can argue the merits of this article as meanwhile in England there are a bunch of uglies running around!

You can just ask any of them to smile and you will have nightmares. Their sports heroes like Wayne Rooney wouldn’t get a role on Shrek and Boris Johnson (London mayor) is what parents scare their children with.

Meanwhile in America: Exercising
June 10th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Meanwhile in America they have realized that they need to start looking after themselves a little better. With loads of people on mobility scooters because their legs can’t support them anymore, there are some who are taking the next step to turn their lives around.

Given that first step is not a quick one… or one where you are standing up… or one where you break a sweat… you are basically just dangling your feet. Go America!

Meanwhile in Japan they have dispatched a new brand of Ghostbuster. They aren’t really armed that well, they just aim to confuse the crap out of the ghosts.

You can really see that Yuto and Yuki take their roles very serious in defending Japanese suburbs from the supernatural threats they face.

The Japanese have a huge lead on the weird stuff in this world. So just imagine how weird their ghosts are!?!?!

Meanwhile in Hungary 1
May 25th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Meanwhile in Hungary they have decided to encourage the public to really get stuck in and enjoy their hobbies. They even have a shelf for it at the stores.

I know of a couple of people here in South Africa who also enjoy the exact same hobbies…

Meanwhile in America this gentleman though he would try and look a little prettier for his trip to the local fast food place. But then he got tired. So very very tired.

It is difficult trying to look good and going out when your outfits all shrunk in the wash! I think he might have had a little lie-down because there was no blood-flow through his body anymore from the tight little number he is wearing.

The other customers are however not worried. This is the kind of thing that they are used to seeing. You’ve seen one big man in a pink tight fitting outfit lying on the floor, you’ve seen them all.

meanwhile in bolivia 1
May 21st, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Negotiation is such a tedious and boring way of settling disputes. It also doesn’t offer any spectator value at all. Meanwhile in Bolivia they have decided to sort things out in everyone’s interest.

People don’t hold grudges as they just get in a ring and pummel each other until the matter is resolved. This also makes it a lot more entertaining for friends and family.

I do like the attention they give to detail. Bolivia is a country where traditions are still important and that is why it is nice to see that they don’t let traditional dress hold them back.

Wouldn’t the world be a more fun and entertaining place if we find more creative ways of sorting out our problems? We all have beautiful minds filled with interesting ideas, so crack on and let the ideas flow!

Meanwhile in Australia 1
May 20th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

One of the few things the Australians got right apart from AC/DC and their version of Masterchef, is the way they do their shopping. While we are struggling here in South Africa with plastic bags we need to pay for, this clever Aussie lady (it hurts to say that) found a 2-in-1 solution.

She took her pet kangaroo to the shops and this meant that she had a shopping basket to boot.

Meanwhile in Australia this is probably not the strangest thing going on… we will need to revisit them a few times over the next couple of weeks to see what they are up to.

Meanwhile in Lithuania 1
May 20th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

This is a confusing one as the location is debatable. Well meanwhile in Lithuania they are having problems with their wheels… or is it Brakpan.

Meanwhile in Lithuania 1

There are however clues that it isn’t Brakpan. Let me enlighten you:
1. The colours of the panels on the car still match up
2. The car next to it has a spare wheel that could have been taken a lot quicker
3. Nobody spray-painted any references to a woman’s anatomy on the car

So even though the untrained eye might think it could be Brakpan, this isn’t and could very well be in Lithuania.

That’s your lesson for the day.
