“Adding to the cabbage patch cause it looks like you swallowed a watermelon…”

South African slang is really interesting to me.  It comes from all different cultures and locations and can change within a matter of miles.

“We have to leave now.  Not now-now, or just now.  Now.

Did you actually scheme that this was the time for a saamie? What a clutch plate.  Get the bakkie and dont run the red robot this time and watch out for the donga’s!”

We have to leave immediately, right this second.  How can you think this is the time to eat a sandwich you idiot.  Get the truck, but this time don’t drive through the red traffic light and keep an eye out for potholes

Keeping it pretty ‘simple’ since you would be really hard pressed to find someone who actually over does it  – unless his name is Trevor Noah.
