Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime
Fokkit peeps, what the blerrie pixelated fuck is going on with the Proteas, hey? First England reminded us about the meaning of the word “skaam”, then Bangla bliksemmed our ears red in the second game and in the third game, India rolled up the welcome mat and took it to their locker room. At first glance our final score against India looks decent (because it looks like a 3 run loss) but when you look closer and take off the bloody plasters it is actually a groot gemors. They annihilated us by 6 wickets and two-and-a-half overs to spare. Eina! The only silver lining to this poop cloud is that South Africa has at least won the toss 3 times in a row. But… to play tos doesn’t help, okes.

The World Cup Cricket dream for the Proteas is unfortunately shattered. People are now trying to stay positive and talking about how we just need to win the next six games. Are you high? That only get’s us to the choke-chain round, boet. We need eight victories in a row to take that cup home. I really hope we do. I will be ecstatic. Thoughts and prayers then?

But like the title suggests, we’re not here to talk cricket. Nor are we here to talk rugby. Sorry that I cat-fished you. Truthfully, I have no fucking clue as to what is going on in any form of rugby on our planet. I gave my last fuck that I had to someone a while ago and I think that person lost it as well. You see? you give one fuck…
This morning a friend chatted to me and told me that the Bulls drew for the second time. So I googled “Super 14 rugby” and “Super 15 rugby” came up as a result. Plus I saw that we’re already in week 17 of 18. So… all the clues, none of it.

I’m a Lions supporter, anyway. One rugby player less than a full team, to be precise. Check, 14 actual lions escaped from the Kruger Park yesterday and people living in and around Phalaborwa have been warned to be super careful. The Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism has confirmed sightings of the pride near the Foskor mine, which is more or less 5km south of Phallas (that’s what I would call Phalaborwa if I had to live there).

I dig how people always give human qualities to animals – They escaped!
*pulls up shoulders, makes big jazz hands gesture and big scary eyes*
Not a fuck did the Lions escape from anywhere, man! They were just walking around and chilling (fok, now I am doing the same thing). They didn’t hatch a hair-brained scheme while playing ‘go fish’ on a big fat flat rock and smoking cigars one arwie in the sun.
“Yo, Cecil. Phallas se fokken ballas, bru! Let’s blow this boring mining town, ek sê. Do you have any fours?”
“I don’t know, Simba. Like, where would we go, bru? *takes drag from cigar*  The weather is tit here. Oh… no fours. Go fish…”

But don’t stress, Phalaborwanonions – according to a spokesperson from the Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (really, guys… that’s a fokken long name) there is no immediate danger. The lions are in a contained area and under constant surveillance, which would effectively mitigate any surprise attack.

So vat ‘n chill pill en relax. Sommer stay indoors and see if you can klap our entire top 10 which we selected from this week’s pick from The Plumlist:

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, Taking snow to Iceland: the making of Fortitude. Just take a look at this description: Fortitude is a place like nowhere else. Although surrounded by the savage beauty of the Arctic landscape, Fortitude is one of the safest towns on earth. There has never been a violent crime here. Until now.

Yiiiiiiikes!!!!!
