Wot's a shoo?

I know I am always harping on about the searches that lead people to my blog, but it’s not my fault that people are so ceaselessly daft.

The huge majority of people come to my blog hunting for naked South African men, as I mentioned here.

The latest question the internet is asking Dr Po is:

Do South Africans need shoes?

Well, if you pay any attention to my blog, the answer would be a definite NO. No clothes, no shoes, no electricity. No elephants on the streets.

But I wouldn’t want to mislead the tourists, so


The electricity is back online. Can’t do anything about the elephants though.

Look, you should be glad. No worrying about what to wear. You can pack light. All the more space in your luggage for the 2 metre carved giraffe you have your heart set on, I just know you do.

Just bring lots of sunscreen for the more sensitive areas. And be warned, if you visit Cape Town, the water is freezing. You might want to consider the effects of shrinkage upon your ego.

P.S. this is another search that led someone to my blog:

nuked men in the sea

How very unfortunate for them, must have been a bit ow-y, I hope they float?

    Actually I think they'll find shoes useful… Will stop them getting splinters in the trek across the wilderness from city to city. Since we don't have roads. Or cars.

    That CT water IS cold…I remember that much…I once heard a story about a South African who went to a 1st world country (I won't say which, but the abbreviated version of the name includes a U, an S and a vowel… :D )and was asked about how they reacted to (in the eyes of the locals) their first encounter with an escalator…Some people can be so unbelievably dumb…

    Ches: yeah, whats with the desire for seamonkey porn, sies!Gillian: I like the image of the nuked men bobbing in the sea ;)QCC: good point, but South Africans don't need them cos they have soles of STEEL, yeah baby. Tamara: aha, good semantical point. What is a normal South African though, cos we are all mental in my opinion. Do you wear shoooos Tamara?Luke: yeah I've heard stories of people asking if we need help operating the loo! haha.

    Don't talk to me about bloody elephants on the roads. 2 bloody hours to work on Thursday after one got trapped in Koeberg Interchange. Grrrr.It's actually THE LAW that someone on every flight from SA to Europe must bring a bubble-wrapped carved giraffe on board.

    EEbEE: shudder. The thought. Bad seamonkey. Baaaaaad.6000:??? Was it a truck-shaped elephant?As to the giraffe thing, teehee, I know. But it is not legislative law, it is the law of nature. Foreigner see wooden giraffe, foreigner want ridiculous-sized giraffe that is impossible to take on flights.Hmm, I wonder if this law of nature will have any effect on me on my next visit, since I have been away for a while. Well, I do love giraffes…

    Where do all the giant giraffe go? I've been overseas a bunch of times, and never seen one in someones home. Do people come to their senses once they stop being 'foreigners' and turn them into pencils?

    Damaria: good, no naughty seamonkey thoughts :)Janet: hi there, oh no that is bad news I though California would have warm water! I always dream of California as my kind of utopia, warm, dry, beautiful. But the question is, where did you go in Cape Town? Cos the Llandudno water makes my feet fall off.PAula: I love going barefoot too. Specially on beach sand, it feels amazing!Helen: hmmm, very good question. I should do a questionairre. Actually I seen a few giraffes in homes in SA. But not here. MAybe I should change that!

    No, Po. I wear shoes. The only shooos I use are when Julyas (or the damn peacock that keeps me awake) is in my vicinity.
