Uit sy kassie



I was more than amused the other day when I walked past this little gem.
The beautiful ambiguity of it is enough to bring a tear to my eye.

And look how happy he is. Pulling at his tie, cracking his makeup, upsetting his toupe -
Hy's net so MAL! Is dit omdat hy uit sy kassie is? Ag genugtig Riaan, ons is so bly dat jy nou lekker saam kan speel.

Anyway. To round this all off, the website says this of their cover:

"Nie net is Riaan ‘n ikoon van Afrikaanse televisie nie – hy word deesdae gereken as Suid-Afrika se eie Chuck Norris."

So he's out the closet AND he's the new Chuck. Am I the only one that thinks the editor of should be fired?

"Riaan Cruywagen will never die. His soul gets transferred to another identical body via various arcane rituals and current nano-technology thrice fortnightly. "

everything in life is a balance. fire to water, dark to light...riaan to chuck.

it all makes perfect sense to me.

I think the editor should be fired for making Insig look like Die Huisgenoot.

Ek dink dit lyk soos Die Keur van die 80's.

Was Die Keur van die 80s nie omtrent tussen die Huisgenoot en die Scope nie?

I think it needs to be pointed out that "Riaan uit sy kassie", does not mean he jumped the closet in THAT sense. Kassie is also an Afrikaans word for television or for one's superego - here it is a play on those two meanings. I am unsure whether Riaan Cruywagen is homosexual of orientation - he certainly is not in practice.

well, that was the beauty of it prof...the ambiguity, if you will, about that little line...

Prof, hoe kan jy so seker wees hy is dit nie in praktyk nie? Nie dat ek seker is hy is nie, dis net dat jy baie seker klink.
