Ze pre-Vorld Cup appraisal
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been telling South Africans where their World Cup preparations are up to, and as usual it is pure comedy gold. Football’s beloved leader begins by telling the gathered subordinates that the main problem is the surprising popularity in the world’s biggest sporting event, which has left an unforseen shortfall of accommodation. For this he prescribes a healthy dose of boats.
Blatter then describes the different noises football lovers can expect to hear in South Africa and, helpfully demonstrates these noises (2mins 5secs to 2mins 25secs is a joy to behold). And, not one for racial stereotypes, he then goes on to bemoan African work ethic and laziness, promising “another solution in my pocket if you don’t work”. Easy tiger.
