DAG DAG!

Rook is SLEG, geen argument.

Altyd ironies vir my is die groot geraas om mense te maak ophou rook maar in dieselfde asem as mens deesdae in die Kaap se middedorp inry rook self die nie-rokers n paar sigarette met die dat die lugbesoedeling so erg is. Dan praat ons nie eens van daai fabriek as mens Blouberg toe ry nie. Die omringende bevolking ly aan allerlei longverwante probleme sonder dat hul n keuse het

Ja ja ek weet ek is nou stroomop

Ek kan dus met trots aankondig dat die carbon monoxide in my bloedstroom die afgelope agt ure gehalveer is.
