Ag ou Baffers, thats a great Idea. I''ll put in R300, the extra 100 is a bribe so I don't have to wear the thing :)

See here for background

Perhaps we can raise enough funds to convince someone to actually wear it (the elusive mankini) ;)
Then we donate the money to the rhino war and we call it "The mankini effect"

Common! Who's in? Anyone wanna put down some money that we will see that mankini?

So we have the following "pledges" that the mankini will be there:
Baffers R 200
DavenJan R 200
DinkyBird R 200
Spargish R 150
Crested Val R 200
Dylan R 50
GerhardDB R 200
Sparrow R 200
RichardJ R 200
CarolG R 200
Heskie R 200
Hilda R 200
Shusin R 200
Pardus R 200
PNF R 200 (Only if Cheetah is "THE MAN!")
Phillip1 R 200
Porridge R 500
JenB R 200
MM R 200
Fishbowl R 500
Spock R 500

TOTAL FOR THE MANKINI EFFECT R 4700 And a possible R 200 more if Cheetah gets drunk enough ;)

Bwahahaha, Baffers, only on Saturdays after 23:00 when I'm really drunk, besides we don't want to scare the children :)

What? To bat in that thing without a 'box' would be suicidal and I don't think a box will fit securely in there. Eina, organize the St John's ambulance (or as the late Gerhard Viviers called them 'die pyn polisie') to be present.
