Do you actually realise the implications of this whole thing. I mean the mankini is one thing.

BUT

What if the Mankini wearer drops something and bends to pick it up and you are on the wrong side of the bend. What then. you might come out of the whole thing with a nervous twitch that you never had before you had to witness this?

:hmz: Perhaps all spectators should be issued with dark glasses - VERY dark glasses. Oh! and shouldn't there be a "Health" warning? e.g: Those with Pace-makers and Pregnant Ladies must report to the Umpire before the game starts for a briefing on what may happen during the course of this cricket match.

:big_eyes: :D :D

As well as the medical team. Cause if the poor bloke who wears the darn thing, gets bowled in the " you know", atleast he'll know who will be putting ice on. Hopefully we can organise a young blonde and very attractive medic LADY!

The SANParks Acting Head of Communications, Mr. Reynold Thakhuli has pledged to donate R400 on behalf of his two daughters (R200ea)

So I guess the total has now increased by another R400 :clap:

:hmz: Wonder who will be wearing the Mankini :lol:

Lesego you should get the other HO and KNP guys to follow Rey's example ;)

I am not sure if the sight of the mankini is to much for any one human being but it's for an awesome cause :)
