Thanks to that hysterically funny picture, I'm in for R500.00

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

TOTAL FOR THE MANKINI EFFECT R 3700 And a possible R 200 more if Cheetah gets drunk enough ;)
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

In keeping with the Forum you have to remember that this is actually YELLOW Mankini.

Aparrently it was seen at a previous cricket (drapped over a chair and not on a body). \
Most people did not see it because they mistook it for dental floss... :twisted:

Presume that you would be batting Baffers? If so, can the Angels nominate a fast bowler to face you?????? :twisted: (Like Dale Steyn...... :twisted: )
