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

TOTAL FOR THE MANKINI EFFECT R 2200

Come on PNF :) At the least let us have a little pledge here. Your chances of actually having to wear the mankini is directly opositely apposed to your pledge...

IE: If you don't donate some money then your chances of actually having to wear it increases exponentially.

WHAT? Me in a mankini? It will cause a natural disaster. The baboons will laugh so much that they will fall out off the trees. The hippos will drown because they will not be able to close their mouths as a result of all the laughter. Rather give me the job as chief coolbox custodian and liquor dispenser.

Suppose the fine print will say that you need to sample what you dispense?

Of course!!. What will happen if I give someone a 'dop' which has gone off because of the fierce African heat? They will sue me until I have to break open my last piggy bank.
