The Big Book of South African Cliches, Stereotypes and Other Dingamalietjies
By

Rating
Ja well no fine is, well, ja, like a book, bru. About South Africa, nogal - a.k.a. Sefrica, a.k.a. Mzansi fo' sho' - and how it all fits together, you check. Sharp sharp, wena...But it's not just about slang and Safricanisms; it's also about our people, places, things, brands, food, habits, sport, clothes, culture and politics. It's about all the wonderful (and flippen annoying) little things that make up the country we live in, from the legal requirements of boerewors (not braai wors!) to the psychological explanation for why watching Carte Blanche on a Sunday night is bad for your health. In short, it's a (funny, entertaining, enlightening, irreverent) A-Z guide to South Africa through cliches, stereotypes and other dingamalietjies.
