Tickle me Friday..

I was reading the *Personal Finance this morning after breakfast, and on the back page there was a very humorous article by Zane Henry where he explains how the recession has enriched our language. I laughed so much I almost fell off my chair. Very funny guy that.

I read your journal

I am going to share a few of them with you:-

  • Blingrupt – Down-on-their-luck hip-hop artists forced to sell their jewellery to cover payments on their Hummer/Home. “S’up yo. Nickel aka The Artist Formerly known as 50c is officially blingrupt. Word.”
  • Botax – High Levies on cosmetic surgery. “My word, isn’t Sylvia looking unfortunate? Botax is hitting her forehead hard.”
  • Duppie – Depressed Urban Professional. ” that Duppie just drove off Signal Hill while screaming ‘GoodBye Cruel job market’ out of his Corsa window.”
  • Flatigue – Weariness from being forced to stay at home because going out is too expensive. “Ugh. If only I could afford to go to the movies so I could get over this flatigue.”
  • Insource – The opposite of outsource. “I’ve insourced some of our household services. the eldest boy does the carpentry, my little girl does the panel-beating and the baby boy does the plumbing. Little Darlings.”
  • Slayoff – A particularly brutal firing. “Shame. Piet still hasn’t recovered from his slayoff. On the plus side, he’s getting better at washing my windscreen at the traffic lights.”

There are more but I think you should go buy your own copy of the Personal Finance for them, you may learn a thing or two about what emerging markets have to offer you.. šŸ˜‰

Have a fabulously chill and happy weekend and I will see you all on Monday!
