Hey Obed, Howzit.

Hey Obed, howzit. I hope all is well with Boris & Brenda. (At first I thought it was cheeky of Private Eye to call her majesty “Brenda”, but the moniker has grown on me.)Anyway, I bet you guys aren’t having half as much fun in London as we are back home. Ah, eThekwini, though I opine our many shortcomings, at least we have an appreciation for the finer things in life. Of course, this refinement is not widely shared, especially by those miserable runts in the opposition parties. They really are a dour bunch of Mother Grundies.They have objected...

Dear Obed: Im Back

Hey Obed, howzit boet. My hat, it has been too long. Thank you for your emails, postcards and the lovely tea from Harrods (it must have cost a quid or two).
