Online racist hatemongers took time off their ANC hating afternoons yesterday to join in the mocking of a story that was off the Sunday Sun about American wannabe T-bo Touch was fined $75 for cooking tripe and stinking up a block of flat in New York City. Presumably he's there to top up his dodgy American accent that, as you can hear in the clip below, is all over the place.
The elephant in the room, of course, is nobody seems to be asking how the newspaper found out about his misfortune. None of the websites that followed up seem to have enquired either; they were just too happy to harvest the clicks they got as a result of copying and pasting the Sunday Sun story. It's not as if the NYC police are going to call a tabloid in South Africa and tell them that some guy is cooking something that smells very bad so one can only surmise that either he or someone in his camp called the newspaper, in which case it's not really news.

But as your boy puts it, it's all about patriotism. The accent may elude him but he seems to have taken to their jingoism like a duck to water.
Here's a promo idea for his abysmal radio show: "your boy's in the building, and the odour preceds him."
