The Simpsons have been hiding a religious agenda, apparently. Sunday’s edition of L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s daily broadsheet, declared that ”Not many people know it, and he does everything he can to hide it. But it’s true, Homer J. Simpson is Catholic.” I guess drawing conclusions from nonexistent evidence isn’t entirely new to the region.
At a glittering function, coincidentally held at Seth’s Johannesburg residence, The Westcliff Hotel, GQ last night hosted the Best Dressed Men In SA Awards. And what an evening it was, as the who’s who of South African fashionati came out to play. Even more exciting was the fact that your very own Seth Rotherham walked away with the top honours! But that wasn’t the spiciest part of the evening..

Lyrical wordsmith, voice of a generation and gay fish, Kanye West has confirmed on Twitter that the cover art for his upcoming album has mercifully been banned. Although at least one rapper has presumably described the cover as “the greatest album artwork of all time. OF ALL TIME!”
Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse shouldn’t be allowed in the same room, let alone allowed to produce comedy together. It’s just to much of genius. And what happens then is something is so funny it becomes dangerous. It puts people’s lives in danger, because it could make their heads explode. Like this video about Parking Patewayo.

A certain calm has once again descended upon Cape Town, and anyone who attended this year’s Rocking the Daisies festival will agree that the same aura was felt in and around the town of Darling. It’s little wonder we received this latest TBG Sighting.
The child – born in 1981 – who heads up the ANC Youth League has been described in this weekend’s Sunday Times as a ‘Village Idiot.’ Hilarious! This after he “called the 2010 Fifa World Cup an “imperialist activity” which brought people to SA for the purpose of exploitation,” when welcoming the organising committee of the 17th World Festival for Youth and Students.” But it’s not a discussion of this utterance that I wish to cover here..

There seems to be a lot of people still addicted to phone calls of late – desperately wanting to cover detail which has/could’ve been discussed and confirmed in email. So here we are – stuck between people who have progressed, and others who have replaced the phone cord with what seems to be an invisible umbilical cord. Which brings us to the new 2oceansvibe website – listen to this..
While many sportsmen spend their time in the run up to a major event practicing, James Hunt spent the 2 weeks prior to his famed 1976 win in Japan on a “round-the-clock alcohol, cannabis and cocaine binge”.
You know that feeling when you get into the car after having a few too many? Don’t deny it, you know you have done it. You turn the corner and wham, there’s a road block! There is no adrenalin quite like that. So would it help if they did away with the drunk-driving laws?

The property is valued at a cool six-point-eight-billion-rand, which, experts agree, is roughly one metric shit-ton of cash.
Let’s have a quick look at the highlights.
Ed Chamberlin is Sky Sports’ elite football presenter. That’s right, he’s a pretty big name on British telly.

We chat to him about the Currie Cup, the Liverpool shenanigans, and the state of English rugby, live on 2oceansvibe Radio.

In a story with the headline I’ve waited my whole life to write, the future Mr Katy Perry has been referred to as “pointless” by one of Britain’s most celebrated talk show hosts and, perhaps most crushingly, had his talents compared to those of an acting dog.
There was much excitement the other day after we posted a picture of the man who is affectionately known as ‘Papa Smurf.’ He was dominating Rocking The Daisies at the time, and since then we have received a deluge of emails and pics.
