Love him or hate him, but mostly hate him, Sepp Blatter was the lucky recipient of the Order of the Companions of OR Tambo, bestowed upon his reverend person by the magnanimous nation of South Africa.
Well, alright then. You diplomats brown nose each other in whichever way you prefer.
But, oh sweet heavens, how were we so lucky to deserve this?
Wikipedia vandals and a lazy South African presidency clerk have unwittingly conspired to officially list Sepp Blatter as “dickhead”.
I’ll tell you how.
This is a zoomed version of the pic above, which is a screengrab from the SA Presidency website.
You notice Sepp’s name? “Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter”?
The gag might not be immediately obvious, but our UK vibers will most certainly be gasping by now.
Bellend, as some of you will no doubt know, is the urban UK slang for the tip of a penis, in other words, a dickhead.
So what? That’s just his name. An unfortunate coincidence, and not really funny.
Well, no. It’s not his real name. As local tech website, MemeBurn reports, the word “Bellend” was inserted into Blatter’s Wikipedia page by vandals, like so:
Since the mistake was flagged, Blatter’s Wiki page has been protected, and the error has disappeared off of the SA Presidency page.
Still, one can hope and dream that “Bellend Blatter” has already been engraved into a plaque or medal of some kind.
Dickheads can only dream.
