    Laat my dink aan wat een van my lektors op Tuks my ons vertel het van die bekende oud-generaal wat in vanmeleŽ dae in 'n militÍre strategiese sessie gesit het, terwyl almal hulle stemme dik maak en klomp akronieme rondgooi. Na 'n uur se bespreking staan hy op (hy het op die stadium nog nie 'n woord ge-uiter nie), en skryf in groot letters op die witbord:

    H.O.M.K.A.

    Hy gaan sit weer. Almal is te skrikkerig om te vra, maar na 'n paar minute vra 'n jong offisier vir die generaal: "Generaal, askuus, maar waarvoor staan HOMKA?"

    Generaal: "Maklik. Hou Op Met K*c Afkortings!"

    Has anyone mentioned FUBAR??

    FUBAR - F**ked Up Beyond Any Recognition

    Eg. "That Land Rover was FUBAR!" or "At the party last night, Johnnie got FUBAR."

    Dankie Lekrom! Ek stem saam met die general!

    Default Africa Trip

    Hi There,
    want to drive thru Namibia, Caprivi, Zambia, Malawi, and then to the Creator. Looking for a good vehicle to do this. I have a 2007 Ford ranger 4.0 Super Cab 4x4 but I think it is too heavy on juice and will cost me a fortune. Any advice out there what I can buy for less than R150000?

    Welcome here!
    Question - do you mean to go to Malawi and then drive into the lake? How do you propose driving "to the Creator"?

    LOL, it just shows the person typed his post in word and copied it into the forum.. some of the residual formatting left over makes this ''acronym''..
