Breaking news: Luke Watson Teased!

Everyone’s favourite rugby player, people’s hero Luke Watson, has allegedly been teased by his team mates. Watson showed his true leadership material and general all-round niceness by laughing off the incident and refusing to press charges.

The alleged teasing allegedly took place in an alleged suburb of the alleged city of Cape Town, after some moron allegedly skipped a red light and bashed into Watson’s designer black BMW. There was considerable damage to the left wing of Watson’s vehicle, although the popular flanker himself was unhurt.

Suggestions that the offending motorist lost control of his vehicle due to an unexpected wave of nausea and fit of vomiting have been dismissed as nothing but seditious mischief.

Some of Watson’s teammates – I’m not going to point any fingers, but it was probably those ones of them that don’t can like to speaks Ingels by da house if you knows what I are mean – then allegedly stopped at the scene and hurled abuse, insults, tackle bags and the like at Comrade Watson, all allegedly in the name of “gentle ribbing”. We all know the truth, of course.

I’m just glad that Luke has decided to be the bigger man here. Allegedly.

  • Hey jude, dont make it bad.
    Take a sad song and make it better.
    Remember to let her into your heart,
    Then you can start to make it better.

    Hey jude, dont be afraid.
    You were made to go out and get her.
    The minute you let her under your skin,
    Then you begin to make it better.

    And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
    Dont carry the world upon your shoulders.
    For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
    By making his world a little colder.

    Hey jude, dont let me down.
    You have found her, now go and get her.
    Remember to let her into your heart,
    Then you can start to make it better.

    So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
    Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
    And dont you know that its just you, hey jude, youll do,
    The movement you need is on your shoulder.

    Hey jude, dont make it bad.
    Take a sad song and make it better.
    Remember to let her under your skin,
    Then youll begin to make it
    Better better better better better better, oh.

    Na na na na na ,na na na, hey jude…

    I was gonna edit that – but I’m Legal-dumb… :smile:

  • Lennon explained the origins of this song in his 1980 Playboy interview: “The first line was written on one acid trip one weekend. The second line was written on the next acid trip the next weekend, and it was filled in after I met Yoko. Part of it was putting down Hare Krishna. All these people were going on about Hare Krishna, Allen Ginsberg in particular. The reference to ‘Element’ry penguin’ is the elementary, naive attitude of going around chanting, ‘Hare Krishna,’ or putting all your faith in any one idol. I was writing obscurely, a la Dylan, in those days.”

    Well to me it is not entertaining…it is very repetitive and does not take any skill and there is not “good/enjoyable” sound coming through….

    And then further 9 out of 10 rap songs are very destructive/abusive/inhumane and encourages that behaviour…

    Exactly the same goes for metal (although the variation in metal is greater…which is the only difference)…

  • Rap is probably too raw for some of the aged palates here.

    Hell, even Shakespeare’s work’s were considered “common” at the time; The Globe was very much a low brow theatre back then.

    There are times when only rap can express the way I feel, and some might be surprised to learn that Rock & Roll is merely an off-shoot from R&B anyway…

    You are mistaken there – you are comparing it to urban R&B – R&B is older and more complex than that of which you are aware.

    Anyway, its not my intention to change anybody’s taste in music – personal preference is your right. I was just sharing my opinion.

    Agreed it surely is different…however rock is still uniquely characterized by the use of electric guitars…the strong rhythm and possibly the offbeat accent might be similar…but I doubt that it sounded the same (maybe the original rock did!??!)…current form…neither sound anything alike…

    T’was – watching him swear was weird. I also discovered Tupac’s poetry via him as well.

    The thing about music is that we enjoy what we can relate to – preference is often more a matter of acclimatization than quality.

    Of course much of the appeal of R&B is in the dancing, which makes it slightly less appealing to our more rhythmically-challenged bretheren. :lol:

  • Don’t really know what the convicts are so happy about.

    This was a dead rubber & we were without our most valuable player in the 1st innings & he batted with a broken hand in the 2nd.

    So effectively they only had to take 9 wickets in the 1st innings & the wicket of a cripple in the 2nd in a meaningless match (in terms of the series result) to win after winning the toss on a pitch full of cracks.

    Couldn’t have made it easier for them. :twisted:

  • @klempie (Comment 276) : In a test you need an attacking spinner not just one to reduce the run rate. We had a couple that can slow the run rate in ODI’s , but we haven’t had a spinner that consistently takes wickets in a test ala Warne, Muri , Harbajan Singh.
    We haven’y had a spinner in test that are ‘feared’ by the opposition

  • Didn’t we have a bowler similar to Muri who was deemed a chucker by the ICC?

  • @Pokkel (Comment 279) : Your definition of decent is different to mine then. What you’ve described there are great spinners. Boj, Symcox and Adams were “decent”.

  • @McLovin (Comment 281) : And he chucks well. I always wondered how Muri got away with his chucking. He definately seems to chuck more that Johan Botha. If you get away with it I suppose it’s legal.

    Only really top spinner has ever produced – ironically held a large number of bowling records in a country where seam is king.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 291) :
    Off-spinner if I remember correctly – might have been a leftie though.

    Used to use flight, bounce and guile, like Kumble.

    I like the look of Thandi Tshabalala – he turns it a lot, but is still very raw – maybe one day.

    Tahir can also hit a long ball.
