A taxing question


Dewi Morris: Road Tax?

The sight of then South African president Nelson Mandela presenting Springbok captain Francois Pienaar with the Webb Ellis Cup is one of the most defining images of the 20th Century, never mind the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

However the year before Mandela had met the touring England team, an occasion which provided Nobok legend Jason Leonard with a tale that still brings a smile to his face more than a decade later.

“Dewi Morris was a bit nervous meeting Nelson Mandela in 1994 and I was standing next to him,” recalled Leonard.

“We were told that we could actually ask Nelson Mandela a question and Dewi got so nervous about what he had to ask him, I mean he was literally shaking.

“And he was shaking Nelson Mandela’s hand and he literally just said, “um, um, um do you have road tax over here?”

“He asks the most important man of the 20th Century if he has road tax over there and I’m in tears.

Ja......could've been worse......

"Mr.Mandela, what was the food like in prison?"...etc...

"How did you survive 20 years without sex?"
 
Ah StP



Glad to see you could make it.


What about telling us how to prepare a traditional Russian dish


I.e. for those of us who frequent Teazers, how do we manage to REALLY chat up those Russian / Bellorussian / Ukrainian dollies
 
Didn't Mandela and co play rugby to keep from being bored?


I think I read that in his book. Apparently when the old guys got there they played rugby as a sport to keep busy.


Later on when the guys from the 70's started coming in, they changed to soccer.
 
Hello DavidS

You're a happily married man.....you don't want that sort of info.

Needless to say, they're always very impressed with foreigners who can speak some sort of Russian.

A sence of humor....they like that, Russian okes are pretty dull.

And of course, at a place like Teazers, tipping well would make you very popular.

As for my personal claim to fame....I dated an exotic dancer in Moscow for a bit.
