South Africans can't seem to get over an image posted by Twitter user @iam_donii of a young learner lugging a travel suitcase through class. The red suitcase, which is almost half the height of the student when placed upright, may just be the easiest way for the pupil to transport their workbooks around school.

Unfortunately for the young child, he seems to be the only one with a suitcase. The reaction of Saffas can be summed up clearly by the image of the teacher holding his head in the background.

Sushi shisanyama has Mzansi rolling over with laughter: “Just get meat next time"

In other funny news, Briefly News previously reported that if there is one thing most Mzansi peeps love, it’s a good shisanyama (braai meat). However, one social media user shared one of a different kind.

Taking to Twitter, @_Bongani_Eddie shared a post about his friend who went to a shisanyama spot that had sushi on offer and it was interesting, to say the least. The man said he was in tears of laughter for about 40 minutes.

Online users could not help but laugh at the 'sushi shisanyama', calling it quite the disaster. Some peeps even judged the friend for thinking it was a good idea to buy the seafood dish from a kasi spot.
