In another case of men just being men, a local lad found himself on the wrong end of fatherhood after he bought his newborn baby the wrong formula despite receiving clear instructions on which one to get from his baby momma.

A Twitter user, @DonknowMcgrego, took to the bird app to put the baby daddy's hilarious 'blonde moment' on blast, much to the funny bone of Mzansians, who wasted no time in making the man at the centre of the blunder the butt of the joke.

There was no doubting the aptness of the caption as one look at the screenshot and image shared put this into clear perspective. In the first image, a short WhatsApp exchange is had between the lovebirds on the need to buy more formula as they were in short supply.

The dude cheerfully commits to getting it on his way back from his grind the next day but is swiftly reminded of the only kind he ought to buy. This is followed up with a sharp "okay" from him, confirming he understands the instruction.

But lo and behold, the other image shows that instead of the Nan 1 he agreed to get, he purchased a completely out of the question Nan 3 tin. This hilarity left Saffas falling off their seats and gasping for air as they tried to make sense of how the error could be made when there were texts to go back on.

Competency of men questioned

Whatever the reason for the silliness, Briefly News jumped deep into the comments section to bring readers all the amused reactions to the post.

"Lol. I once told baby daddy to buy Danone's for the little one and he bought Plain yoghurt Danone's. Nigga bought 4 trays."

@sisi_wangempela said:

"I have learned that if you are sending a man to buy something for you first send him a picture of it and you won't be disappointed."

@philani_donald added:

"What kind of a man doesn't know how to read or ask someone from the store or yet show them the WhatsApp text?"

Hilarious responses to finding out bae's preggo

Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that Mzansians are no strangers when it comes to the art of problem-solving.

So, when Twitter user Mitchelle Karoro (@mitchellekaroro) presented South Africa with a challenge, locals banded together to address the serious matter once and for all. "'Babe I’m pregnant'. Reply as a South African boyfriend," raced through the minds of many Saffas.

With wit, humour and a few memes, Mzansi made quick work of the question, offering a stream of hilarious and perhaps risky responses to those with partners who could see their solutions.

Some peeps decided to approach the problem with scepticism and distrust. Needing more information, the question, "Who is the father?" seemed like a great place to start unpacking this challenge.
