"It's called "Grease the pole" or "greasy pole" traditional game back in Bazaar days in Trinidad also, was fun, big prizes back then, ashamed who never heard of it, stop blaming rum."

Zentao Shemelia injected some logic and asked:

Did anyone try slowly walking up it while maintaining their balance with steady breathing?No? Okay then....just keep slamming your nuts at 8mph."

Koreni Muremi said:

"You don't even have kids yet and you are attempting this nonsense!"

Elizabeth Mijo Heaven joking said:

"Put Black Label beer and give Namibian or South African that opportunity… just a minor whirlwind and everything is gone."

Hebanna: Man accidentally blows R5 000 rent money on drinks, SA left in stitches

In another baffling, though funny story about men and their antics, Briefly News reported that a local man had SA laughing after accidentally blowing all his rent money over the long weekend. The excited man spent a whopping R5 000 on booze alone and though he said he could not remember drinking that much, his bank account balance may certainly be jogging a few memories.

Heading online, Twitter user @LenyoraBillium said he should have known something was up when he had way too much cash in his account last weekend. he captioned the post tearily:

""Hebanna I thought I have money when I blew R5 000 over the weekend, kanti I didn’t pay rent."

In ultimate desperation, the young spender thought he might be able to ask the restaurant for his money back. Naturally, Mzansi found the suggestion of this hilarious.
