THE CREATION
In the beginning God created day and night. He created day for rugby matches, going to the beach and braais. He created night for going jolling, sleeping and braais. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Second Day. 

On the Second Day God created water - for surfing, swimming and braais on the beach. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Third Day. 

On the Third Day God created the Earth to bring forth plants - to provide tobacco, malt and yeast for beer and wood for braais. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Fourth Day. 

On the Fourth Day God created animals and crustaceans for chops, boerewors, steak and prawns for braais. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Fifth Day. 

On the Fifth day God created an oke - to go to the rugby, enjoy the beach, drink the beer and eat the meat and prawns at braais. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Sixth Day. 

On the Sixth Day God saw that this oke was lonely and needed someone to go to the rugby, surf, drink beer, eat and stand around the braai with. So God created buddies, and God saw that they were good okes. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came and it was the Seventh Day.

On the Seventh Day God saw that the okes were tired and needed a rest. So God created Chicks - to clean the house, bear children, wash, cook and Clean the braai. 

Evening came and it was the end of the Seventh day. God sighed, looked around at the twinkling braais, heard the hiss of opening beer cans and the raucous laughter of all the okes and chicks, smelled the aroma of grilled chops and sizzling prawns, and God saw that it was not just good, it was better than that, it was damn good .......IT WAS SOUTH AFRICA!!!!
