Pik’n our Noseby Brandon Edmonds / 20.08.2009
Pik from ‘Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry & Paul’, circa 2007
Racist South Africans. We’re comedy archetypes by now. Along with Germans, angry Muslims and camera-toting Japanese. Thanks to the several hundred thousand South African expats doing the economic conscription thing in London, we’re stereotypes. In this recent BBC comedy series, with the great Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, there’s an appalling South African emigre, a gym instructor living in London, called Pik. You can find him on Youtube.
He’ll tell you about throwing up on himself after a boozy late night curry. He’ll wink salaciously while stretching the hamstrings of an unsuspecting minx. Pik is clueless, repulsive and hilarious. Uncannily close to the bone.
But perfectly understandable. The UK has finally kicked back at the massive influx of local whites fleeing affirmative action and SA is the next Zimbabwe fantasies. South Africans over there are numerous enough to impact local politics. Changing the face of neighbourhoods. Maintaining an incestuous local circuit for locals involving biltong, boerewors, braais, sport and drunken singalongs. With Pik, the Brits kicked back hard!
Here’s another one.
And one more kick in the teeth.
