Koos and Japie from Bloemfontein were up in Joburg for the rugby when they saw this sign on a shop window:
Suits R20.00 each
Shirts R10.00 each
Trousers R8.00 per pair
Koos says to his pal. "Hey Japie, Look! We could buy a whole load of those clothes, and when we get back to the Bloem, we could resell them and make us a blerry fortune!"
"Now listen boet, when we go into the shop you keep your mouth shut, hey!
Just let me do all the talking and wheeling and dealing stuff, 'cause if they hear your accent, they might try to rip us off. I'll be giving them my best Vaalie accent so they think we're locals."
They go in and Koos says, "Excuse me sir, I'll take 50 of your finest suits at R20.00 each, 100 shirts at R10.00 each, and 50 pairs of your trousers at R8.00 each. I will be paying in cash, and taking those items with me today, if you don't mind."
The owner of the shop interrupts, "You guys are from the Free State , aren't you?"
"Errr....ja" says Koos, "how come you know?"
The owner says, "This is the dry-cleaners!"
