DLP 011 EC

On a day when the South African Weather Service warned of a heat wave and the danger of runaway fires, the driver of this Ford Mondeo, registration plate DLP 011 EC – from the self-named “Friendly Province” – decided it was a good day to drop his lit cigarette butt out of the window.

Obviously, I beg to differ.
I’m anti-smoking, anti-littering, anti-Ford Mondeo and – thanks to the actions of this twat – anti-Eastern Cape today as well.

If you’re reading this Mr DLP 011 EC, as you surely will be, then tremble, for I have reported you to the infamous Cape Town Stompie Hotline on 021 424 7715. I gave them your licence plate details, a description of your car (I was almost ill doing this bit) and I told them exactly where the heinous crime was committed.

And they will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy the central reservation on the M5 at the Klipfontein on-ramp.
Or at least, they’ll be in touch with you and you might get a fine of up to R1,000. I wish it were more.

More here on the Stompie Hotline.

Please note, the Stompie Hotline is in no way connected with Stompie Moeketsi or Winnie Madikizela-Mandela; and if you suggest otherwise, then the ANC will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious… oh never mind.

  1. Ja, but broer, jislaaik – it wasn’t me that started that fire that killed all the protea plants on the Berg. Nee wat! Those fires are started by real fire starters, broer. Ag, when that stompie slipped from my fingers, I had put it out. You have to believe me, boet! 😀

  2. Urgh!!!! This is one of my pet peeves. And although being from the EC I have no defence. They do it here ALL the TIME. Yesterday we had about 7 fires raging around the city and I still saw people doing it.

    Does that Stompie Hotline extend this way because I think it is a FANTASTIC idea.

    And yes, all the CAPS were necessary!

  3. Up here in Joburg they should pay you to drop your lit cigarette butt out of the window. It burns down the tall grass where the hijackers hide and it prevents the grass from spreading to the potholes. The grass here is more dangerous than the baboons in cape town. They don’t throw you off cliffs, they strangle you to death.

    Viva to Stompie

  4. HH > Are you sure you’re not a Saffa, chyna?

    Pamela >Pfft. You ECers are all the same.

    Don > Nothing burns up there. It rains too much.

    Emil > Hahahahahahahahahahaha! (keep dreaming)

  5. what do you do when you see people throwing other shit out of their cars? i once saw a woman throw out an entire KFC meal box with chicken bones & all – WHILE DRIVING.

    anyhoos, hear hear. when i was a smoker (ahem ahem, *was* a smoker) i would always extinguish the butts inside the car. gross, yet safe. ew… so glad i quit.
