Meet Boeta. He’s an African Thai Buddah.
Much like (no fairy tales ever) Boeta began his life in Woolworths and upon being rescued from sure death by humiliation on the sale rack, was placed in a tower with a lovely fair princess in a faraway land. By “Faraway land” I mean Cape Town, By ‘tower’ I mean the 16th floor of a building, which was sure the highest Boeta had ever been, even including that one time that the kids had hot-boxed the Woolworth’s storeroom. By “lovely, fair princess” – i mean just that… in other words, Angel, who acted like a princess… well, if princesses stayed in their pyjamas all day, slopped around the house, ate biscuits in bed, swore a lot and passed out with their make-up on. Then sure. Kate Middleton eat your heart out.
