Playing with Fire (and getting burnt)

Just a short post to air my disbelief in regard to a particular news article that I heard on the radio on the way into work this morning. I can only describe the guy, a 40-something year old British immigrant to South Africa as a dumbass of note!

I just want him to look his best in front of all the judges that he’ll be facing. His wardrobe and makeup artist should also outfit him with a nice weave and reputable matt foundation as his shiny features reflect terribly in all his interviews and head shots. Continue reading
