Wordy Wednesday: ‘Vocab101'

Vocab1018x61_thumb141_thumb2[1] For those who do not know, Vocab101 is my daily attempt to find a new and interesting word which could potentially be used in everyday circumstances. The words I find range from the obscene, to the unbelievably true and, of course, the colloquial. Thus, Hans’ Milieu now has a ‘Wordy Wednesday’.

Each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will take place on Wordy Wednesdays and will contain all the words I have tweeted over the course of one week from the previous Vocab101 session (7 days, 7 new words). Furthermore, each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will contain additional new words which did not make the original cut, but are just as tantalising/disturbing!


  • McShame – The emotion felt while eating a super sized fast food value meal, alone in your car, before leaving the parking lot.
  • Bitchnut – When a guy acts like he’s PMS-ing through being bitchy and whiny.
  • Carbicide – The act of not eating any carbohydrates thus disallowing any ‘carbs’ from entering your body. Essentially carbohydrate suicide!
  • Urbtard – Someone who cannot spell, often omits vowels (eg: ‘lk’ instead of ‘look’) & usually uses the wrong words to convey meaning (eg: ‘there’ instead if ‘their’). Most children born in the 90’s and onwards are considered Urbtards.
  • Manscape – When a man trims & shapes the hair on his body, instead of removing it completely.
  • Eyemuff – Similar to an earmuff, but used to cover the eyes and prevent the viewing of unsuitable material.
  • Schnarf – To spray one’s drink out of one’s nose as the result of sudden laughter. Also known as the colloquial expression for ‘cocaine’.

Vocab101-isms which missed the cut:

  • Minge – Loose, shaggy vaginal pubic hair, that is not neatly trimmed, and may be somewhat fragranced.

  • Mangina – When a man pulls his penis and scrotum back between his legs (forming a basket of fruit behind him), and then proceeding to put his legs together,  to simulate the look of a woman’s vagina from the front.

I do hope that you enjoyed the first edition of Vocab101 and that you will return for some more Vocab101-isms in the near future.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!

The “Joostgate” Skandaal – Cocaine, sex, explicit video, adultery…

Reluctantly, I have to say it. Patricia Lewis, you have finally won.

After all of these years of tabloid fever pitting South African ‘celebs’ Patricia Lewis and Amore Vitonne against one another, and vice versa, we appear to finally have a winner! Regardless of whether the battle was via hairstyles, fashion, music, events and even children; it is now safe to say, that you, yes you Patricia, can now have the biltong… and eat it too!

Sure enough, I do not think that anyone would have wanted the ‘Joostgate’ scandal to break the way it did. Excluding, of course, the individuals who orchestrated the entire thing. I am also quite certain that even Amore’s aforementioned tabloid enemy, the biltong loving nemesis Patricia Lewis, could not have hoped or planned for a better is unhappy with the sordid outcome.

So what happened and what exactly is ‘Joostgate’?

Joostgate’ is the term coined by South Africa’s best selling tabloid magazine, Heat, to describe the scandal surrounding former South African Springbok, Joost Van Der Westhuizen. Put simply, wholesome family man and rugby star Joost was caught schnarfing cocaine off of a prostitute’s body, while she deep throated him, before banging her silly. At least he used a condom. Kudos to Joost for sending out a message of pro-contraception and for protecting Amore from STI’s (Sexually Transmitted Infections). Shame on Joost for getting caught promoting drug use, prostitution and for, allegedly, destroying the sanctity of marriage for young impressionable South Africans… *rolls eyes*. Naturally Joost denied it was him in the video, citing, among other ludicrous facts, that his penis is smaller than the one on the guy in the video. Really Joost? Was that honestly your best response? Shame.

Heat first broke the news of ‘Joostgate’ on 16th February 2009 – check out the excerpt below. Yeah I know, I am a little late to the party, but better late than never, right?

You’ve seen the headlines and read the denials… and now heat will exclusively bring you the sex and drugs videotape of Joost van der Westhuizen and the stripper.

The former Springbok captain was secretly taped in a bare-looking room as he romped with the mystery blonde, snorted a white substance and talked about using drugs with her. The video was given to heat exclusively, and the story is covered in detail in this week’s heat. (Heat Online, 2009)

To add even more fuel to the fire, Heat did in fact release the video to the public. Please bare in mind that the video clips are not for sensitive viewers, not safe for work [NSFW] and are suitable for over 18’s only. You choose to view the content at your own peril discretion. You can find the series of video clips here. Do not bother with the first three clips. All the ‘good’ stuff happens from the fourth clip onwards.

As if Heat leaking the video and bringing Joost’s debauches acts to hungry gossipmongers was not enough; the ever faithful and news savvy Nando’s marketing flock jumped on the opportunity to add some additional flavour to the already scorching scandal. Check out these witty yet rather crude advertisements! Love it!

Although I do feel for Joost and Amore, especially for their children, the fact is… they are ‘celebrities’. Consequently, they both know that their lives, both professional and personal, would be under intense media scrutiny. Furthermore, there are always people trying to make a quick buck out of other people, especially those who are always in the spotlight. Granted this whole scenario could have been handled quietly, but such is human nature. Remember, money talks. Thus, Joost is really the one to blame here. If he just kept his dick in his pants or in parts of Amore, then this would not have happened. Also, why lie? Perhaps he was ill advised with the old adage “Deny. Deny. Deny”! We all know how well that worked for Clinton. If Joost had just cum come clean, I am quite certain that he would have been painted as the victim rather than the culprit. After all, honesty is the best policy! Oh well, you live, you learn, or in this case, you live and get painted as a coke snorting, prostitute ravaging, dream destroying, adulterer. Let us just hope that they do not decide to turn ‘Joostgate’ into a movie. A porno, perhaps?! Now there’s an idea!

Breaking News (01 November 2009) via the Heat Twitter: Joost, the man, the legend the adulterer, finally confesses:  “It is me in the sex video and I’m very, very sorry that I lied. Please forgive me” (Joost van der Westhuizen, 2009). Seriously? NOW he cums comes clean? Too little, too late. I am sure that those who care, would have forgiven him if he was honest from the start.  Now, however, fans realise that even his word means nothing. Unsurprisingly, Joost claims that he does not expect forgiveness from his wife since he, allegedly, cannot yet forgive himself. As a result, “things are not 100% with Amor yet”, like… duh, and  Joost further confesses that he did, in fact, snort the cocaine off of the lovely prostitutes bosom, amongst other nooks and crannies. Consequently Joost and SuperSport have “mutually” ended their working relationship. A nice way of sugar coating the fact that they fired his Lilly white ass. Like I said before, Joost should have just been honest from the start. He would have then been painted as something other than a drug using, whore defiling, icon thrashing, lying philanderer. Once again, you live, you learn!

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!
