[MUST READ] Community’s hilarious comments make headlines

Community members are truly the heart an soul of the News. Over the past few months Krugersdorpers have been the origin of a lot of our laughs in the News‘ office.

First the community commented on a few lighthearted articles and then they started showing us that even serious incidents can sometimes be resolved by a couple of lighthearted jokes.

The most recent Krugersdorp funny-spell was the comments found on the article Fast and Furious: Blikkies edition.

The crux of the story was a driver ramped his bakkie from Commissioner Street onto the roof of a residential carport.

No one was injured, however the community could not help but make light of the situation.

Here are some of the best comments community members posted on social media:



And the News’ top comment was by Annene Basson:


Even the News’ Afrikaans readers jumped in and sent emails with comments on.  One resident said: The Stig van Top Gear se Blikkies boetie: Die Stomp. 

Another comment said: “Who needs Lanseria anyway.”


The News also had a lot of fun playing with the idea of idioms:




Amanda van Loggerenberg, a Krugersdorp ward coulcillor, ended the comment section by saying:


Thank you Krugersdorp for always handling situations like this in good spirit.
