And The Winner Iiiiiiiisssssssss…

beauty-pageant-queen1Thank you to everyone who submitted comments yesterday for the Vodacom Unlock The Power Of The Internet competition right here on TFW.

In case you missed it, I asked readers to submit captions for three insanely weird images I stole from and said the funniest caption (judged by me) would win 5Gb of data from Vodacom.

Well, we had some real hum-dingers yesterday – some were hopeless and some did actually make me chuckle but there can be only one and that one iiiiiiiiissssssss… RICHARD with his “Ju-Ju tiger” comment for Pic 3 – nice one charna!


Win 5GB Of Free Data, Courtesy of Vodacom

a_winner_is_you_1024Last week I mentioned I’d be running a competition on the site to win 5Gb of free data from Vodacom as part of their Unlock The Power Of The Internet campaign.

So howaboutit? Think you got what it takes to walk outta here 5Gb richer? Atta boy, let’s cut to the chase shall we?

To win the 5Gb, all you have to do is write the funniest caption you can think up for one of the three images I’m about to show you and the most hilarious caption (judged by me) wins the 5Gb. And don’t worry if you aren’t a Vodacom data subscriber, you’ll still be able to use the data.


How The Tiger Unlocks The Power Of The Interwebs

UntitledVodacom are doing a sick campaign at the moment where they’re asking SA’s top bloggers and influencers to share the secrets of how they unlock the power of the internet.

Naturally they called up your buddy ol’ pal Slicky-T, because it’s a well-documented fact that I’ve been unlocking the power of the interwebs since the mid-90s yo.

Back then, the internet was a joke. The information published on most websites was notoriously unreliable, pages took days to load and downloading a 10MB file would have probably taken at least three hours.


The Tiger And The Nokia Lumia Launch

Nokia launchYou get jaded pretty quickly as a blogger – PR companies contact you to invite you to one launch event after the next, all of them promising events that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER!

Fast forward to when you get there and you find a bunch of completely disinterested journos scratching their bums while they wait for the powerpoint presentation they know is going to follow with a look of mortal terror in their eyes.

You bolt as soon as it’s over and vow never, EVER again. Then you get the other kind of launch event, the kind that is awesome from start to finish like the Nokia Lumia launch I hit up last night.


When I Grow Up, I Wanna Be Alan Knott-Craig

A long time ago, I was a journalist working with a team of people from all over the world and I felt pretty fucking special and amazing.

We got paid every week in cash, huge wads of R200 notes carefully counted, stacked and packed into brown paper bags.

See, what we were doing wasn’t exactly legal. It would bore the hell out of me to have to explain it as I’ve probably told this story a hundred times, so instead I want you to think of the scene in Fight Club where they’re in the boutique store selling soap.
