Ten of the Best #58

Hey there all you gorgeous people. Looking good, lying in your bed on a Saturday morning. So, before you get out of bed, here's a roundup of what was hot on social media this week. All the news, the funny and the entertaining, in one spot.

I love this summary of all that is SA this week. After the dismal election results, and the ongoing talks of coalitions, it was also Woman’s Day. Read Richard Poplak’s great summary, if you haven't yet - it featured on EVERYONE's timeline. Click on the Zapiro pic.

Of course the politicians made promises like “the ANC will be in power until Jesus comes again.” So now everyone is making jokes about the second coming. Here’s my favourite.

Gymnastics in the Rio Olympics has been amazing, and I loved the story of Simone Biles. Then I realised it has been 40 years since Nadia Comaneci and when I watched this, thought - was she just ahead of her time?

If animals could talk, what would they say? These are FUN-NEE . Very.

The music post of the week… Happy Birthday by the classical composers. Played by Nicole Pesce.

There were also some medical breakthroughs shared. I found this one particularly interesting - the paralysed patients are walking, contrary to expectations. The Independent reports.

Here’s a handy hint for you - how to fix a zipper. 

Maya Angelou’s poem, narrated by Maya Angelou.

The tables are turned on David Attenborough in this cute clip.

And we'll end with a SA classic - the Cremora ad. Shouldn't need any introduction. If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch it here.

The bonus post this week is very short - because EVERYONE knows SOMEONE who needs a dog like it.

Bye beautifuls, see you all next week.

Want more? Here's last week's post.
