Tales of the Bizarro World

Probability of the South African crowd suddenly falling in love with KP and the government backflipping in order to present him with the highest South African honour? Probably zero. But the chances that this new friendship between Graeme Smith and Shane Warne will lead to the two SAfricans becoming best friends is looking at its highest. It's only a matter of time, I'm thinking. Maybe Warnie will present an ultimatum:

"Stop fighting or I'm leaving both of you."

"...And reinventing myself as a robot."

And since everyone knows KP just wants to be loved, his insecurities would cause him to let down the hostilities and declare his love for Graeme. Meanwhile, Michael Vaughan would be hastily texting KP trying to fill the quota of 5 texts per day in order to boost KP's ego and convince him that he has friends. But Vaughan will soon be forgotten because KP has got better friends now.

As it turns out, there is probably no one in the world who does want the highest South African honour. It is rather hilariously named "The Order of the Companions of OR Tambo" and broken down into three awards:
Class 1 = Supreme Companion of OR Tambo (Gold)
Class 2 = Grand Companion of OR Tambo (Silver)
Class 3 = Companion of OR Tambo (Bronze).

And you get a walking stick with each award. I, for one, would love to be the Supreme Companion of OR Tambo, as opposed to just the Grand Companion.

I bet KP's shitting his pants trying to qualify for one. Because then at least OR Tambo will be his friend.

Well, you have to do some pretty amazing stuff to get it, you know. They don't just give out walking sticks to everyone.
