From Julius Malema's tantrums to President Zuma's plane trips, from Bakkies Botha's booting to Helen Zille's toyi-toyiing, it's been a big and busy year for news in the Rainbow Nation.
Now comes the newsiest titbit of all: the new Madam & Eve annual hits the streets today.
It's called The Pothole at the End of the Rainbow, and it features your favourite household maintenance executive, Eve Sisulu - now also a "Playmaid of the year" on the cover of the SA edition of Playboy Magazine - as well as Madam, Mother Anderson, and the usual crew of politicians, celebrities, and other leading South African icons and institutions.
Another satirical winner from this sharp and witty creative team.
The motley crew of Madam, Eve, Thandi and Mother Anderson are like old friends to most South Africans and their dysfunctional, chaotic and totally recognisable South African household is an unfailingly hilarious reflection of everyday life in this country.
