South African Laughter Spot : Little Sipho went to visit his Gogo

One day, little Sipho went to visit his Gogo. Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said: “Gogo, why don’t you have a boyfriend now that grandpa went to heaven?”

Gogo replied: “Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs makes me feel good and the comedies makes me laugh. I’m happy with it as my boyfriend.”

Gogo turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible. She started adjusting knobs, trying to get it focus.

Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem.

Then little Sipho heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door, and there stood his grandpa’s old friend, now the Gogo’s pastor.

The pastor said: “Hello, son, is your Grandma home?”

The little boy replied: “Yeah, she’s in the bedroom bangin’ her boyfriend!”
