      Cut off your legs and buy new ones. Ask Oscar to get you discount.

    Oscar should be carrying our flag at the olympics. A symbol of courage, hard work and positive attitude. If we had more people with that mindset in SA, we would be better off. Oscar is a beacon of hope for the world to see.
