It's The Magic Wot Won It

It's very easy to fall back into lazy racial stereotypes, particularly when dealing with African nations.

However, the fact is that there are still many thousands of people on that continent who believe in the 'old ways' and that includes magic and voodoo.

Now, we might very well suspect that host nation South Africa has literally no chance at the 2010 World Cup Finals but, luckily, they have a secret weapon up their sleeves in the form of a bark called 'Impephu'.

Apparently, Impephu purifies the body aof harmful influences, thereby making you invincible. Which must be nice.

However, it does this by making you vomit a lot. Which is, er, not so nice.

Unfortunately FIFA have referred Impephu to the World Anti-Doping Agency, who will no doubt discover that it is, well, bark and - I don't want this to shock you - doesn't actually make you invincible at all.

As a South African and big follower of world news and sport I find it quite funny that people actually believe things like this. If this story had run on April fools I think it wouldn't been massive!

Come on everyone, let's stick together for this world cup and make it work for us all.
