A photo has surfaced on Twitter featuring an iced cake with a few select words on it however, they seem to be a little mean and we can’t stop laughing.


Checkers at the Nicolway made a little typo on a cake recently that has people in giggles and wondering what on earth “Bokkie” did to deserve such a message.

Spotted shortly after the Springboks played Australia, we can only assume the message was supposed to say “Go Die Bokke” the “Die” being the Afrikaans word for “the”.

However, Bokkie is more of a pet name so at a glance, one could assume that “Bokkie” in this case is a person.


Twitter user, Travesty_Kruger posted the photo and asked Checkers what the deal was…

“Hey CheckersSA, What did Bokkie do to make you so angry? Do you need a hug?”

The store responded and asked which branch the image was taken at and said it had to be a case of lost in translation. Travesty_Kruger responded that the cake had given him a real giggle.

“Thanks! We also had a good giggle but rest assured, we have no hard feelings towards “Bokkie”‘ – CheckersSA

 We also had a great chuckle at the typo. What do you think?
