Welcome to the town of Benoni.
This little town is part of what forms the “Tappit triangle;” including Benoni, Boksburg and Brakpan, and on the border of Springs. Benoni has some heart and soul, and a whole lot of other dodge stuff.
Don’t get your knickers in a knot! I grew up in this town, so it kind of gives me the right to joke about it. 😉
The catch phrase “Only in Benoni” derived from all things that would only happen in Benoni. For example: “Only in Benoni would there be bullet holes in the Welcome town board.” Feel free to tweet me with your version of #OnlyinBenoni phrases. The only rule is; it has to be true.
Everyone knows Korsman’s has the best soft serve in the East Rand.
You know you are from Benoni if…
1. You have waved to the white Caltex Bunny.
2. You have been to the Bunny Park (Hasiepark.)
The Mullet or Mul-lé for a classy pronunciation. Described as “business in front and party in the back.” The perfect example is our own local Vernon Koekemoer. The man who believes your Biceps should be the same width as your neck.
This is only some of the best features of Benoni. This town has a lot to offer and you should visit at own risk! 😉 I have been told before; you can take the girl out of Benoni, but you cannot take Benoni out of the girl.
