Former South African president, Nelson Mandela, who passed away yesterday, was absolutely great in every single way possible, it has been revealed.
It is just difficult to put into words just how absolutely great the great man had been so here are some great quotes from people who have voiced their opinions on just how great the great man's greatness actually was.
"He was just great", said one person. "He was absolutely great," said another. "You know that thing that's the opposite of being absolutely great, well, Mandela was the opposite of that", said a third. "I think he was absolutely great as well," said a fourth, "because if I told the truth and said that I was a bit sorry that he was dead, but that I'm not really that bothered about it because I have a load of my own problems to deal with, then people would probably think that I'm some sort of Antichrist racist, so I'd better just say that he was absolutely great."
Mandela was just so great that, even on a web site which had, only yesterday, published a humourous story relating to the serious injury and attempted murder of a young girl, an attempt to try and satirise the media's over-exaggeration of Mandela's achievements and people's lack of knowledge and understanding about what Mandela actually did was deemed to be totally unacceptable. This was, of course, quite proper and correct because Mandela was, as everyone has quite correctly agreed, absolutely great.
