JOHANNESBURG - British actor Stephen Fry has poked fun at the South African accent on twitter, sparking an often hilarious response from followers.
It started on Tuesday when he tweeted, presumably about the cricket match between South Africa and England.
When a South African commentator talks about "this evening&39;s harlot package" … can only suppose they mean "highlight". But perhaps not.— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) December 29, 2015
He went on to talk about another incident he&39;d experienced.

Fry&39;s followers responded with their own anecodes.
