So what kind of ringtone do you have?

I've always thought that you can learn a bit, just a bit, about people by what kind of ringtones they have. (Like, if you have a Himesh Reshammiya ringtone, I'm not coming to coffee with you.) Well, it seems to be blatantly true for some people in South Africa, where a newly popular ringtone features "a song about tying a black person to the back of a truck and setting dogs on him."

Actually, given a choice between having coffee with a chappie with that ringtone and a chappie with the Himesh Reshammiya ringtone, I'll take the Himesh Reshammiya chappie. Please don't call him, though, ok?
