If you're South African then you probably know what a braai is. If not, 'braai' is the Afrikaans word for 'barbecue' and is a social custom across various ethnic groups in the southern hemisphere, particularly South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

And people take their braais very seriously, as was the case with this child.

The mother, named Bianca Myburgh, posted a video on Facebook asking her son why he was crying, and his answer was: “Ek wil braai…. kan jy nie verstaan nie, ek will net braai”. When translated, the boy is saying: "I want to braai .... can you not understand, I just want to braai."
