A customer suggested that we re-name our shop ‘Mabu Vaginyl’, because it is situated between the two Labias….!

For all our international readers, this is yet another in the long-running series of Cape Town jokes that makes reference to the two well-known independent cinemas that are situated a block or two apart in the suburb of Gardens in Cape Town.

To walk from one to the other, one has to walk along Rheede Street, which is where you will find Mabu.

The cinemas were named after the Italian Countess Labia who owned the building and donated it to the arts, or something like that….

The best known joke in this series is “What do you call the pink thing that is found at the top of the labia?”, and the answer is…drum roll…drrrrrr…The Mount Nelson.
