Watch: Mzansi left in stitches as little boy calls mogodu a hedgehog

When a mother attempts to feed her son a bite-sized portion of mogodu, he’s convinced she’s trying to get him to eat a prickly hedgehog.

Internet users were left in stitches when a little boy referred to South African cuisine mogodu as a hedgehog.

The cuisine, which consists of a combination of chopped tripe and intestines, is served as a stew, often with hot pap or dumplings, and comes from the insides of mammals like cows or sheep.

This video, which was originally uploaded to TikTok by content creator @_izibele, gained massive popularity with over 1.2m views.

In the video, the boy’s mother attempts to feed him a bite-sized portion of mogodu, which the boy says is disgusting and prickly, while drawing similarities between its texture and that of hedgehog’s quills.

People were surprised the boy knew what a hedgehog was, as many people had no clue. They think he could have gotten the idea from watching the movie, Sonic the Hedgehog.

TikTok users had their say in the comments:

“Do we even have hedgehogs in South Africa,” one person said.

Another user commented: “Look, we calling it ‘Hedgehog Mondays’ (taking from the famous concept Mogodu Mondays). I thank you.”

“As for a hedgehog, adding a crying emoji, it’s prickly. What?” another used said.

Someone else added: “I don’t blame him for not eating it; ah the smell when it’s boiled… I love trotters yes, but not hedgehogs, no.”
