"Miserable Failure"? Google-truuk sê dis Bush.


Explanation:
Since you need to type in "Miserable Failure" in English and not in Afrikaans, you'll have to keep those words in English even in the Afrikaans text. The Afrikaans for "miserable failure" is "volslae mislukking" (which literally means "complete failure").
