Kaptein Jan van Hunks was ‘n berugte pyp roker aan die Kaap van Goeie Hoop  tydens die vroeë 1700’s. Van Hunks was op sy gelukkigste teen die hange van Tafelberg, toe bekend as Windberg, waar hy rustig aan sy pyp kon teug en die uitsig oor Tafelbaai geniet. Op ‘n dag was hy oudergewoonte oppad om te rook, maar was verbaas om te sien dat ‘n vreemdeling in ‘n lang, swart jas met ‘n breëband hoed op sy plek sit. Nog meer verbaas was Jan dat die vreemdeling hom op die naam groet.  Hy het langs die man gaan sit, en kort voor lank het beide  gespog oor die hoeveelheid wat hulle kan rook, en het die mans mekaar gedaag tot ‘n kompetisie. Heeldag het hulle gerook, soveel so dat hulle mekaar skaars kon sien, en dat die rook die hele Tafelberg bedek het.  So het dit aangehou totdat die vreemdeling uit asem vooroor geval het, en sy hoed van sy kop geval het – net om twee horings bloot te lê. Van Hunks kon sy oë nie glo nie – hy het die duiwel in ‘n rook kompetisie gewen! Die vreemdeling het meteens sy hande geklap en met ‘n groot donderslag het beide hy en Van Hunks verdwyn. Tot vandag toe daag die duiwel vir Van Hunks uit, en word Tafelberg bedek met ‘n wolk wanneer hulle mekaar die stryd aansê.

Captain Jan van Hunks was a notorious pipesmoker in the Cape of Good Hope during the early 1700s. He often boasted that no man alive could beat him in a smoking contest. He was at peace when he sat on the slopes of Table Mountain, then called Windberg, looking out over Table Bay. One day, as he was walking up Windberg, he saw a stranger wearing a long, black cloak with a wide brimmed hat sitting in his usual spot. Ever more astonished was Jan when the stranger greeted him by his name. Not wanting to appear impolite, he sat down and quickly their talk turned to boasting about their smoking abilities, and in turn, they decided on a smoking contest. On and on they smoked, hours on end, until they could hardly see each other, and the whole of the mountain was covered with smoke. At long last the stranger fell forward, his hat dropping to the grass, only to reveal two horns. Van Hunks couldn’t believe it – he bested the devil in a smoking contest! So angry was the devil that he clapped his hands and both men vanished, but their contest continues, for every time the clouds cover Table Mountain, the devil and Van Hunks are at it again.
