Kenyans win a lot of marathons.

Marathons are 26.2 miles.

Ergo, all Kenyans are marathon runners.

Which are a distance of 26.2 miles.


/ Just in case of short attention spans.

TY, Szech.

When I think of Kenya, I think of happy little lion cubs.

And Lake Turkana Boy.

Meh, I thought they'd meet and agree to transfer funds from the previous ruler's secret bank account into theirs. They would get to keep 20% as a handling fee, right?

Problem with the Kenyan election is that it was nearly a tie and wot do we know about ties?

That's right they "go to the runner"

Back to square one only this time with a machete.

ethnic clashes"?

Guess it's not called ethnic cleansing if both sides are doing it.

Wasn't there a Frankie goes to Hollywood song about this?

/too obscure or too ghey?

Oh crap, I just remembered that the scam is Nigeria not Kenya, oh well, I stand by what I said.
 
2008-01-24 05:45:22 PM  
I and others in the Kenyan community frown upon these shennanigans.

/ not really frowning
// not really funny though

I would comment on this thread, but I have to get to a Kenyan Marathon in 26 minutes.

There is your answer. Survival of the fittest.

No problem. When I think of Kenya, I think of the Busted Tee.

It'll make your babies run ABNORMALLY FAST!
 
2008-01-24 06:41:17 PM  
Thanks for making me lol!

Was never worried. They have too many tribes to descend into full scale war. Essentially, the other 20-30 tribes in Kenya will keep any two dipshiat tribes in check.

It's like if the Puero Ricans and Creoles ever declared war against each other in the U.S. It would create a minor mess, but everyone else would get sick of it.

Two champion runners are already among the victims. 2:12 marathon champion Wesley Ngetich was killed with a poisoned arrow. 1988 400m Olympian Lucas Sang was hacked to death. Either way, not a pleasant way to go.

Ouch! I'm so gonna burn in hell for laughing at that
 
2008-01-24 07:23:42 PM  
Only in Kenyaaaaaaaaa ...

-- but seriously, that site wanted me to subscribe to read the whole article. Did the leaders actually do the run together, or was that part made up? 'Cos if they really did it, that's kinda cool.
 
2008-01-24 07:49:11 PM  
nice job subby!

People chasing folks around with machetes?

No wonder they all run so good.

Makes sense to the ghost of Darwin anyway.
 
2008-01-24 07:56:10 PM  
More like Snorway.

/Kenya believe it?
 
2008-01-24 08:00:20 PM  
I expect somthing like this to happen here when Hillary gets elected.

I'm guessing nobody posting in this thread can make it 26 miles.

I'm good for 3, barely.
 
2008-01-24 11:17:11 PM  
Nairobi is a mile high. American runners will never beat Kenyans in races at low elevations unless they all start training in Colorado.

How the hell did that hyphen move all over the place? His name is Jean-Paul Jean-Paul.

The way you've written it makes his first name Jean, his middle name Paul-Jean, and his last name Paul.
