hillary: I don't think we'll be reading much from that author in the future. I also doubt we'll ever read about why he suddenly stopped writing.

Ahhh, Niger. So many possible con jobs, so little time.


I see you were conned into thinking it was about niger

...the Federal Government's stance of "Monkey de work, baboon de chop".

That's fantastic.

FTA: Essentially, the best manure in any farm is the farm owner's footprint.
FTA: [R]ather than the Federal Government's stance of "Monkey de work, baboon de chop"

This guy's writing is a goldmine of nearly insane proverbs.

That's all fine, but it's not a top flight performance until she also sings/plays for us the song of her people...

"The fine on her is non-negotiable (one carton of beer and a she goat). In the past, she was also immersed in ground charcoal and made to dance nude round the village"

I think the world might be a better place if this sort of punishment concept was much more widely applied

In other news, there are thieves in Nigeria.

The one good thing I got from this article: beginning to refer to the criminally incompetent Feds as the "FG".

hillary: Ahhh, Niger


Oh please. It's Nigeria. Two different countries.

What a strange article.

Also, Monkey de work, baboon de chop.
 
2012-01-01 01:41:27 PM  
My understanding:

"A thief is a thief, even if it is one of our own. There was once a son who caught his mother cheating. His mother would be punished harshley if he told, as per Bini tradition with a sacrifice (known as "ekpetin vbe odegbe"). In the olden days she would have been tarred and feathered.

If he does not tell, he could face a much worse fate himself.

Budgets get tight at the end of the year, and people do things they may not normally do out of desparation.

The Federal Government is taking credit for Local Government's infrastructure spending, by putting up signs claiming they did the work. This is lazy, wrong and deserves punishment.

Like the old saying, you reap what you sow, the Federal Government is neglecting its own people. We have to fix this, the status quo of many suffer while some benifit must end.

Two unpalatable options remain; to tell father or not. Enough is enough! The government has to work for the people."

(Monkey de work, baboon de chop = Money works, baboon benifits)

wtf am I reading?
 
2012-01-01 02:13:20 PM  
Really, the FG should be the ones providing ekpetin vbe odegbe.
To make reparations for too many years of "Monkey de work, baboon de chop."

Goodfella: The one good thing I got from this article: beginning to refer to the criminally incompetent Feds as the "FG".


I didn't get why he said that, and then said "Federal Government" every other time. What was the point of using FG that one time?
 
2012-01-01 02:21:01 PM  
I always wondered what our Federal Bureaucracy uses for inspiration.

Perhaps now I know.
 
2012-01-01 02:22:22 PM  
This article is anti-baboon. Some of my best friends are baboons, and they earned every penny they made.
 
2012-01-01 02:28:13 PM

I feel gratified. I was present at the birth of a new Fark meme (monkey de work; baboon de chop). What a wonderful New Year's gift!

Another article by the same guy: http://www.nncpo.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=316: caveat-emptor-bad-bonds-around&catid=37:nigerianews&Itemid=67

He likes his little aphorisms (as do I) and the "ekpetin vbe odegbe" phrase.

/has been fond of aphorisms for many years.

Well, it's good to know that Nigeria has their own version of the Tea Party.
