    cool post. igbo ppl are huge on proverbs, its how you sound educated culturally or aristocratic. my grandpa's little apprentice boy claims to know "over 250 proverbs"
    it's really funny cause the kid is a fuckin idiot.


    but uh

    the respect you use to remove the cap off the liquor will be the respect it uses when it removes your cap.

    With all respect to your igloo, that is the WORST proverb that I think has ever been said out loud by a human. Even in the ktl, even here, that looks bad. Shit sounds like a gucci mane lyric hahahaha.

    the wu are a great example of this proverb in action. (and i dont mean the guys from ny)
    weep for lost babylon,
    the bleeding god, the forgotten sheep slaughtered in a forest of evil fog
    bordered by a sea of faults,
    fleeing mobs turn to see the holocaust and become kings and queens of salt
    screaming shots, police and chalk,
    wingless fallen demons walking among us as people...

    Yes in places like Hong Kong still the only thing they use for scaffolds is bamboo. Thats the thing that hit me most first when I went there, youve got this uber modrn city covered in Bamboo!
