Thurrogits that are random

Jazz is impossible to define. You just know it when you see it. Jazz, therefore, and I am not the first to make this comparison, is very much like pornography. (Jazz, by Igis Jazz by Tumwi). And what if we didn’t actually win independence? What if we didn’t break free of colonialism but rather, were abandoned? As in the old empires just decided we were too much of a burden and cut us loose? What if we didn’t quit, but were fired?  Holy shit, Angelakintu.com has a deadly looking template. Twenty-eight types of awefreakinsome. I also want. It looks like ebigenderako. I read something in the papers the other week. Kevin O’Connor wrote it. “So often in Uganda, because of its different cultural perspective, I end up having to explain my jokes – and if you have to explain a joke anywhere in the world, then almost certainly, the humour is lost in the process,” he said. The joke in this case was: “I now run so slowly that last week, I was overtaken by an old woman carrying a pot on her head.” 

That was the entire joke. No, I haven’t left out the set-up, or the context or anything. That is it. That.  Is . It. 
I spent money on that paper. Mr Kevin O’connor should give me my  balance.

  1. And as far as I know, with the exception of maybe Isaiah Katumwa and maybe that Israeli band I have never heard of, all they had at that festival was a bunch of World music artistes. So ya’ll got punk’d proper by Warid.

  2. I saw scratched my head at that ka ‘joke’.
    @kakaire, world music is an example of the American tendency to put a vague stamp on anything they are not sure about.

  3. every time Kevin O’conor submits his articles, he calls up the editor and asks “isn’t(story) funny? did you laugh? tell me did you laugh so hard?” true story by the way. and he gets paid more than the rest of them(writers) just coz his skin is white. Fucking white ass butt kissing employers.
    bye

  4. I think it is funny that the joke is not funny. I always laugh at unfunny jokes because they are unfunny. Don’t you guys see the humor in that?

  5. My Mom believes that we were fired and that oba the BEA just begged the British to colonise us. Mbu that is why a Duke of Kent was sent to us at independence.

    My former Boss from the UK believes we were too much of a burden and that they made huge losses from colonising us.

  6. jst had to share this, 4give me 4 being offish topic.

    in 2dy’s daily, M7 is quoted as saying the Prez is 2nd only 2 God n a Prez shdnt tell lies.

    P.S. Baz, shd the qn mark 2 lines above have come be4 or after the apostrophe?

  7. @ Kakaire and Solo, I am not saying it is not jazz. I’m just saying, Jazz is where you see it.

    @ Tandra and Cheri and Nevender you are lying. There was absolutely no joke to get.

    @ Mememememe, I really think someone should.

    @Edselah. Should I ask him if they are free?

    @ Mudamuli, I have been told it was because of huge debts from World War II

    @ Deg: You write shd and 2dy and n and then you worry about punctuation?
    @Petesmama: Exactly. You know?

    @E33tht: I think O’Connor is the only one in the right culture.

    @ Antithepop: Off topic, but yesterday I met someone who was kuwanaring you like omgtotally. She wants to have your babies.

    @Di: I do that, too. Except that it is when I make a very bad joke. The look on people’s faces when they don’t know whether to be polite or to slap me. Ask Darlkom. She has suffered.

    @ Carlo: those ones are lying. They got nothing funny.

  8. If we are east africans, why do we have to copy the american or englishor nigerian accent of english – that is what is special about Isaiah Katumwa. ORIGINAL . Longlive Isaiah Katumwa and band
