Topical humour..

An elderly lady receives an e-mail from the son of a deceased (but wealthy) African general, asking whether he could transfer millions of pounds into her bank account in return for a 20% cut. All the son needs is the sort code and account number. Not realising she is the victim of a Nigerian 419 fraud, she e-mails back the details. A couple of minutes later she receives an e-mail back from the general's son: 'Icesave?!' What is this, some sort of scam?"

Thanks BK for forwarding this one!

Oh dear, this reminds me of that magazine many Nigerians (sometimes) love to hate :-)))) READER'S DIGEST... Rumors have it that a good number of Reader's Digest Jokes are created specially to confound Nigerians: you read the joke from first word to fullstop, then you read it from fullstop to first word, then you read it again, lingering on each word to tease out the comic 'open sesame'.
NOTHING.
You think of submitting yourself for an IQ test...

And then you remember that yes, but of course, if there are stiff-upper lip people then there must be stiff-upper lip jokes.

And then you laugh at the joke, ten minutes after not getting it....


LOL!!!! LMAO!!!! very funny [wiping tears of joy from his eyes]

let me go and read it again. I will get it this time. In Jesus Name. AMEN.

Jeremy, a lot of naija bloggers look up to you

why not do a post on the current banking thingy in relation to naija

as you are aware, the ceos of UK high street banks may all be on their way out...the md of rbs has ceeded control

will nigeria follow? nationalisation (govt stake in) of nigerian banks?

Red Eyes 9:58 am  

no dividend pay out until the Government's investment in preference shares have been fully repaid

no nigerian ceo will accept a pay cut so i think most may have to step down...unless naija has some magic formula and the banks can survive without government intervention...i think the game may be up...
