The Team does a great job at playing, performing and pretending; so much so that I have concluded that they have the best sense of humour in the world. Sadly, their humour is not frequently matched. Minister Malcolm warned us, for instance, that the reason the oppressed people continue to get beat up and disappointed by the Team is because they really believe the Team when the Team talks about the “equality” they do not really “mean.” These magicians sure are funny, and yet, for all the jokes they propagate and/or promulgate, where are the jokes from the other side? In terms of joke-creation, since the gap in “invention” between whites and non-whites is so incredibly tragic, I thought I’ll get the “wheel” rolling by reviving interest in the topic:
-A Man was given a wish, and told he could have whatever he wants, however, the condition was that whatever he got, his neighbours would have double. “They don’t need to do anything”, the wish-granter said, “they would simply have twice of what you desire for them.” At this point, the man got so obsessed by the thought of his neighbours making this gain that he suddenly conjured a wish: “dream-maker, I want you take out one of my eyes.”
-Wuzunga was walking through a forest when she suddenly encountered a butterfly struggling out of a cocoon. Upon seeing this, she moved to help the butterfly by trying to assist it out of the cocoon. The butterfly fell to the ground and died.
-And a Man sat alone, drenched deep in sadness. And all the animals drew near to him and said, “We do not like to see you so sad. Ask us for whatever you wish and you shall have it.” The Man said, “I want to have good sight.” The vulture replied, “You shall have mine.” The Man said, “I want to be strong.” The jaguar said, “You shall be strong like me.” Then the Man said, “I long to know the secrets of the earth.” The serpent replied, “I will show them to you.” And so it went with all the animals. And when the Man had all the gifts that they could give, he left. Then the owl said to the other animals, “Now the Man knows much, he’ll be able to do many things. Suddenly I am afraid.” The deer said, “The Man has all that he needs. Now his sadness will stop.” But the owl replied, “No. I saw a hole in the Man, deep like a hunger he will never fill. It is what makes him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking, until one day the World will say, ‘I am no more and I have nothing left to give.'”
-a non-white male one day found himself in an insane asylum; when he tried to tell the other non-whites what it was, because they saw the place as normal, they thought that he was crazy
