In a small Italian town, hundreds of years ago, a small business owner owed a large sum of money to a loan-shark. The loan-shark was a very old, unattractive looking guy that just so happened to fancy the business owner’s daughter.
He decided to offer the businessman a deal that would completely wipe out the debt he owed him. However, the catch was that we would only wipe out the debt if he could marry the businessman’s daughter. Needless to say, this proposal was met with a look of disgust.
The loan-shark said that he would place two pebbles into a bag, one white and one black.
The daughter would then have to reach into the bag and pick out a pebble. If it was black, the debt would be wiped, but the loan-shark would then marry her. If it was white, the debt would also be wiped, but the daughter wouldn’t have to marry the loan-shark.
Standing on a pebble-strewn path in the businessman’s garden, the loan-shark bent over and picked up two pebbles. Whilst he was picking them up, the daughter noticed that he’d picked up two black pebbles and placed them both into the bag.
He then asked the daughter to reach into the bag and pick one.
The daughter naturally had three choices as to what she could have done:
Refuse to pick a pebble from the bag.
Take both pebbles out of the bag and expose the loan-shark for cheating.
Pick a pebble from the bag fully well knowing it was black and sacrifice herself for her father’s freedom.
She drew out a pebble from the bag, and before looking at it ‘accidentally’dropped it into the midst of the other pebbles. She said to the loan-shark;
“Oh, how clumsy of me. Never mind, if you look into the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I picked.”
The pebble left in the bag is obviously black, and seeing as the loan-shark didn’t want to be exposed, he had to play along as if the pebble the daughter dropped was white, and clear her father’s debt.
May God Almighty Grant Us Wisdom To Overcome Every Trap of the Enemy in our Lives. Amen.
A lady goes to the doctor and complains that her husband is losing interest in sex. The doctor gives her a pill, but warns her that it’s still experimental. He tells her to slip it into his mashed potatoes at dinner, so that night, she does just that.
About a week later, she’s back at the doctor, where she says, “Doc, the pill worked great! I put it in the potatoes like you said! Just five minutes later, he jumped up, pushed all the food and dishes onto the floor, grabbed me, tore all my clothes off, and ravaged me right there on the table!”
The doctor replied, “I’m so sorry about that. We didn’t realize the pill was that strong! The foundation will be glad to pay for any damages you may have incurred.”
“Don’t bother yourself, Doc.,” she says,
“It’s okay. We were quite happy to pay for the damages promptly. We’re never going back to that restaurant anyway. It is high time we did some damages to our bedroom”
Well for sometime now, we have not heard any clarifications concerning the NYSC “Exemption Certificate” in possession of no other person than the Nigerian Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun.
People (including yours truly) are beginning to wonder if the NYSC and even possibly, the Premium Times have been “Exempted” from further speaking and writing on the issue.
The “deafening silence” of the Presidency as a whole on the issue is surely “Transmitting some suggestions of Commissions or and Omissions” in this case of national importance. We are already afraid to talk about “one other person’s” (no names mentioned O!) WAEC Certificate for now.
The Ministry of Finance is surely not one to be toyed with by any country that wishes to have progress in its developmental strides.
Please help share this post so as to let the government know that Nigerians are no longer ready to be taken for granted and are not fools.
That is how to start letting our government know that it is no longer “business as usual” and Nigerians are now ready to take their fate into their own hands come 2019.
If you are a Nigerian living in the country as at the time of my writing this post, I am quite sure you know that right now in this country, “Things Didn’t Easy”.
Except of course, if you are living in Aso Rock or well related to the inhabitants of that “Demonic Enclave”.
This is the right time for the true citizens to take a position before it is too late. Many people have suggested different “solutions” to the situation we have found ourselves in, as is usual with us.
Well for now, the solution that I think we should start with is the one you see below produced by a citizen who I am sure is one of those that have not yet been “transmitted into confuscus” as planned by the country’s enemies.
This is surely a good starting point.
See for yourself.
If you truly love this country, you will share this message with like minds until it gets to as many compatriots as possible.
God bless the artist that produced this cartoon.
God bless you as you spread this message of redemption.
God save Nigeria from the demons at work against it.
May the Almighty God protect you and your family members in these difficult times.
A man is out in the Chinese wilderness and he’s hopelessly lost. It’s been nearly three weeks since he’s eaten anything besides what he could forage and he’s been reduced to sleeping in caves and under trees.
One afternoon he comes upon an old mansion in the woods. It has vines covering most of it and the man can’t see any other buildings in the area. However, he sees smoke coming out of the chimney implying someone is home.
He knocks on the door and an old man answers, with a beard almost down to the ground. The old man squints his eyes and says “What do you want?”
The man says “I’ve been lost for the past three weeks and haven’t had a decent meal or sleep since that time. I would be most gracious if I could have a meal and sleep in your house for tonight”
The old Chinese man says “I’ll let you come in on one condition: You cannot mess around with my grandaughter”
The man, exhausted and hungry readily agrees, saying “I promise I won’t cause you any trouble. I’ll be on my way tommorrow morning”
The old Chinese man counters “Ok, but if I do catch you then I’ll give you the three worst chinese torture tests ever known to man.”
“Ok, Ok” the man said as he entered the old house. Besides, he thought to himself, what kind of woman would live out in the wilderness all her life?
Well, that night, when the man came down to eat (after showering), he saw how beautiful the grandaughter was. She was an absolute pearl, and while he had only been lost three weeks, it had been many,many months without companionship. And the girl had only seen the occasional monk besides her grandfather and well, they both couldn’t keep their eyes off each other throughout the meal.
That night, the man snuck into the girls’ bedroom and they had quite a time, but had kept the noise down to a minimum. The man crept back to his room later that night thinking to himself, “Any three torture tests would be worth it after that experience.”
Well, the next morning the man awoke to a heavy weight on his chest. He opened his eyes and there was this huge rock on his chest. On the rock was a sign saying “1st Chinese torture test: 100 lb rock on your chest”.
“What a lame torture test” the man thought to himself as he got up and walked over to the window. He opened the shutter and threw the rock out. On the backside of the rock is another sign saying “2nd worst Chinese torture test: Rock tied to right testicle”.
The man, seeing the rock was too far out the window to be grabbed, jumps out the window after the rock. Outside the window is a third sign saying “3rd worst Chinese torture test: Left testicle tied to bedpost”.
