MONEY MAKING SCHEMES

Before the police came to pack all the beggars from Yaba last year, there was a constant blind beggar who always sat near the NYSC statue (if you know Yaba well,its just at the round about, where you can find buses going to Idi-araba). He had a dog that was always faithfully at his side, and never left him. The scene always used to touch one of my friends and she would drop some change in the beggar's bowl on our way to school, but one day we were almost late for class and we hurried past, only for the man to run after us, begging for money. We were surprised.
"How did you know I passed you?", my friend asked. "Are you not blind?"
"I am not blind," replied the man, pointing to the dog. "Its Rover that is blind".
On closer inspection, we realised that the "To whom it may concern" tablet hanging from the man's neck did indeed say that one "Rover Donalds xxxxxx was blind from cataract".
Nigerians! What wont we do for money?

Little boy's prayer

At dinner, a little boy offered to lead in prayer.
"Dear Lord," he started, "Forgive our neighbor's son, who removed my sisters clothes and wrestled with her on her bed and made her cry."

"This coming winter," he continued, ignorant of all the stares he was receiving,"Please send clothes to all those poor naked ladies on my dad's blackberry and provide shelter for the homeless men who use mom's room when daddy is at work"

...AMEN!.... and there was silence.
