Just a thought...LOL!

Ahn ahn, una no even halla sey Sir Scribbles no dey yarn liek b4, wiv all thsio 100th post talk and Mumsy gist I have strayed away from the foundation of this blog, the basis of my posts and the soul of my writtings. Oya back to business, Sir Scribbles has few observatiosn and opnions and once again the requirements are a very vivid imagination and a love for absolute nonsense lol.

We all know the stories about wise tortoise and how he scammed half the animal kingdom but nobody has ever asked why tortoise was so successful? I mean tortoise scammed the elephant and took his chieftancy title, scammed the hare and wrecked his self esteem and let's not forget he scammed the birds into giving him an I.V to their heavenly owambe. After all this you'd think all the other animals wud think twice before accepting an offer from this devious reptile but no they didn't! It started as whispers in the jungle, rumours exchanged ears and all the animals gasped as they read the front page of Great Vine news the next day, their king, their leader, their only hope for a solution to tortoise's tyranny had been overthrown in a bloodless coup by none other than the shattered shelled one. How you still remain the king of the jungle baffles me but Lion, if you are reading this, I have one word for you....MUGU!

I'm sure most of you are familiar with this lullaby
Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,

When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.
Abeg make una look this thing well ehn, how is this supposed to make a baby sleep? infact any child with diaper's worth of an imagination should hear this lullaby and immediately assume it is a death threat! It's all fine and dandy for the first two lines until the third line where the child is told that the bough on which the cradle it sleeps in rests will break and the child will plummet to it's death. Seriously ehn, who sets their baby's cradle on a tree? infact this lullaby is an evidence of parental negligence as well as a threat on the child's life cos only the most cavalier of parents will let their baby go to sleep on a tree branch. If I be pikin and I hear mumsy or popsy dey sing this song I no go even watse time, na to just throway sucker , jump cradle and pick race GBAM! why threaten me when you cud have just gotten an abortion.
