Oh my goodness, did you guys see this Trending Topic on Twitter the other day? Let me not pretend as if I am a knower of things, a friend of mine sent it to me on mail and I looked up some more and they are really funny. Naturally, there are those Africans who take themselves too seriously and say that the west must be laughing at our self loathing. I don't see any self loathing here, this is the first thing that has united us in humour, at least something that I've come across where we laugh about our country specific issues and we just laugh at ourselves in general. Don't get me wrong, I did come across some ignorant and racist ones but sometimes you actually just have to laugh things off.
