I found a group on Facebook - Young, Fly & Yoruba (quite hilarious) and got this from there:

**You know you're YORUBA IF**
*Maltina is at Family functions
*The only reason you dance at Nigerian parties is to get "sprayed" money by the adults
*Your parents add "O" to the end of every sentence: Shutup-O! Get me water-O!
*You’ve been called an "AGBAYA!" if you are the oldest and one of your siblings acts up
*You’ve been called an "IJOT" more times than you can count by your parents
*You’ve been slapped for not greeting someone well
*You’ve gotten in trouble for giving an elder something with your left hand.
*You gotta call all the older Nigerians you know uncle or auntie even if they are not related!
*Your parents YELL, not talk on the phone
*Your parents buy phone cards on a weekly basis
*You know who King Sunny Ade and Salawa are
*When Shina Peters' Afro Juju comes on at a party, you lose your mind!
*You know what chin chin, puff puff, or moyin moyin are
*Your parents like eating Garri & Water as a snack (sometimes with peanuts)
*You can pick which you like better, Eba or Amala
*You been scared watching the movies your parents bring from back home
*There is ALWAYS white rice in your house
*Sometimes when you eat your Mom's food, your nose starts running from the spiciness
*A party starts at 6 and you show up at 10, and most people are still not there yet
*You say "Amen" a thousand times when you pray and all the parents know the exact time to say it.
*You always hear your parents say "Ah ah!"
*When your parents threaten to send you "back home" when you misbehave
*Your parents call Ramen noodles "indomie"
*You point at something with your lips
*You always have maggi cubes in your house
*You are mad that your clothes now smell of stock fish and stew
*You gotta pronounce your last name 20 times for people and they still don’t get it rite!
*You're laughing at this stuff because you can relate to some, if not most of them!!

Thanks Mona...been trying to learn the yahooze dance...lol.

And for the smart 9-yr old, no comment!!!

Oh mennn, Serena Williams needs to improve on her "spirit of sportmanship," she could even loose her fans if she continues grunting...

lol@ d yoruba list. It's all true sha o. But i thought it all applies to all naija parents in general???

As for Serena, u can't always win every game u play. Does any1 still remember dat english boxer prince Naseem, it seemed then dat he always win every fight in knockout round and it seemed then dat it was making his head swell up. It was like he's D MAN back then, until he lost a fight and we never heard from him again. At least she's got other things to fall back on, she's got her clothing line,doesn't she? Make she go for a year's break and she go come back ojare. Make i hear word.
