Humor on the Street

In Dutch we have the saying: de humor ligt op straat, or the humor is lying on the street. This is very true, even  in Antananarivo where overpopulation and intense poverty can make it easy to lose your sense of humor. But a quick visit to the bakery beneath my office made my day - when I saw the poster on the door.

No further comment...only that in Malgache language the last syllable is not pronounced!

  1. I see what you mean but I think Poopy sings pretty well. She is among my favourites when I was young. She is not a ylang ylang flower that brings good smell to the island but her smile and her voice brings good energy for the people and the island.
