I’m glad I’m not an effigy

June 18, 2007 at 3:08 pm (Uncategorized)

Another day, another burned effigy. Don’t you just love the way people in Pakistan and India are loyal to the flaming effigy?
Don’t like your shoes? Burn effigies. Would prefer green to blue roofs? Show them by burning effigies. Can’t stand old Salman? Effigy, effigy, effigy.
Doesn’t the word sound stranger now. Say it. E-f-f-i-g-i-e-s. A most rude-sounding word, actually. Imagine walking around here: Jy, jou ma se effigy or Kyk die fokken effigy or Your effigy and his brother…
Ok, clearly, I need to stop reading shit online.
