Crocodile tears and creativity… 1


… First the crocodile tears. We’ve all by now probably heard news of the terrible abduction of the school girls from Chibok village in Nigeria. If not check out the numerous stories on the net including on the Al Jazeera and / or The Guardian websites.

Well I was hanging out with some friends over the weekend, (a Nigerian or two amongst them), and was pointed in the direction of this hilarious (and also shameful) news footage of Nigeria’s First Lady (she ain’t no Michelle Obama that’s for sure), shedding crocodile tears over the incident:

 

 

And now for the creativity…

It really hasn’t taken very long at all for various creative Nigerian folk to get stuck into the country’s First Lady decidedly dodgy looking offer of tea and sympathy.

First up a satirical look at some of the country’s other problems, seen through the lens of the crocodile tears incident…

 

 

Next up the Rap…

 

 

And last but not least, the boogie…

 

 

On a completely unrelated but equally creative note I’m surprised but very pleased, to see this YouTube clip featuring Nigella Lawson (and the alleged drug scandal with which she is er, shall we say, associated), still doing the rounds on YouTube:

What a ting! Fill yer boots! Dar is God O!!!!

Long live the Internet and all the creative types who sail in her and so ably entertain us (as long as they ain’t taking the mick out of me of course 🙂 )
