You see that image up there? In that simple image of numbered fishes, a human being has successfully communicated to other humans that he is a lost cause. That his fatuity is legendary. That his asininity has reached museum-worthy levels.
Someone who found himself (that’s what happens mostly in Nigeria: people find themselves in posts they have no business in) in the position of a spokesman to a seating president felt it was appropriate to use that image, the one above, to describe a woman’s vagina and attempt an illustration on virginity.
This is Nigeria, we have made it a duty and a habit to always tell grown-ups what to do with their private parts and their lives so a lot of things no longer surprise me.
But a 44-year-old ‘lawyer’ and ‘author’ attaining this level of bê·tise? I find myself occasionally shocked.
Well done, Reno Omokri, you got me there.
