That India was banned from Olympics because they always use juju to easily win every competition. Only much latter did I learn they were not banned - they simply never qualify for Olympics!

Was told to throw up tooth on the roof and bury down tooth in the ground but if a lizard swallow you tooth it will never grow again and a toothless old woman was always the example.


If someone stretches out his or her arm and youboass underneath you will never grow and a dwarf is always an example


We were always too careful not to break any law

It's actually, if you look me up and down cheesy. Meaning, if you look him up and down, you will know that he's truly a doctor.

That if you stand on a rock/stone,you won't grow tall again.

Answering your name when you thought that someone is calling you is a taboo.

When you are walking and saw a drawn line on your way, don't cross it. Look for another way to pass. Your destiny will be destroyed if you do.

Mrs.koikoi, and her infamous shoe, the pretty teacher that died and her ghost was haunting the community school (I nearly died of fear because of this one grin)

The India and Nigeria match. 100-1 grin. I think everyone was served this lie with hot peppersoup and chilled drink cheesy

Lol! That last one is so popular. You won't believe some of my colleagues in the Uni till last week believed this. lol
They even believed that was when Okparaji died cos he kicked a ball that turned to stone.

Why do you want to commit adultery?
It is sin against God and man.
Why do you think your life will go without negative consequences if you do such?

Spitting is just a dirty habit and they wanted you not to do it. Simple.

Swallow the seeds of a fruit and watch it germinate from your head.
My late grandpa told me that one after I swallowed an orange seed, I cried for days imagining myself standing arms outstretched as an orange tree for the rest of my life. I was 6 then, he died 2 years later, still cry whenever I remember that episode.
