Follow the leader
PM Marape travelled to Saki village in Goilala, Central yesterday to visit the site of the landslide which buried alive 15 people. He effortlessly walked around the hilly terrain while others, including the bodyguards, tried hard to keep up with him.
Forgotten group
Apparently someone forgot to tell four Huli dancing groups in Western Highlands preparing for PM Marape’s visit that the trip had been cancelled. They had been preparing all night. They are angry – understandably too.
No care
You walk into a bank these days wearing a face mask and no one gives a damn. Yes, the coronavirus has really changed our lives and how we view things, truly.
Loan shark
Times are hard – was how one loan shark phrased it to a potential client when trying to justify the sudden 50 per cent increase in “interest” this year. Client was last seen scratching his head.
Stocking up
Bachelor boy was seen buying packets of cereals and snacks at a supermarket last weekend to take home. He explained that it is his food ration up to the end of the month (next pay). There is a big hole in his pocket and he did not know what created it.
Sign from above
A woman’s prayer, asking for a sign from heaven to show if the man she has a crush one is worth pursuing, was promptly and explicitly answered.
Thought for today
One tree can make a thousand matches but one match stick can destroy thousands of trees. Lesson: One negative thought can erase all positive thoughts.
