Dona€™t Take Any Wooden Nickels

Slang from the 1920s.

- a Model T; after 1928, could mean any old broken down car
Flapper - A stylish, brash, hedonistic young woman with short skirts & shorter hair
Dapper - a Flappera€™s dad
Get a wiggle on - get a move on, get going
Giggle Water - An intoxicating beverage; alcohol
Hayburner - (1) a gas guzzling car (2) a horse one loses money on
Heebie-Jeebies - The jitters
High-Hat - To snub
Hit on all sixes - to perform 100 per cent; as a€oehitting on all six cyclindersa€A

"Geez, look at the hayburner on that straight flapper."
-"Yeah son, hittin’ on all sixes, nahmean.AA I’d even get a wiggle on with her daddy inAAa flivver!"
"What? You must be on that giggle water my ninja, ya givin me the heebie-jeebies with that old high-hat nonsense you spittin."
-"Ay man, I’m just tryna stay dapper."

Um… I get the feeling I’m using the slang wrong.

Indian Serial Brides

It’s almost that frequent for Parwinder Kaur- playing the husband game, over and over again.

"Beant Singh claimed he had given her 300,000 rupees (about C$7330) for the marriage in the hopes he could follow her to Canada as her husband.AA He had pawned family jewelry, mortgaged property and taken a loan for the wedding."

Now this is so ninjarish, but oh so clever.AA One can’t really complain about simple ingenuity, now, can he?

My Ninja, Please! 10/10/06: No Spanish Witches in this town

We here at MNP like to encourage reading [as you may have noticed, we’ve even got you reading right now]. Especially important though are the younger ninjas, what with TV and videogames sucking up all their attention. So, while maybe not really the illest of books [I’m a Tolkien fan myself], the Harry Potter series seems like a good thing. Kids put down the remote control and pick up a book, stretch the imagination a little…no harm done. That is, unless you’re from Georgia [aparently], where a mother from the suburbs of Atlanta is trying to get the books banned from the library/schools, as they encourage Wicca and evil, blah blah blah.

Luckily, the schoolboard feels this is extreme, and would force them to ban other books containing witches and magic, so its a no go.

But theres more. Earlier this year residents of the same town convinced the library board to do away with the $3,000 set aside for Spanish language books. Why, you ask? Well they felt that reading material shouldn’t be provided to people who might be illegal immigrants [because, if you didn’t know, all Spanish speakers are fence jumpers].

While this decision was reversed, I think it stands as proof that yokels shouldn’t be involved in politics, democracy or not.

Role Reversal

"China’s hunger for raw materials and energy is driving new investment across Africa, with trade between China and the continent up more than 300% since 2000 to more than $40 billion a year. China is the main market for Sudan’s oil. It has invested in Nigerian oil, provided oil-rich Angola with a $2-billion loan with easy terms and improved relations with Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwean regime, which is criticized by economists and human rights activists."
