Help!

Recently, I have been askin different questions. Blogsville residents are the best. I'm not done yet people. biko nu, help a sister out.

This friday, the [somewhat-inactive] African Stud. Assoc. in my school want to have a mini-show. So, Yinkuslolo has to do something. I will talk about the African student transition to an American university and talk about the Nigerian(read:African) experience.

Why? because I am funny, even unintentionally. I don't know the humor these folks see in me but imma do something anyway.

If you have anything to share, pls, leave a comment about it.

Anything like,
Myths about Nigerians?
You know you're African[/Nigerian], when you _____?
If you study in the US[or anywhere abroad], what are your [funny] transition memories/encounters.

Even a link to some online information will be appreciated.
This week is crajjeeee mehn, my Beast mode is in full swing definitely.

Help me with suggestions abeg! Thanx in adv.

That should be interesting. You can talk about going to McDonalds, pointing to the menu and asking for 'Chicken and chips'.. Hahahaha
I have mad 'you know you are African' type of jokes but my brain is blank right now.
