Naija Professor vs Englishman

Written by NaijaEcash

Topics: Ramblings

I got this funny joke by email from my friend, Dot2Power . If you are not a Nigerian, it might not sound so funny. The joke is about a non-English professor trying to show-off his mastery of English language by using difficult words in place of simple ones. Enjoy!

Caution – Please Look for a Dictionary Before Reading 😉

Moral of the joke – KISS (Keep It Simple and Short). Those difficult words might make a good impression in your PhD Thesis, but definitely not in the ear of a Nigerian Entrepreneur like me. Time is money. Why must I spend time checking dictionary before I can understand what you are saying 😉
