The jollof wars and the verdict of Mark Zuckerberg

His words, “Yesterday, I had jollof rice and shrimp. It was delicious, fantastic. I was told not to compare Nigeria’s jollof rice to that from other neighbouring countries.”
While he did not say Nigeria has won the battle, Nigerians did not care, they took to Twitter to celebrate this significant victory.
Since I do not own a company, you know I am sincere in stating Nigerian jollof rice is the very best.  Here is a short video Jollof Wars: Ghana vs. Nigeria.  Here is the debate on Quora.

Guy who had the novel idea of a site for rating his female classmates’ hotness is now a billionaire and a world thought leader. Truly his opinions on Nigerian rice are to be dissected and celebrated!

His pre-billionaire business associates and current neighbors seem to think he’s a prick; that’s intel enough for me.

He betrayed his Brazilian friend Eduardo Saverin, who was the real mind behind Facebook. Foreigners robbed Facebook, Walkmen, Radio, the Pion, the typewriter, the computer and the airplane from us!

Don’t forget football (soccer). Brazilians brought it to a reasonable level (1958 through 1970); it was then brought to its pinnacle by Argentina, especially under the incomparable Maradona (incidentally a nutcase far left Castroite); and now the Germans and Spaniards seem to be doing it well.

Maradona was an usurper. The greatest players of his time was Zico, Sócrates, Falcão, Alemão, Silas e Romário.

Indentured servants, yes – slaves, no.

too,
“…rating his female classmates…”

A puerile beginning for sure.

“…current neighbors…”

I thought he was on a campaign to buy all the homes around his in order to have no neighbors. Certainly a self-assured prick. One of our latest juvenile masters of the universe. What ever happened to the influence of wise old people?

They haven’t been around for a while.

Bill Gates was considered a petulant child by the judge (and a *lot* of other people) in the 2000 monopoly case. Steve Jobs? Mr. temper tantrum, uber narcissist. Larry Ellison – at least he makes the first two seem normal.

And Zuckerberg seems like a perfectly normal silicon valley multi billionaire to me.

I doubt this rice can hold a candle to Brazilian rice and beans.

Jollof Rice isn’t that good, it really isn’t.

It’s the Chinese LDPE, as opposed the HDPE traditionally found in Nigerian jollof rice, that makes all the difference.

I grinned, but most people here would need to google your DPEs.

The debate is entertaining but neither tomatoes nor onions come from Ghana or Nigeria.

This might be the least interesting piece of information ever communicated.

There is one interesting piece of information here. This jollof rice is, I assume, hallal. But it is not kosher. Shrimp are acceptable for Muslims but not for Jews.

So Zuckerberg does not observe kosher food rules. He is not mildly religious.

Hey, quality over quantity. Happy New Year, gentlemen! See you on the flip side, jollof rice be damned!

Have you considered popping into Cotonou to see what the African School of Economics guys are up to?

Yeah but how do we know that you don’t have a lot of money invested in Nigerian hospitality industry ETFs?

With a 7% dividend yield, I’d appreciate that nudge.
