Sarcasm is a language and Nigerian parents speak it fluently. Or at least they used to. Growing up, one of the first things we learned was how to detect the sarcasm in our parents’ words or actions. Every time they gave that look and said “Put it on my head.” we instinctively knew what they really meant. It seems the new generation of Nigeria kids couldn’t be bothered about all of this. God bless their innocent hearts.
This thread I found on Twitter proves this, and it’s one of the most hilarious things I found last week.
