'Vote for Umblerra'

Probably to deal with the stresses associated with next month general elections scheduled for next month–there’s a real threat of terrorist violence and vote rigging is widespread–Nigerians (online especially) are having too much fun at the expense of First Lady, Patience Jonathan, who has a history of mangling her words. An audio recording has emerged of Mrs Jonathan speaking at a rally of the ruling party. She was “trying to persuade her listeners to vote for the ‘Umbrella’, the unmistakable symbol of the Peoples’ Democratic Party. However, she er… well she might have inadvertently done just the opposite.”

  1. I can forgive umblerra- the l/r confusion is "normal" if the first language does not have a distinct "R" (both l/r are pronounced by pressing tongue on a similar place on upper palate – think of East Asians and a similar l/r issues). BUT: lord! what the heck else is she saying? Why is she on a podium sing-songing, and why does she want my attention?
