so, this hill in new zealand has landed in the Guinness Book of world record for having one of the longest names in the world.
are ya read for it?
yes. that’s the name.
no i’m not kidding.
It’s the maori version of the name and it means:
the summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one. <— how di man knee drop een?
tek een di pronunciation <—i know i heard her say thai muthaf*cka. I KNOW IT. you listen
that’s not the longest version of the name. That is a measly 85 letters long.
Taumata-whakatangihanga-koauau-o-Tamatea-haumai-tawhiti-ure-haea-turi-pukaka-piki-maunga-horo-nuku-pokai-whenua-ki-tana-tahu, has 105 letters and means The hill of the flute playing by Tamatea — who was blown hither from afar, had a slit penis, grazed his knees climbing mountains, fell on the earth, and encircled the land — to his beloved
a me one see di part bout him penis. now i am not here to bring down other people’s cultures, but if your penis is slit, might that not be a venereal disease? and did we really have to immortalise the man business like that?<–yeh, i know, cultural differences, please climb down from your anthropological high horse, i don’t need the sermon
him couldn’t just tek some pill and move on like everybody else? somebody inna di community never like him and decide fi put him pon blast fi all eternity. now that’s bitterness. maybe the beloved who him a blow flute to. i suspect some bun was involved. and not even digging off his knees and walking his feet to bloody stumps could melt her heart. hush me bwoy. it rough
all who think they’re interesting because they come from gimme-me-bit or balaclava
