Funny Facts About Your Country
Posted 17 April 2013 - 03:19 PM
A popular game for kids in Japan is called 'kancho.' They put their hands together in the shape of a gun, and try to shove their hands up another kid's butt. People find this to be funny, and it's basically allowed, and not considered sexual harassment. Kancho means 'enema' in Japanese. Luckily, I have avoided being Kancho'ed... so far.
Parents often give their kids names in Mongolia which would be very confusing to people. Examples are "nergui" - no name, "hunbish" - not human, "enebish" - not this one, or "muunohoi" - bad dog. They often do this when they lost a previous child, traditionally believing that if they give their child a bad name, evil will not be attracted to it.
What are some of the silly, unique, or interesting things people do in your country?

I didn't know that Sweden had such awesome traditions. All I knew was that everyone pronounces "sju" differently, and that Timbuktu is a brilliant rapper.
In Sweden we celebrate midsummer by dressing up a pole with flowers. Then we jump like frogs around it while singing we are small frogs....

In the dominican republic, boys start at an early age to play "Vitilla." It's a baseball game. The only difference is that they play with a bottle cap instead of the actual baseball! Just thought I'd share that!
Great post by the way!

If we're talking about sports...
In Mongolia, the national sports are Wrestling (Mongolian Sumo), Archery, and Horse Racing. All of the jockeys are kids.
There's an old Mongolian tale that says there was a woman who disguised herself as a man and entered the wrestling competition, and that she defeated all of the men. Since then, they have a wrestling costume with sleeves, but an open chest. It's called zodog shuudag, and it looks like this:

to Jamaica by Captain Bligh(Ackee official name is Bligha Sapida), its very good but must be cooked
properly only by those who knows how to.
A new Airline for Jamaica was recently launched starting off small with flights from the NY area & soon
Florida the airline name is FLY JAMAICA, hopefully it will become a success and be another fantastic airline.
Please support them if you can.
There's the Blue Mountain Peak 7400 ft and this area is where our coffee comes from, also this area boost many
health and day spas where most visitors enjoys a one of a kind massage by professionals who are licensed.
The kids have/had many games Dandy Shany, Jacks, Snakes & Ladders, Baseball, Simon says just to name a few.
Most older Jamaicans will not light a stove to cook on Good-Friday (its a lent holiday) but fishes are fried
and prepared for meal that day after church, even those that are not regular worshipers tend to go to church
Good Fridays, Easter Sundays and New years Sunday , many eat no meat during lent. A large portion of Jamaicans
does not eat pork, while some like myself Loves Pork.
