‘Munda Logic’ At Its Very Best — Trying To Push A Truck From Inside!

I saw this on Facebook this morning and it just cracked me up. Judging from the kids it is definitely from Africa.

They are trying to free a truck stuck on an embankment.

One guy is pushing REALLY, REALLY hard while standing on the truck bed.

Classic.

Immediately reminded me of the phrase ‘Munda Logic‘ from my school days in London.

I attended ‘Mill Hill’ Public School (meaning it was a fee-paying private school) from 1969 to 1971 before they expelled me for being a disruptive influence.

Pretty famous school — the place where the VENERABLE “Oxford English Dictionary” (OED) was born! Yep. Look it up.

The alumni include Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of DNA, and Sir Denis Thatcher, Margaret’s illustrious (2nd) husband.

It was a school with a lot of exposure to the British Empire in its heyday.

There were two expressions that were OFTEN used at the school, during my time, that were pithy, very precise and what today would be called quite racists — though they were not meant to be.

The first was ‘Play the White Man‘. It meant do the right thing. Stiff upper lip and all of that. Basically said, act like a British gentleman. ‘Play the White Man’. I still love and use that phrase. ‘Play the White Man’

The other was ‘Munda Logic’. The above picture is ‘Munda Logic’ epitomized.

‘Munda Logic’ — African Logic!

There was this realization that Africans, at the time, had a different thought process to others. Well, see above.

‘Wog’ was another favorite word. I was a wog — though I really wasn’t. Jesus was a wog — in that wog is specific to men from the Middle East (and NOT the far east).

So, Munda Logic.

This is a worthwhile, fun & rewarding experience. We took part in the May 2018 ‘Spring Clean Up Day‘ and it was a blast. Since all three of us did the full 4-hour shift we got six free tickets which we have yet to use.

Being around the spectacular Castle is always fun and the staff is ultra nice. In May we also got a very nice, free lunch. Hope the weather is good in November.

You should sign up. You will enjoy it. It is good to support the Castle.
