Big Boy and Akpan

Primary tabs

I am sure in very culture there is that one big oaf that everyone makes fun of. In Jamaica it's Big Boy. Back in the day everyone had a new Big Boy story that was guaranteed for a few laughs. Most of the time his escapades were set in the classroom with Big Boy unwittingly giving the right answer for a question, or making some remark that so silly one just had to laugh. Granted this may not be the best example below, but I am sure you get the picture: Teacher : "Who built the ark?"Other student: "Big Boy, you know?" Big Boy: "Know wha??" (* the patois for 'know what?')Teacher: "That is right, Big Boy, Noah built the ark"I just discovered Akpan, who I guess is the Nigerian Big Boy.
