One day, about a month and a half ago, she she dropped an interesting idea to me for a new website that featured satirical and ironic news and information about Africa and the African Diaspora.
The thing that seemed to trigger this is that she kept seeing bad and depressing news about Africa and African issues on major news websites; nothing upbeat and humorous. We all ways see children with flies in their nostrils, or wars and mass graves. Surly, there are obvious tragic stories we see about Africa almost daily, But is there still not any humor and life to be found somewhere….?

Thus far my wife has written about 95% of the content for this site so when you check it out, note the quality and the quantity of the content presented. So, with out any further ado, I present to you:
