Nardos Osterhart Tells Her Own Jokes

This week's humor is brought to you by a woman who gets invited to tell jokes in public. We are proud to share snippets of a comedy routine that Nardos performed live in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

What's So Funny?

Many Americans think of Africa as a country, rather than a continent of 47 nations (plus 6 more coastal island countries).  Here, at the Sunday Night Funnies, she makes fun of this misconception.

She jokes that Africa is not the small high school from the television show Glee, where everyone knows everyone else.

Alan advises Americans how to be global citizens and expats how to fit in to Michigan culture without annoying their native coworkers and clients. He also tweets and blogs at the intersection of language and culture. Over decades, he's traveled, studied, or lived on six continents, putting strange foods into his mouth and emitting strange sounds from it. His use of English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Swedish, Hausa, and Japanese all improve with alcohol use. He gives invited public presentations on culture and unsolicited private advice on English grammar and usage; the latter isn't always appreciated.
