Today I learned some very important things about Kurdish culture
Cures for Jaundice:
a. If it is a man, he should sit in a room with other men and they will talk. At some point a woman will come in and sit and talk with the man who has jaundice. She will slap him.
b. If it is a child, he or she should eat small live fish. These fish will swim around in the stomach for a while and the child will be cured.
c. You can also just take the child to look at some fish. If he or she throws coins at the fish, all the better.
Apparently women cannot be cured of jaundice. Sorry, ladies.
This story passes for humor:
There were two couple, one was a young man and woman in a village and the other was a young man and woman in a village. The two in the city met at a local park. When the man arrived, the woman said, “Why didn't you bring me flowers?” The man replied,”You are a flower. What do you need with flowers?”
The village couple met in the village and the woman said, “Oh, my shoe is broken why didn't you bring me new shoes?” The man replied, “You are shoes. What do you need with shoes?”
