A BOY'S FIRST LESSON IN FUFU POUNDING

One day, a boy who had never pounded fufu in his life was learning to do so from a woman who got her mortar ready and was about to pound the fufu. Before they started, the woman gave the following instructions:

"Boy, anywhere I put the morsel, hit there hard with the pestle, do you hear?"

"Yes madam," the boy said, rearing to go.

So they started.

The boy obeyed the instructions to the letter. Anywhere she put the piece, he hit the spot with the pestle. That went on for sometime and things were progressing nicely. Then in the course of the proceedings, the woman came across a piece of plantain which she fancied; she picked it and instead of placing it in the mortar as she had been doing, she put it in her mouth, and in faithful obedience to her instructions, the boy directed the pestle there too - PANG!!
