There are many things one should not try.

Having a running pee at a rolling donut is one.

In my competition weightlifting days, the coach loaded up the bar for me.

Me: “I don’t think I can lift that weight.”

Coach: ‘Think positively!’

Me: “I know I can’t lift that weight. There, is that positive enough for you?”

BTW. I lifted the weight. But. I think I have too much imagination, to have ever been a top athlete.

I guess if you have a nicely polished whatever, one would not want the plebians smearing their grotty little fingers all over it.

I would have used Leahey, because of the Leahey Bros. (PNG)

Actually it is a good story. They planted the coffee when the market was high. When the crop came in the ar$e had fallen out of the market. The highland villagers; no kisim save bilong “World markets”. So, in typical manner, they went beserk.

@James above. That was the personnel report: This person expects little of themselves, and constantly fails to achieve it.

@Marum 6:36 : I don’t know much about that language, but I assume “olgeta samting” means “I will benefit from”. “kisim save” er… (something) understand? The rest pretty much makes sense.

There must be a “has beans” joke in that story, but nah, I won’t try.

@DNT; PNG Tokisin Kisim save = understand. Olgeta samting = everything. ie. Moto mekanic i kisim olgeta samting long ka. I like the lower case “i”. (pronounced e as in he) Tokpisin does not have the definite article “I” (Capital I) https://www.tokpisin.info/tok-pisin-to-english/b/page/7/ That is a damn good dictionary.Must read it myself. Mi lusim tingting long Tokpisin. (I am forgetting about Tokpisin. a.e.i.o.u. = ah. eh. ee. or. oo. And you can fly from there. The pronunciation is basically phonetic..

This Aussie bloke is on holidays in Switzerland. That night over a couple of good ales, he is eyeing off both the Landlord’s wife, and daughter. (Both fair and comely as one might say) Anyway, the landlord draws him aside, and tells him that his wife is out of bounds, but as his daughter is of age, if they wish to form a liaison, that is her choice. So. He spends all night with the daughter. Next morning he wakes up early, and thinks; “When in Switzerland do as the Swiss do”. So he climbs the nearest hill, and does… Read more »

If I’m reading the Chinese right, the translation is close to:
“You don’t want to (even) TRY eating (this)!”
