I was on vacation the last 10 days, and forbidden to watch the news, so I missed this: Trevor Noah had the biggest Oscars joke you didn't get (CNN).
Quote:
Noah, who is South African, joked about knowing the movie's main character, T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman.
"Growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, I would see T'Challa flying over our village, and he would remind me of a great Xhosa phrase," Noah said. "He says 'abelungu abazi uba ndiyaxoka' -- which means, 'In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart.'"
But those who speak Xhosa got a good chuckle, because what Noah actually said is: "White people don't know I'm lying."
Ilshic! (I laughed so hard I cried.)
