make wiseful decisions.

In case all that was too long, boring, and un-funny for you…

The Ugandan government’s HIV/AIDS education initiative includes a component calling for schools to have make “talking compound.” This means that the administration post signs, typically written in all capital letters, with various encouraging and informative messages around the school grounds.  Some predictable ones say things like:

ABSTAIN FROM SEX TO AVOID HIV/AIDS,

CHOOSE GOOD FRIENDS,

AN IDLE MIND IS THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP,

THE STRUGGLE OF TODAY IS THE SUCCESS OF TOMORROW,

and such.

Mature adults that we are, PCVs are amused by some of the more unusual talking compound signs.  Here I will list some collected favorites:

WASH AND DRY YOUR UNDERWEAR IN THE SUN AFTER USE,

BEWARE OF SUGAR MUMMIES, 

MAKE WISEFUL DECISIONS,

DON’T SMEAR PERFUME ON YOUR PRIVATE PARTS,

and

VIRGINITY IS NOT ONLY FOR THE UGLY ONES BUT ALSO FOR YOU.
