One of my Christmas gifts this year was a book called “Hidden Meanings” by Wally Turnbull. It’s a book filled with over 1,200 Haitian proverbs! I don’t believe I’ll be running out of proverbs to share any time soon. J The following one gave me a good laugh over the mental image of a turkey laughing:
Lè y'ap plimen poul kodenn pa ri.
“When the chicken is being plucked, the turkey doesn’t laugh.” Don’t laugh at others’ misfortune, for it could happen to you, too.
