‘Munda Logic’ At Its Very Best — Trying To Push A Truck From Inside!

I saw this on Facebook this morning and it just cracked me up. Judging from the kids it is definitely from Africa.

They are trying to free a truck stuck on an embankment.

One guy is pushing REALLY, REALLY hard while standing on the truck bed.


Immediately reminded me of the phrase ‘Munda Logic‘ from my school days in London.

I attended ‘Mill Hill’ Public School (meaning it was a fee-paying private school) from 1969 to 1971 before they expelled me for being a disruptive influence.

Pretty famous school — the place where the VENERABLE “Oxford English Dictionary” (OED) was born! Yep. Look it up.

The alumni include Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of DNA, and Sir Denis Thatcher, Margaret’s illustrious (2nd) husband.

It was a school with a lot of exposure to the British Empire in its heyday.

There were two expressions that were OFTEN used at the school, during my time, that were pithy, very precise and what today would be called quite racists — though they were not meant to be.

The first was ‘Play the White Man‘. It meant do the right thing. Stiff upper lip and all of that. Basically said, act like a British gentleman. ‘Play the White Man’. I still love and use that phrase. ‘Play the White Man’

The other was ‘Munda Logic’. The above picture is ‘Munda Logic’ epitomized.

‘Munda Logic’ — African Logic!

There was this realization that Africans, at the time, had a different thought process to others. Well, see above.

‘Wog’ was another favorite word. I was a wog — though I really wasn’t. Jesus was a wog — in that wog is specific to men from the Middle East (and NOT the far east).

So, Munda Logic.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, DL, FRS, RA, is my greatest hero, a primary source of inspiration and the symbol of my Britishness. However, this allegation does not shock or scandalize me. To be honest it has crossed my mind at various times too.

I do NOT for a second think that he was exclusively gay (i.e., a ‘raving poofter‘ per good ol’ British Public School speak). He, at worst, was AC/DC (and self-charging batteries as well, given all the time he was on his own).

He was very much a man’s man and spent an inordinate time, due to the careers he pursued, in the sole company of men. He also was a product of the ‘No Girls’ British Public School system, pre-1970s. He attended many BOARDING schools from the time he was very young. I too attended a British boarding school for 2 years — from 1969 to 1971 — before I was expelled for publicizing the amount of ‘improper’ behavior that was taking place between the ‘young’ masters (nearly all from ‘Oxbridge’) and some of the young kids. I was 16 when I started and I was shocked. Most of the boys had been at male-only boarding schools since they were 7 or 8. It was a very male culture. Read between the lines. Winston too was a product of this culture. So I am not shocked.

I do not think he was a misogynist. He was arrogant and pompous. [SMILE] Also, I do NOT think that Clementine was the easiest of wives to live with.

So? This does not alter my opinion and respect was this GREAT man — a TOWERING figure in history. I would not he here writing this in English if NOT for Winston.
