Well If I am back in Zimbabwe or South Africa, I mean a traffic light.

After my trip back home today, I was reminded of another Southern African phrase: a Monkey's Wedding. This expression describes the condition of simultaneous sunshine and rain. My Argentinean friend told me that the equivalent expression in Spanish is a "Monk's Wedding". If true, that is a remarkable coincidence.

In addition to the primate festivitiy there were dual rainbows. I have never seen that.

@mhrackin: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," NOT the beheld! Also nor the behind.

My wife says my behind is one of my best features...

Hang on! I always took that as a complement, but now I come to think about it... LOL

@david: My guess is those are special pants to wear while browsing (the web?).

@max: re "admiring stares": I believe the saying is "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," NOT the beheld! Also nor the behind.

@r3son8trbluz: "In addition to being great to play with oneself" [...] sometimes it isn't.

Don't leave us hanging -- please provide examples :-)
