Atongo is a house boy who drinks his Boss' wine with impunity then adds water 2 cover his tracks.
His Boss became suspicious & decided 2 buy pasties (a French wine that changes color if u add
water; just like dettol). Unaware of this, atongo, drank from d wine as usual & topped it up with
water. Immediately he added water, d pasties became milky & he knew he was in trouble. When d Boss came back & saw the changed pasties, he

Atongo: No answer.

Atongo then asks, "Who goes into the maid's bedroom when Madam is not at home?" No answer. D boy shouted again: "Boss, I say who dey sneak into d maid's room when madam no dey house?" No answer. The Boss runs back from the kitchen shouting "Wonders shall never cease!
Atongo, It is true o, when one is in the kitchen, one does not hear anything, except one's name."
D wife now very angry, interrupted, "that's not true. It's a lie! Without argument." Atongo asked if she'll enter d magic kitchen 2 be tested. She agreed.
Atongo asks madam, "Who's junior's biological father? Me or d Boss? "Madam rushed out of the
kitchen. "This kitchen needs 2 b fumigated...
