Remember those ridiculous rumours that went around when you were in school? PNC’s tweet yesterday cracked me up, because it reminded me of the crazy shit that would get spread around. Who knows where those stories came from:
How about how Layzie Bone was part Samoan and 2Pac was Tongan?? um, LOL, yep I heard those ones. I love how we have a fascination or habit of convincing ourselves that every famous person MUST have a bit of Islander or Maori in them. But you know, being that us Polynesians are pretty choice it’s only natural to assume that every other cool person on the planet has some islander in them too haha.
I remember when I was living in the Cook Islands, the rumour-mill went into overdrive that Michael Jackson was going to hold a concert on Rarotonga. All us kids were pretty excited. But now I’m like, wtf were we thinking? Michael Jackson actually holding a concert in Raro in the early 90′s…that’s a Tui billboard right there. What’s the funniest/most ridiculous thing you heard growing up??
