THE USE IN POPULAR CULTURE

The name came to prominence during the Match between Black stars of Ghana and the something something of Uruguay in the ongoing world cup in South Africa, during which a last minute (literally) goal was caught by Luis Alberto Suarez Diaz of Uruguay who having run up and down the pitch as a striker/midfielder/defender had suddenly become a goal keeper. He was subsequently red carded and kick off the pitch by the Kayas-wearing Referee.

The ensuing penalty in favour of the Ghanaians was taken by Asamoah Gyan who missed it because he was pre-occupied with scoring and leaping off to dance in front of the crowd that he actually could not gauge properly.

That penalty missed resulted in the Ghanaian team subsequently losing to the Uruguayans in a penalty shootout after 120min of play tying at 1-1 goal on both sides.


Since That time Suarez, as the entity otherwise known as Luis is popularly called in Ghana because of the inscription at the back of his jersey, has become a household name in Ghana and Ghanaians have not been economical with their curses on him. People sleep cursing, eat cursing, walk cursing and ...all the motion curses you can think of.

But Pleasant is the desire by some ardent supporters of the Black stars of Ghana to have this infamy recorded in the annals of history that they have voted me, in collaboration with Wikipaedia and many other such Encyclopedias and dictionaries to form words out of his name to be memorized and recited for all generations.


SECOND WORD

KAITA (KAI-ta)




(Vb) a self orchestrated dumb action that changes the course of one's life. Eg, The Anagorians saw their future KAITAed before their very eyes and couldn't do Jack about it. Syn - None

For security reasons the least said about this word the better. But I have been hinted that the act that precipitated the word is so grave that is can actually cause those who learn deep into it some serious physchological problems and suffice it is to leave it like this.
