This is Mbongo and Jock. Mbongo is Jocks brother from another mother. They’re pretty close. You can tell because they’ve even got similar hair. Mbongo is from Zimbabwe – we worked together there. He’s a good guy so we got him to Ghana.
That is not Jocks real hair (gasp!). Jock is wearing the flower from a Mbongo tree. The tree, a palm, has been recently renamed because it makes anybody look just like Mbongo. We all thought it was pretty funny – but Jock thought it was funniest.
The secret to jocks doppleganger talents are as follows. The flower-thing on the plant needs to:
-be dislodged from the tree (usually by a rainstorm – the only time there is any wind)
-get rained on enthusiastically for a day
-get driven over by a couple of cars (the crucial softening step), and
-shaken for 10 seconds then have the remaining ants flicked off…
…before being plopped on his head.
Nearly forgot! – Jock is the one on the left.
