This month Nairobi Now teams teamed up with Blankets & Wine, to give you the chance of winning a few tickets for their first wonderful concert of the year.

From Wednesday February 22nd to Thursday March 1st, every day (apart from the weekend) we gave away one ticket to a lucky member of the Nairobi Now community. Congratulations to all the winners, and we’ll make sure to have more free tickets for upcoming shows.

But now, we just all look forward to Blankets & Wine on Sunday..
In preparation for the gig, enjoy QWERTY Love by Anto, who will be performing at the March 4th B&W!

    So, am just gonna make you laugh…..coz i really want that ticket.Here goes…….

    A Glaswegian is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptising people in the river.

    He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher….

    The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon he asks the drunk, “Are you ready to find Jesus?”

    The drunk shouts, “Aye, I am.”

    So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water.

    He pulls him up and asks the drunk, “Brother have you found Jesus?”

    The drunk replies, “No, Ah havnae found Jesus.”

    The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer.

    He again pulls him out of the water and asks again, “Have you found Jesus me brother?”

    The drunk again answers, “No, Ah havnae found Jesus.”

    By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again — but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up.

    The preacher again asks the drunk, “For the love of God have you found Jesus?”

    (Are you ready for this????)

    The drunk wipes his eyes, catches his breath and splutters:

    “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”

    A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years. He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young couple in bed.
    He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair, while tying the girl to the bed he gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom.
    While he’s in there, the husband tells his wife: “Listen, this guy’s an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn’t seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck.” If he wants s*x, don’t resist, don’t complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he’ll k*ll us. Be strong, honey. I love you.”
    To which his wife responds: “He wasn’t kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked me if we had any vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you too!!”

    I saw the section “we will be picking the funniest entry..” and immediately I say to myself..”GREAT! i cannot joke to save my life!!!” but its blankets & wine right? so screw that, i owe it to myself to try…my colleague, sitting right next to me then tries to ask me something (not work related of course), I turn and look at him with a zombie kinda look in my face, just completely stoned out, brain frozen, everything standstill just trying to think of something funny to say!!!…he looks at me and apologetically says …”gawwwwwsh Renee, you are slower that a snail on crutches!!”
    I should have killed him (believe me I know) but I just burst out into pangs of laughter..thinking to me-self that this mo’fucker may have just won me a ticket!!!!!!

  • 16. Kriskin  |  February 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    #YouKnowYouAreBrokeWhen you go for blankets and wine and instead of a blanket an a bottle of wine, you bring a handkerchief and a small bottle of kibao 😛

    A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!”

    The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – i’ll hold your monkey for you…
    So, i told the woman, “relax,cover your baby with a Blanket and let her sip some Wine, and you’ll both be fine…” Well, she smiled…

    But now, i need a ticket to attend, and have the great feeling of #Blankets and Wine#….mad luv..

  • 25. Monica Guya  |  February 26, 2012 at 9:44 am

    My most embarrassing moment was a few days ago. I’m a campus student and on Mondays i normally have a 25 hour day because i have lectures from 8 in the morning till 5 in the evening. Usually am worn out by the last lecture which starts @ 2p.m. we’re like 100 in this class and it’s really tiny, there were so many factors which then led to me sleeping in the class. The lecturer noticed and asked everyone to leave the class quietly without waking me up. I continued sleeping all of a sudden i heard, “Monica can you answer that question,.” I woke up really fast and found myself alone, eyes wide open, drool on my books, hand, and i was really a sight to see. A whole 99 students laughed at me and from then on am known as ule dame alikuwa anamwaga mate kwa class!
