An old blacksmith realized he was going to have to retire soon, so he picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice.

The old fellow had a very stern face and was very demanding. “No ask me plenty questions” he told the boy, “Just dey do anything wey i tell you make you do.”

One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil. “Bring that hammer wey they that corner. When I nod my head, hit it am very well.”

The town is currently looking for a new blacksmith.
