The “I betta pass my neighbour” generator

Fascinating discovery of the day, over Chinese food with a group in Lagos: the most popular electric generator here is called the “I betta pass my neighbour“, alluding to the fact that having one propels you socially above your neighbour who has none. A uniquely Nigerian take on “keeping up with the Joneses“.

You can also apparently direct your exhaust to spew on their house instead of yours.
