Okay, people, we Nepalis love fart jokes the best. So, when you are having conversations— trying hard to be likeable and funny—someone just lets out few syllables of ha-has and he-has that instantly makes you wonder if they are laughing at your joke, or they are laughing at you?
Hence, here are some pro tips and cues to let you know how we Nepalis communicate our approvals and disappointments through our laughters.
1 The Maskinu
This is your crush’s way of crushing your soul, one smile a time. You’ll never know if s/he is into you or not. Never! *Sigh*
2 The Just-Musukka
The Half-baked Disapproval.
They don’t even want to make an effort, but are polite while they break your spirit. That is how bad the situation is.
3 The Khitka Chhodnu
The Masked Disapproval.
They laugh at your jokes in full volume, but in the back of their head they are laughing at you.
4 The Gajrinu
The Khula-Dil Walla Approval.
This is Nepali version of all caps HA-HA-HAs. If a woman has this laugh, marry her. This woman laughs from within and doesn’t hold back. If it is a man, RUN!
5 The Rawan Laugh
The ‘Will Murder You Soon’.
This is how Bu-Ha-Ha sounds in Nepali, had it been laughed by Mogambo. #SaveYourself
6 The Kichkanni Laugh
‘The Evil Personified’.
If Satan squeaked, this is how he would sound. If a woman has this laughter, is wearing white, has her face covered with hair, you are already 3 cues late. #RunForYourLife
7 The Khi-ti-ti Khi-ti-ti Garne
The Ultimate Agreement.
This is the best kind of laughter, where they are not just laughing with you but plotting with you as well. #PartnersInCrime
8 The He-He Matra
The Judge-y Disapproval.
When someone just utters two syllable, pack your jokes and run because they are judging you and your life while you spill your rotten funny beans.
9 The Pet Dukhyo
Only your BFF will say this when laughing at your pathetic jokes. This kind of laughter may lead to breathlessness and teary eyes as well.
10 The Constipated Laugh
Nepalis call it 'Kanera Hasnu'.
This only happens when a Haakim jokes. I will leave it to you to judge this one, while your boss is standing with your appraisal sheet. All the best.
