Post 548 : Archie of Riverdale & Jughead


I am hoping you grew up living in the dream (squeaky clean) world of Archie, Betty, Jughead and Veronica.

For some reason, I suddenly remembered one of its episodes (books) today. In that digest,  Jughead keeps repeating

“Mustafa Kahin Gehe- nasha” (sounded like that, don’t remember how exactly it was spelt in the book.

When asked eventually what does that mean, Jughead it says that this is age old distilled Middle-East Sufi Wisdom and it means

“Every minute in this world, a sucker is born, and for every sucker born, there are 2 others born to take him.”

Come to think of it, that is indeed timeless wisdom.

On a personal note, my brother used to love repeating this as a truism, even when we had grown into young adults (that is 10+ years later). I wonder if he still remembers that :-)
