Speaking of languages, recently I found two interesting sites.

Peribahasa Banjar lists (in alphabetical category) proverbs in Banjar. This is a language spoken in the southern part of Borneo. I do know how many millions people speak this language, but in all cases I am happy that I can still understand it (thought it starts to fade away with time). And proverbs are always interesting.

On the other hand, Guyonon Suroboyo collects funny (Warning: extremely funny) jokes, of course only if you can understand Suroboyoan, a strikingly marvelous dialect of Javanese (the human language, not that programming one) spoken mostly in West East Java. Pity that the site is not updated anymore. And I reckon that most of the jokes become less funny if they get translated :-)

West Java? It should be East, I suppose.
