    Ya, no, the ukulele is Hawaiian, stop being diminutive and bigoted.

    You can actually play a variety of other Portuguese or Spanish instruments, but none of them will be the ukulele.

    And neither are stringed instruments European in origin. They come from Babylon, Persia, Mesopotamia, etc. You're welcome to go refer to the lute or lyre as origins and source material as well.

    And all Curry comes from the Indian Subcontinent. And you're correct in your assertion that there are different curries in different regions. The ukulele is as unique to instruments as Thai curry is to Curry. It wouldn't make any sense to say you know something about real Thai or Massaman or Japanese curry because you can make some type of Indian curry. They're not even recognizable as similar dishes. Nobody would call them similar. It's 100% Thai, though a long time ago some Indian Buddhists brought some similar source dish to the Angkorian region along with Buddhism.

    It seems like you are the one being bigoted. My mind is open and yours is closed. If someone doesn't agree with what you say, you try to bully them into accepting your opinion. The fact is, no one knows why they say "my dog has fleas" and no one know exactly why the ukulele is called a ukulele. There are many explanations, but no one knows which one is correct. You can bring up curry or lutes, lyres or Babylon, Persia or Mesopotamia, or whatever you want. You won't convince me without proof, and there is none to support your claims. Just because you want it to be true or you believe it is true doesn't make it true. Stop being such a bigoted bully. You said a while back that you were done with this topic I invite you to keep your promise.

    Fascinating.

    On the other hand, rather than pretending to be the world's worst Anthropologists, we could actually just go by what the most local and native stories of the indigenous peoples with the most knowledge of the culture are. That's mostly Na Po'e Ke Kuahiwi.

    Or let's just make our own stuff up like some bigoted foreigners with a superiority complex, and make up our own stories because, well let's face it, nobody who knows talks to you. When you see one of the Hawaiians who might know pass by, your eyes glaze over, the flowers to your opposite side become supremely interesting until they pass you completely by, whilst a small part of you hopes your flip flops weren't flipping or flopping too loudly to be taken seriously.

    Honestly, your whining can almost be plucked out in G-C-E-A

    From now on, GCEA is going to just be "Mike is Whining"

    So just forget everything else

    Well, I guess you think this hurts my feelings. Grow up. The story I have chosen to believe was suggested by a real Hawaiian, Queen Lili’uokalani. You don't want to believe her, she was around when ukes first came to Hawaii. It seems like she has more info than you, but you choose to set it aside saying, words mean something different to her than to the rest of the people. That sounds fishy, so I don't buy it. I have no idea if you are even Hawaiian. For all I know you're a Japanese guy pretending to be Hawaiian. I really don't care. I am not telling anyone to believe what I do. Why can't you accept that you may be wrong? There is no proof one way or another. As far as why they say "My Dog Has Fleas", your entire explanation is conjecture. So you might as well say "Mike is whining" - it makes just about as much sense...but you, for some reason, think you know everything about anything Hawaiian. You are welcome to, but I'm not buying it.

    You know, this was a really interesting thread before the two of you started at it.

    Apparently, this forum lacks moderators. So, let me say what EVERYONE else is thinking: DROP IT! Send each other nasty private messages. We don't need to hear it.
    What could possibly go wrong?
