Abstract: The article provides an overlook on Somali culture and sense of humour, how they use it and in which forms (riddles, stories, satire, jokes and banter), how it sheds light on Somali society and its sense of identity. The article provides the translation and explanation of seven 'jocular folktales', humourous anecdotes with a didactic message.
Maqaalku wuxuu si kooban uga hadlayaa dhaqanka iyo kaftanka Soomaalida, sida ay Soomaalidu u adeegsato kaftanka iyo qaabbkiisa (xalxiraal, sheeko, kaftan isdhaafsasho). Waxaa kaloo maqaalkan ku dhex jira tarjumaad lagu sameeyay toddoba sheeko kaftameed oo ay sidaan farriin waxbarasho.
L'articolo fornisce un'introduzione sulla cultura e il senso dell'umorismo somalo, come i somali lo utilizzano e in quali forme (indovinelli, storie, satira, scherzi e scambi di battute), come il suo impiego getta luce sulla società somala e il relativo senso identitario. L'articolo contiene inoltre la traduzione di sette 'racconti spiritosi', ossia aneddoti umoristici che presentano un intento didattico.
