Ja

When visiting South Africa, Daniel the Englishman asked a South African “Why is it that some South Africans say ‘Ja’ (pronounced as “ya”) while others say ‘Yes’ if they both have the same meaning?”

“Clever people say ‘Yes’ while stupid people say ‘Ja’,” was the South African’s reply.

“So, are you clever?” asked Daniel.

“Ja,” replied the South African.
