Not sure if anyone is familiar with Brer Anansi, actually a character from Ghanaian folklore. Very witty and smart. I grew up listening to Brer Anansi stories and idolized him, memory loss has taken it's toll, cant even remember one, don't ever hear anyone mentioning Brer Anasi anymore.

Anansi Stories? Stories told about the Anancy. This was extremely popular among Jamaicans of all ages. As a child, these stories were told at bedtime. The late "Miss Lou" was famous for telling these stories. "Anansi Stories" is now phrased by Jamaicans when referring to information given that is not true.
