Bad donkey, small wall.


This was a crude translation of a proverb that comedian Karunas (as pointed out by Chriz) made famous in one movie. The Tamil original runs thus, “Kazhutha ketta, kutti suvaru” so you have the translation.

I heard that line somewhere and I wondered especially having heard the translation as to what could have been the origin of the proverb. Any ideas?

PS: I Googled it and did find something.
