I may have weird sense of humor, but it has really made my day, so I just can’t restrain myself from telling you...
As a newly interested in pashto, I start to watch pashto music clips at youtube. I especially liked ‘Yarana’ by Rahim Shah. It has old-school bouncy rhythm that slightly reminds me of music genre called funk. I also knew that there had been a slang word ‘funky’ meaning ‘unusual, but cool’ or – as dictionary.cambridge.org puts it –
a. a style of music, usually for dancing to, with a strong rhythm based on jazz and a tune that repeats itself
b. slang fashionable in an unusual and noticeable way
So a bit mindlessly – becuase it’s neither very unusual nor musically very funky - I commented it writing:
“Funky pashtoon xD
I wanna bounce too...”
Needless to say, one fellow obviously must have misread my comment and here is what he wrote below:
(don’t look if you aren’t fond of offensive language):
did they fuck ur family????
y u wanna fuck pashtun????
One should know that words starting with ‘f’ are dangerous by definition.

Cool, I've always been interested in Kandahari Pashto. In fact this very week I plan on buying a Kandahari Pashto textbook from CeLCAR. (The other one I have is in Kabuli Pashto)
It's a shame that there is a lack of Kandahari Pashto textbooks (and Pashto textbooks in general)!

I'd believe that, for as I understand it, Kandahari Pashto is the 'standard' (and most widely know) dialect in Afghanistan, though based upon what I've read it seems like Kabuli Pashto is making some head way in Afghanistan.
