From stew filled ice cream buckets to using the onion sack as a sponge, African Twitter is back at it again with #YouKnowYouAreAfrican.

Users followed suit touching on saving the meat for last when savoring your dinner, using part of the onion sack as an exfoliating sponge (now you know how our skin is so smooth), stew filled ice cream buckets, plastic bags full of more plastic bags, and more.
