Going nuts - Exhibit A

I've just come across the sad story of a maternity hospital here having to turn away patients for want of experienced staff. Seems they're going through a mid-wife crisis. The management is to blame of course. The director of the hospital bought a large African parrot and one day it escaped from its cage. The staff tried to catch it, but succeeded only in enraging the bird. It bit several people and two elderly nurses died from the resulting complications. The police charged him with killing two crones with one bird. And speaking of the animal kingdom, there was an interesting interview of an elephant tamer. When asked how they manage these powerful animals during the mating season, when the male elephants are known to go berserk, he replied "We do what we musth". Global warming, incidentally, is thawing frozen lakes in the Arctic, endangering, among oother things, an ancient Eskimo practical joke. They scatter peas around a cutout in one of these frozen lakes. When the victim comes to take a pea, the prankster kicks him in the ice hole. Also sad is the cancellation of the Indian cricket tour to Zimbabwe on account of atrocities commited by the Mugabe regime. Of course, this won't be the first time this game has had to be abandoned because of the reign. And finally, Master Gautham feels that the opposite of Barcelona is Andar se lo na.

Good Lord man! Someone needs to do split your brain out and examine its insides. I think you are solely responisble for the fact that 52.6778% of the indian male population doesn't have a sense of humour. You got it all!

"We do what we musth"

Loved it loved it loved it! :D

That was laugh-a-line post. Amazing. It was like stand up comedy. Just that you were not standing up when you wrote it.

Master Gautham feels that the opposite of Barcelona is "Andar se lo na".

I can think of a dirty meaning for this.

Seems you're a 'pun'dit.

Thanks, people! I'm feeling much better already. Especially after the sad news of the recent arrest of a group of Chinese pro-democracy activists. Seems they were betrayed by a colleague named Hsuen. As the headlines said, Hsuen Tsang.

And the disturbing news that Gauri Khan is doing an oil painting of a geometrical railway track pattern on Shahrukh's six pack. She wants to be an abs track painter.

Aww if this is a flipped Uncle R, we never want him straight.

And I am going to try standing on my head to see if I can get such inspirational jokes.

ylenol said...

ok now my intensions are not to make u wonder wat kind of a creep i am....or why i am asking totally weird questions....but since u write so well, i was wondering wat u read (besides the newspaper, the wall street journal and the likes of that) ?
If u read anything remotely interesting, I would like to read that stuff too... :)
Yesss...i am totally lonely and un-loved ...just like u ...which explains why i have nobody to ask about which books they read except for people without faces on the internet :)

i told him "i'm broke"...
he replied, "so what? i'm broker!"
