Test post

Whenever I take any firm, decisive action about something, I generally find myself with my ass in a sling, to use a technical term.

Not when I got married, of course. That turned out fabulously, though I haven't won a single debate since, but that's beside the point.

What I was saying is that all this is just yada yada yada to test out if I've managed to get the Disqus comment engine out of this blog.

Probably not, because I'm pretty much a moron in these things.

I wasn't born that way.  O no, sirree! I had to work hard at it. SOmewhere along the way, I joined up an MBA course, which helped immensely, but it was mostly just hard work.

Why would I want to become a moron, you might ask.

You moron.

Don't you know that only morons succeed in life? Look at the world around you.

Though it must be said that it is not a sufficient condition, just a necessary one.

Meaning that you have to be a moron in order to succeed, but being a moron is no guarantee of success.

If you got that, you're going to have to work harder.

At being a moron, I mean.

Hey, it worked! Got 'Disqus' out!

Oops. Does that mean I'm not a moron?

Rats. Need to work harder

rads said...

heh, but you're right Naren. The morons are taking over. You see them everywhere! ..and hence numbers win. *sigh.

Just keep trying, you'll get there. When you do, write us a cheat sheet? ;-)

Bea Walker said...

I vote for -not- a moron....I like the change to format...Disqus was too distracting...

Idling in Top Gear said...

This interface is much better. Thank you. Clearly those morons at Diqus don't make their product too smart-people friendly. :D

What's In A Name!? said...

Yay!! i am glad you got rid of that disqus thing - whose brainwave was it to have it here in the first place?

maxdavinci said...

By calling yourelf a moron youa re insultting all teh fan associations of balayya and vijaykanth. They have exclusive rights to it and tattoo the words on themselves!

SRK said...

glad to have this back... was wishing u'd stick to the 'if it ain't broken, don't fix it' motto :)

Siddharth said...

@rads -:-D Cheatsheet! Step 1 for becoming moronic - Read blogs like "Autobiography of an ordinary man"!

@Bea - You know, I thought it was kind of nice, the Disqus thing I mean, but I turned out to bein a minority of one. EVeryone seems to hate it

@Idling - You too! There goes your chance of marrying the Disqus founder's daughter.

@What's - Another Disqus basher! At this rate, the founder of Disqus is going to be even lower in popularity ratings than the redoubtable Amar Singh. The brainwave was mine. I get these inspirations from time to time. Mrs Shenoy has a lot to say on the topic.

@max - You are too kind! Thankee!

@SRK - There you go! Disqus couldn't be less popular if it was Mulayam Singh and we the Bahujan Samaj Party

@Siddharth - LOL @ Disqusting! And @ More on Moron!

Gradwolf said...

Hahaha, even your naam ke vaaste fillers are so funny narenji.

P.S

This one always works:

What do you get when you put Narenji in a room full of Oxygen?

Oxymoron.

Now you can subtitute Narenji with anyone :p

Ram said...

That was a Vanilla Vats-isuqe post.

And you just echoed Dilbert principle

Partho said...

Err, Naren, I didn't see the disqus thingy at all. Reading your last few inimitable groaner posts, I just laughed a groany laugh, and for want of suitable repartee, kept it at that. Suppose it was not a good thing, disqus, judging by all the popularity.
Define moron.

Bhel Puri & Seekh Kabab said...

Very quick response to the customer service comments left by max & me. Thanks, but it proves only one thing - you got to work harder at this moron thing.
