Ifs (about X'mas) and buts (about butt)

Barf: “Happy Holidays”…If you are getting gooey about Santa, shopping for X’mas presents and getting the tree and the mistletoe ready, then stop this baloney about non-religious specific terminology. You are celebrating Christmas, so stop all the ooh, I don’t believe in all this…

The same applies to any other festival. At least in our subcontinent we don’t have these pretensions. This whole Happy Holidays thing started to keep the Jews happy, and the Jews decide what Santa and the Republican candidate in America looks, sounds and feels like. So, have a good one.

Barf: Saving the environment…Will Smith is very concerned about cleaning his butt and the environment. No, he is not letting it out in the open - hey, who would get excited at the sight of someone doing it out?. It makes me feel really sad when I think that in my country there are several poor people who have to do so…and the women come out after dark, some bring along umbrellas to cover their faces…

Mr. Smith has got a fancy Japanese loo which not only disposes of bodily waste but also cleans the waste-carrier. Said Will, “They're paper free. Wherever you sit on the toilet, somehow it hits the bull's eye perfectly. It cleans and then dries you. It is just water and then air."

So he is saving paper but wasting water. And what happens when he travels? Does he carry it with him?

How much more does the West have to learn from us…what we have been doing for centuries, these guys make it sound like Columbus on a discovery trail. Piss off.

  2. Thanks for the perceptive feedback...

    May I take the liberty to ruin a few words of a song?

    Kahe na kahe hum
    Chehka karenge

    All in good humour :)

    A song for a song... unmutilated
    Kuch to log kahenge
    Logon ka kaam hai kehna...


    I thought mine was more a succinct, concise, brief, pertinent, crisp, laconic and sententious (I can claim that based on your response) comment than an apperceptive or incisive one.

    Farzana,
    ...and that is the main point.

    A conservative is someone who is willing to die for the beliefs a liberal cherished twenty years ago.

    A westerner is someone who "discovers" and then teaches to "heathens" what they have known since long before the self-proclaimed "discovery."

    When asked what he thought of western civilization, Gandhiji is rumored to have said "That would be a wonderful idea."

  5. Yeah, the only time I agreed with Gandhi, I think...

    Has levitation taught the West the benefits of levity?
