Who Are You? (Humor From Nether Lands)

Humor in Tamizh mags are normally pathetic. It’s a wonder how they get published at all. For all that, they make it up handsomely when it comes to topical humor. It’s usually creative in concept and funny and unsparing in content. Examples: recent hike in bus fares, some political leader changing his affiliation, water shortage, etc. etc.

Here’s one sure to draw a chuckle:

(English translation included)

A vadivelu 1

A vadivelu 2

Clearly national parties still have a lot of ground to cover in the Dravidian country to gain a fair assessment, if ever.

What Are Wives Like…

A ‘must’ read before you walk down the isle:

619-08608775

अभीअभी बीवी के हाथ से घर की मेज पर रखा फूलदान गिर कर टूट गया,
फिर मुझे पता चला कि फूलदान फिछले तीन सालों से मैंने ही गलत जगह पर रखा था।

 

Just now, the flower vase, tipped (inadvertently) by the lady of the house, fell off the table and broke into pieces. That’s when I learnt I was keeping the vase not at its right place for the last three years.

‘Let There Be No Light,’ He said. So, It Was (Wasn’t)

thesun.co.uk drunk

It had been a rather difficult day for them.

They retreated to where they usually did when overwhelmed with the feeling of not being equal to the world out there. Thank god (!) for these islands of solace where they let one lick one’s hurts and wounds undisturbed, unhurriedly and unwatched, and often magically transform, however briefly, sorry losers into bristling winners.

Like all good things, this too had to end.

Making their way out, somehow going astray, they found themselves passing by the gates of a shrine.

A booming voice from inside stopped them dead in their tracks, admonishing:

‘Ye sinners, how much more would you do…’

They looked at each other.

The voice kept up: ‘…alcohol, gambling, women…’, pausing for effect.

‘Who is talking to us?’

The taller of them peered inside.

‘Oh, it’s a guy in white robes.’

‘Why is he talking to us? We said nothing to him.’

‘It’s not just us, there’s a whole bunch seated before him.’

‘Why are they letting him insult…instead of grabbing him by his neck and throwing him out?’

‘How would I know?’

The man in robes resumed: ‘There’s only so much god puts up with…’ pausing again.

The penny then dropped for the taller one: ’Oh, he’s a godman, a preacher.’

The shorter wondered: ‘It’s a mystery to me…why doesn’t he show up if had a message for us instead of…’

He was rudely interrupted in his reverie when the man in robes thundered: ‘And when that happens, there’s hide and heart to pay. Begins with light being snatched away from your eyes…yes. You go blind…’

And there it happened with a flash and a pop.

Seconds later, the taller yelped: ‘Man, I’ve gone blind, can’t see a thing.’

The shorter joined: ‘Oh, no, me too…it’s all so unfair…to pull our sights out…just like that without a word or warning…’

The taller was one with his friend. ‘You’re right. How’re we to know how much is ‘so much’?’

The shorter speculated: ‘Is this man god himself in disguise?’

Just then someone bumped into the two.

The shorter recovered his poise and consoled the offender who also appeared to be not seeing: ‘No use making haste, now, mate. What’s done is already done…I mean ‘so much’ that you have already piled up to your (dis)credit…’

‘Move aside, will you, idiots,’ hissed the figure, ‘Need to get there, I’m the electrician here.’

What Are Husbands Like?

A must-read before you say ‘I do’:

Pair-Of-Coffee-Mugs-Wedding-Anniversary-Gifts-For-Husband Styles At Life

The first morning after the honeymoon, the husband got up early, went down to the kitchen, and brought his wife her breakfast in bed. Naturally, she was delighted.

Then he spoke: “Have you noticed just what I have done?”

“Of course, dear. Every single detail!”

“Good. That’s how I want my breakfast served every morning.”
