Its Chaitime Folks... Say Cheese... !!!

I am writing this post after nearly 12 hours of unscheduled 'power outage'... which even continued 'smoothly' throughout the night... courtesy the perpetual 'maintenance work' undertaken by our 'ever vigilant and customer friendly' KEB (Karnataka Electricity Board.) Therefore, I assume that you are perfectly able to understand and empathize with all the thoughts racing through and crossing my mind at the moment. And the urgent need to focus on more 'pleasant' things/thoughts.

btw... I recently read about our people's representatives (yes, the ones who go by the mantra: 'Government's work is God's work') plans of imposing a 'flood tax' on us... poor unsuspecting souls. So, whenever any part of this land is experiencing the entirely unwelcome phenomenon of "water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink"... be aware that your wallet too will decide to lose weight. To remain 'healthy and wise'... by bidding goodbye to 'wealthy'. Afterall, 'kuch paane ke liye kuch khona padta hai'. What... ??? Looks like our 'Movers and Shakers' who strongly believe... 'mere trees should not be allowed to impede the progress of 'development'... may have developed a collective dislike for the song 'Tip Tip barsa paani'. Next, they may recommend the popular nursery rhyme "Rain Rain go Away" to be elevated to the status of the national anthem.

Anyways, I finally decided to cool off by reading a few jokes. Let me share some with you too...

1. "It's clear" said the teacher, "That you haven't studied geography. What's your excuse?"
Pupil: "Well, my dad says the world is changing every day. So I decided to wait until it settles down."

2. A man was fishing. After a while another angler came to join him.
"Have you had any bites?" asked the second man.
"Yes, lots," replied the first one, "but they were all mosquitoes."

3. What do you call a neutron that has been around for a while?
An oldtron.

4. Dentist: Just let me finish and you will be another man after these cosmetic procedures.
Patient: Okay doc, but don't forget to send your bill to the other man.

5. Salesman: Would you like to buy a pocket calculator?
Customer: No, thanks. I know how many pockets I have.

6. Teacher: Sunny, put some more water in the fish tank.
Pupil: Why, Miss? I put some in yesterday and he hasn’t drunk that yet!

7. A customer was asked to send a copy of her defective diskettes to the technician.
A few days later, a letter arrived from the customer along with photocopies of her diskettes!

8. Teacher: How can you commit so many mistakes in a single day?
Pupil: I got up early today.

9. Jenny looked up from the book on ancient history she was reading and asked her father, "Dad, what's a millennium?"
"Well," he muttered, "I think it's something like a centennial, only it has more legs."

10. John: If I had five coconuts and I gave you three, how many would I have left?
Jackie: I don't know.
John: Why not?
Jackie: In our school we do all our arithmetic in apples and oranges.

11. Customer: Waiter, waiter! There's a mosquito in my soup.
Waiter: Don't worry Sir, mosquitoes have very small appetites!

12. Customer: Waiter, there's a fly in my soup!
Waiter: Couldn't be, Sir. The cook used them all in the raisin bread.

And here's some 'Mind Chow'... you know 'food for thought'... so that your mind will stay in shipshape, with just the right amount of wisdom. *wink!*

1. Don't go through life, GROW through life.
2. Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
3. The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle.
4. Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
5. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
6. Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
7. Without education we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously.
8. Boredom is lack of creativity, not lack of options.
9. Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.
10. Appearances are but a glimpse of what is hidden inside.
11. You'll never be bored if you can create your own problems.
12. Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor.
