For laughs

A colleague R, who we all love to take a dig at for the rare gems of wisdom he occasionally throws at us, actually said these:

The discussion was about a recent cricket world cup match (Ind Vs Aus)

X: That was a super caught-and-bowled by Zaheer Khan da *machan!

R: Is that so? Was the catch taken at Point?

X: Dei, I said caught and bowled..

R: That is what da.. I asked if it was Ponting’s wicket!


Y: Planning a trip to Cochin da.

R: Yes machaan.. you must go.. Its a nice hill station..

Y: What? Its plains da, not hills..

R: Really? But when I last saw it, it was a hill station..


R is also famous for his movie reviews, just that the review is constant across the movies.. He’d genuinely call every Vijay, Ajith, Chimbu or Dhanush movie a “super padam”, worth watching with the family. What more can I say..

* a term of endearment in Tamizh to show you are pally-pally.. ‘maamu’ is one other..

See ya all next week…
