Overheard

Two girls hunched over a crossword puzzle in the bus …

Girl 1: The clue for the next word is ‘State of Uncertainty’. Number of letters are..

Girl 2: I know. The answer is ‘Love’.

Girl 1: No silly. It’s 5 letters. And the answer is ‘Limbo’.

(Me: 😀 😀 )

 

 

Eh, what?

” Service Only Old Bricks Bats”

Someone decode that for me please.

At work..

I was cleaning up my communicator contact list, removing some folks and adding some, grouping them by team functions.

After a while, I sat back to look at the final list. From one particular team, there were Hills, and Brooks and a Moor(e) staring back at me.

I admit I was grinning away for a full five minutes after that.

Shatranj ke Khiladi

*This post is my attempt to put in words what I saw. A bird’s eye view pitcure would have been a zillion times better, but couldn’t be clicked. Read and imagine, is all I can say.

I was in an auto navigating it’s way through a very notorious crossroad near my office. It is famous for lack of traffic constables and traffic signals, and hence occurrence of nasty traffic snarls with vehicles of all sizes crossing in all directions. Yesterday, at the core of one such snarl was a van/sumo, owned by some company and with the brand name marked on the side. This van was surrounded on all sides by autos, cars, buses, 2-wheelers and was both the reason of the snarl and an effect of it. It couldn’t move forward due to traffic in 1 direction and couldn’t backout due to traffic in the other direction. Couldn’t move right or left because of traffic in other 2 perpendicular directions. If there was a gap and the van tried to make it, someone else cut it off. The van had nowhere to go.

Got the scene in your mind? Here’s the clincher.

The logo on the side of the van was ‘CHECKMATE’.

Some original jokes, sent your way for a mid-week dose of cheer.

What did the geek name his two pet tabbies?

Tab and Alt-Tab

Joe (glumly): I have got an elephant of a memory.
Frank: You mean, you’ve got the memory of an elephant.
Joe: No, I’ve got an elephant of a memory. It is huge, grey and difficult to get a grip on.

Laugh. It is obligatory.

   

This latest signboard had me grinning all the way from the moment I saw the hoarding to until 5 minutes later when I entered a shop and had to shut my trap or risk being thought daft.

I just love the guys at Amul who think this up.

More mushrooms

“Dene waala jab bhi deta, deta chappar phaad ke” /
“When God/the giver gives, he gives much beyond one could imagine.”

From the last week I was craving to eat mushrooms. Then we had invited people over for dinner, so I cooked a lovely (even if I say so 😉 )mushroom sabji in huge quantities on Saturday. Which was not finished so we ate it on Sunday. Then Sunday night we went to an italian place whose mushroom ravioli I had loved the last time and ordered again. That makes two days of mushrooms.

Monday morning at lunch hour: I take my usual serving of the soup-of-the-day. While paying, I ask, which is today’s soup?

Mushroom soup!!

I was giggling away for the next 10 minutes.
