• Run For A Reason

    Why people from different communities run the Mumbai Marathon:

    Punjus run simply because of peer pressure from other communities plus that they can upload their pics posing on the Sealink. Otherwise they rather be sleeping.

    Maharashtrians run because that day most roads are closed and BEST buses are not plying - so how else will they commute ?

    Biharis & Bhaiyas run because they feel the Maharashtrians are running behind them and they run for their lives.

    Catholics run because that's what they have been trained for since childhood - athletics or hockey or football.

    Parsis run so hopefully they can find someone on the race track and get married that same evening.

    South Indians run because of the completion certificate which they will get so that they can add this to their collection of certificates which they are collecting since childhood.

    Sindhis run because the cost includes Sealink toll charges.

    Gujjus run because the cost includes Sealink toll charges + Goody bag + Free Water + Free Enerzal + Free Oranges + Free Salt + Free Ice Pack+ Free whiffs of Volini Spray on the route.

    Marwaris run for all of the above reasons + they think they can take an interest free loan from Std. Chartered Bank (least realising Stan Chart no longer is sponsor) for their business just because they ran !

    And Bengalis don't run. They are busy analysing why others are running!
  • After God, Fear Women!

    Wife: Honey let's play a game.

    Husband: Okay. What's the game about?

    Wife: If I mention a country, you run to the left side of the room and touch the wall & if I mention a bird, you run to the right side of the room and touch the wall. If you run to the wrong direction, you'll give me all your salary for this month.

    Husband: Okay! And if you fail in your turn, I'll have your salary too right?

    Wife, smile: Yes darling!

    Husband: Okay (stands up ready to run in any direction)

    Wife: Are you ready???

    Husband: Yes ready...
    Wife: TURKEY.
    Its been 4 HOURS NOW... The Husband is still standing at the spot wondering if she meant the Country or the bird ??????? Moral lesson... After God, Fear Women!

  • When a Man Cooks!

    When a man volunteers to do the BBQ, the following chain of events is put into motion.

    1) The woman buys the food.
    2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes the dessert.
    3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill, beer in hand.
    4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three-meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.
    v Here comes the important part:

    More Routine....
    6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
    7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat.

    Important Again:

    More Routine...
    9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
    10) After eating, the woman clears the table and washes the dishes.
    And most important of all:
    11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
    12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off, and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....
