(This is definately not my own....but worth sharing.) One can say that Indian Govt is like a condom because it allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.

Warning: This movie is like LOC (remember the four hour movie?) and only the characters would be introduced in the pre-interval session. Rekha and Rajan love each other very much. And because, Rajan loves his wife a little bit more than that required for a safe and stable day-to-day existence, he

Dear Comp, You are somebody I have always wanted to own. From the day I saw you huddled up in the corner of an air-conditioned room, into which 30 of us - class nine students - were herded after being forced to remove our footwear. The day my magnanimous teachers gave

Boss: What`s up? Me: Ceiling. Boss: No, besides that. Me: My spirits. Boss: That was not very smart. Me: I agree. Boss: So what`s up? Me: The fan. Boss: Besides the fan, ceiling and your spirits...you idiot. Me: Hmm....the pealing plaster? Boss: Did not see that one coming. What is up...besides the ceiling, fan, your spirits and the pealing plaster? Me:

With nothing else to write on, I have chosen a less funny item - the bag that I take to office everyday. No, I am not going to brag about my laptop bag. Simply because, what I take to office is not a lap top bag. It is a simple "Trunk &

I had never fallen in love before I met you. And after I met you, there was no escape! You mean so much to me, my dear husband! The Husband`s reply I had never fallen in love before I met you. But now, there is no escape! You are so mean to me dear

Some say that Adam got bored and asked God to give him a companion. Some say, God wanted Adam to sacrifice his one leg and one hand at the altar, if he wanted a companion. And when Adam requested God to give him somebody for whom he will only have

Ten thousand times ten thousand in sparkling raiment bright, The armies of the ransomed saints throng up the steeps of light; `Tis finished, all is finished, their fight with death and sin; Fling open wide the golden gates, and let the victors in. - Poet unknown - - - - - - - - -

We all know that every air plane in the air has a few people with cotton in their ear. They do this to avoid the air pressure getting to them. Read more about it here Now, I have a related question...I have heard that in New York, there are buildings with

Currently there are two (or too?) many twins in our family. One of our relatives - Sandhya from Rekha`s side -gave birth to boy twins a few days back. Wonder how she is going to manage. And today morning, I got a funny message from my younger sister - A sardar had

Here are some things Rekha wants me to keep in mind this week-end i.e., when she is not here. I wonder if her absence is actually worth the fun. The list she handed over to me is being re-created verbatim - 1) Pick up the milk from the door, boil it and

In the last couple of days I have realized that Ouchmytoe readers (and that means YOU!) only like funny articles. I also have a feeling you prefer articles targeting Rekha more than anything else. So, here is a promise - will try and include Rekha in each post of mine

Though I have had my share of Holi celebrations, now it is but a faint remembrance. I am not allowed to celebrate the festival here in Tamil Nadu....they say I am a Dravidian. And it is supposed to be an Aryan spring festival. On Holi day (which incidentally was also a

Now that the Ban on Blogs has Been solved, thanks to a communication from the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (see it here), we all can get on with our lives. That is, start Blogging.Here is a quick poll to find out why you keep coming Back to Ouchmytoe. With

Japanese designers have come up with what they claim is the perfect solution for the unattached woman - the boyfriend pillow. And it is an ideal sleeping partner because it doesn't snore, hog the duvet - or sleep around. Each model comes with two shirts in blue and pink, that can

In the last few months we have been talking babies almost every day. I am so psyched by all this baby talk that as soon as my wife starts off "Our baby....," I start the baby talk myself "Gaa ..Baa...Raa ...Gaa ...Gaa." Apparently, three of her best friends - only women

Water for free? Heat can make people go crazy, especially if you own a popular electrical store in Chennai. Mahendra Bhandari, owner of Bhandari and Sons recently started leaving water cans (full of water, that is) outside of his shop. He says, he wants the passer-bys to quench their thirst. Meanwhile,

Ever tried going to the vegetable market with your wife? I did. And I should tell you that it was not worth the money, time and energy spent. The whole idea sucks. "Hope you have taken the money," she asks even before I am aware that I am being taken to

I have always wanted to become a World-renown poet. But lack of vocabulary (poets should know words that the common folk don`t understand) and lack of command over grammar (poets need to understand it fully before they can go ahead and break the rules) ensured that I would end up

Ok..Ok...this tip is only for those who missed watching Sun TV, BBC, CNN & Aaj Tak last evening...and for those that didn't read the Washinton Post, The Hindu, The Times of India, Malayalam Manorama and The Guardian, today morning. Try searching for 'Best Indian Funny Blog' on Google . If you

Rhea is now 20 months old and it has been a long journey. If I were to draw a parallel, it has been like crossing the Niagara Falls on a tight walk rope. That`s why in the last 20 months, while playing with Rhea I have always sat down on

For the last four years Rekha and I have been working from almost the same cubicle ;-) and now she is leaving. Bad. Very Bad. Here is her farewell mail. The backdrop to the mail, as can be expected, is movies..movies and more movies.... Hi all, If movies did not have endings,

Today is my last day here in Sify. When was the last time I quit a job? Been a long while...yet as far as I remember, I have never quit a job formally. This is probably the first time. When I was working as a Features Sub-Editor with The Perth Courier,

Finally! This post is to announce my arrival in Gurgaon. The city is all gur and no gaon. At about 9.15 a.m. on June 25, the pilot of the 6.15 a.m. Kingfisher Airlines from Chennai announced: "We will be reaching Delhi in the next ten minutes. The climatic temperature in

On June 17 every year, this family goes through a private ritual - they photograph themselves to stop for a fleeting moment the arrow of time passing by. The result: We can in one page see their family and its members growing (not to mention, notice the changing fashion each year).

This blog post is inspired by another blog called "Our Delhi Struggle" (Click here to check it out), where Dave & Jenny chronicle their ‘struggles` in Delhi. Guess what, Harper Collins has offered them a book deal (and when is my turn?). Their blog posts are keen insights into what

Please don't leave the answer in the Comments Box. You don't want others to know the answer and walk away with the prize...or do you? Shucks...in that case how would you convey to me that you know the answer? And that throws at us another question...what if everybody says they

Sunil Gavaskar is here. I can see him in blood and flesh. Wow! To see the man who was just about my height and kicked the shit out of the huge West Indian bowlers is a great feel. I have even recorded a few video clips in my mobile and

If I go to Google, and search for ‘Funny` among the web pages in India...this Blog gets thrown up third. Wow. Quite an achievement for this small man (read 165 cms). For proof that this is not the funniest Blog in India, Click Here

When I think of the blog ban, I wonder if we are going back in history. Didn`t somebody who lived as early as the 17th century say: "I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the very end, your right to say it." By the way,

This happened today morning. Rekha and I got up at 6 a.m. Getting up together is a relatively new habit. There used to be a time when Rekha would get up at 5.30 a.m., take bath, pray and with water dripping from her tied-in-a-turban-on-top-of-her-head hair, she would touch my lotus

Jawahar Lal Nehru said in sports participation was more important than winning. I beg to differ. Watching sports is more important than participating. Ask anybody who stays in the CAS-affected Chennai and I am sure you will see many heads nod. Some of you may place the blame on me being

Two days back my wife called me when I was in office. I said, “Rekha, I am in a meeting. Can I call you back?” “Sure.” And after ten minutes she called me again. I cut the call and messaged her that I couldn't talk since I was still in the meeting.

After managing 33 years of my life without a suit, I finally bought one a few days back. Yes! I am now a proud owner of a Giovanni suit. For you lesser mortals who have never heard of Giovanni...well, it`s an entry level suit brand that`s sold in Lifestyles and

George Bush has retained the White House. Shucks, I had gotten bored of the Bush jokes on the net and was expecting Kerry to win, so that we would have a fresh set of laughing matter. Looks like I have to contend with Bush jokes for another four years. Don`t know why
