Headlines : 23rd May , Tuesday

Another sultry day in the North. Things got so warm that Sachin drank 4 bottles of Pepsi back-to-back………….and he wasn’t even shooting a commercial !!!

Did you watch the Karan Thapar interview with HRD Minister Arjun Singh yesterday? Man…..it was a massacre. It was like watching a badly shot episode of ‘Yes Minister’ on BBC. To be fair, I am sure that Jim Hacker would have done much better at stalling than Arjun Singh did. Pathetic.

In spite of the fact that he pushed Arjun Singh into a corner and exposed his lack of integrity, Karan Thapar said that he was disappointed with the ultimate outcome of the interview. His words were – ” Yeah…..it was alright……..but I sooooo wanted to make him cry……..but he just wouldn’t……maybe I have gotten too used to guests crying like kids on my show”.

A black day in the history of the Sensex. In the first session yesterday, it dropped over 1000 points !!!!. There were more bears at the Stock market than you could find at Alaska during the salmon season.

<!– D([“mb”,”Michael Douglas faces every night with Catherine Zeta Jones.

Sports news. A bitter blow for the West Indians\’ chances for winning the
Test series against India. Sachin Tendulkar will NOT be going there after
he failed a fitness test.

The CBSE results are out today. In Tamil Nadu, the overall pass percentage
has slipped when compared to last year. Now, this must be really worrying
for the parents. Their kids are not even good at copying correctly from the
student sitting in front of them anymore………

It was the 15th Death Anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi yesterday. Congress party
members everywhere in the country offered floral tributes to his Portraits
and touched his feet and sought his blessings. I dont think Rajiv would
have been all that comfortable with that………..you know, since that is
exactly what got him into trouble 15 years ago.

Do you know the plot of the next Jackie Chan movie? Its about how an FBI
agent secretly takes home valuable data concerning 25 million US veterans
in his hard disk. As expected, the villains come in and knock him out and
steal the diskette. Now, the FBI is after the thieves and they need Jackie
Chan to help them nab the culprits before its too late. Sounds stupid
doesn\’t it?
The bad news : This actually happened yesterday . Not a movie. And the FBI
dont need Jackie Chan – at least thats what they are hoping……….
:-))))
“,1] ); //–>Yesterday, the Sensex was behaving erratically. It started by going up – then totally down -then up again a bit- only to come down since it couldn’t sustain itself at higher levels for long………..somewhat similar to the problem that Michael Douglas faces every night with Catherine Zeta Jones.

  2. I am planning to start ‘The Vice President’ where the particpants, as they cross each stage have to shoot the ass, with greater accuracy each time, of somebody higher up in the political ladder. The candidate who nitches the president’s butt, becomes the vice president.
