DEMOCRACY IS NO JOKE

Someone pointed out to me that there are not many good jokes that are neither sexist nor racist. Does that mean that, if you plug in democracy, the world is a less funny place?

A NORMAL T-SHIRT SLOGAN

Now that a generation of T-Shirts that proclaim how special or how we don’t care or how we possess oodles of unnecessary attitude have been around, I guess it’s time to bring back the T-Shirt with the caption “I am normal – no pretense and no presumptions”. Something tells me it’ll sell well.

THE ONE WHO CAN BE YELLED AT
 
One of the most important facets of a relationship is “YELLING AT EACH OTHER”. Once you are in your mid-twenties, the number of people you are allowed to yell at, rapidly approaches zero. You can’t yell at your parents – you are not a kid anymore. You can’t yell at co-workers or friends – you are not a jerk. So, it just seems to me that mid-twenties is the time most people look for serious relationship/marriage to fill the sub-conscious need to keep yelling at someone.

SLANG OUTSOURCED

This is directed to those urban kids in India that watch American Sitcoms, comedy shows, dramas and reality TV or eat at McDonalds and think they know enough America to use American slang in their daily conversations. If you haven’t visited the loo in a trans-Atlantic flight, you may please stop pretending.

TEENAGE BLUES

One of the main decisions agonizing today's kids is whether to let your parents be friends with you on Facebook. How come I haven't seen any pop-ups recommending some treatment for this kind of anxiety?

THE VIRTUE OF SELFISHNESS

Of all human virtues, selfishness pays quite well – just that we don’t admit it often.

LESSONS FROM HISTORY

If history has taught us something, it is that we can make humans believe in anything.
