In that path blooding, I swear

Boris Becker: "I just can't believe ... that I can think of nothing to say." (on a large billboard in Bombay -- quoted from memory, may not be verbatim but is pretty close).

Rahul Dravid: "I can't think of anything to say." (on the website).

Both speaking about Aamby Valley City. And I'm wondering: it's an endorsement, an endorsement worthy of being splashed on enormous billboards, that these guys can think of nothing to say?

"Remove outer packing before consumption."

Message printed on the plastic that covers individual Britannia cheese slices. Lucky they told us, but wish I had read it earlier. This plastic tastes horrible.

Sign on a vacant plot in Sion: "This plot belongs to Mihir Madgavkar."

Another sign on same vacant plot in Sion: "Simplified Society: Mihir Madgavkar is expelled by Simplified Society."

Gola shop in Matunga has, among many others, these flavours available: Row Mango, Trapik Jam.

I tried the Row Mango. Dismal. Foul. Very green, bright fluorescent green.

Nearby milkshake shop has, among many others, these flavours available: Bunty Babli, Jelly Milly.

Still suffering the green effects of the Row Mango, I resisted these.

Seen On Tshirts Dept, considerable trouble to get these just for you so please appreciate:

"Mon Fyer. Mon en Goolam"

"All Livers are Evil and Should be Punished"

"Season all the winter Seasion the many game were started in that time many injuries in that path blooding."

The Amby Valley thing reminds me of the publisher's blurb thing - where the reviewer says "this book was not in the slightest bit brilliant" and its written as "...brilliant..". So I think that Becker and whoever actually couldn't thinkof anything ot say because the whole thing was so vile.

n!

/Livers are not evil at all. Kidneys, on the other hand....

//Mon en goolam? That's the Martian equivalent of "yo mama's so ugly...."
