How Not To Rebrand.

So it would seem that we're about to un-brand our once beloved, now despised, city. Brilliant move, what? So much so that they're touting the old name on posters. More appropriately, brand Bangalore was the best.

Some how, Bengaluru doesn't quite cut it. And what's with the "Bengal" in the name? Stupid white peoples are bound to think we're an offshoot of the Red Brigade. Hello? We're two thousand kilometers to the South. Idjuts. But then again, we can always "Swalpa adjust maadi".

I must also congratulate Adithya Gadwale, among others, who has successfully staked his claim to a pound of flesh by squatting on Yes, it sound disgusting. And yes, he's a Cottonian.

Advertising gurus and marketing mavens who read this blog (yes, both of you!) please be telling what you be thinking...

What's Wrong With This Picture?

A little bizarre, what?

More Money Than Taste

Apparently Nikhil Gowda, son of our beloved Chief Minister, HD Kumaraswamy and grandson of our dear leader and son of the soil, HD Deve Gowda, ransacked Empire on Church Street yesterday.

His father's take? ""Bidri, makkal maadidhare... "(Just forget it, children have done.)

The ToI takes great pains to inform us that he "swerves around in the choicest of cars — Lancer, Nissan Sports, Lexus and a BMW 7-series" and a Hummer.

Money can't buy you taste. Else he'd have gone to Imperial to satisfy his munchies...

He is one of my oldest friends and this was one of his most fervent dreams.

It finally came true.

Fucking-A-Awesome dude! Hang on, we're coming!

Happy Dee-Wolly!

A very happy Diwali to all of you.

Play safe and play sober.


Jokes aren't normally done on this blog, but I couldn't resist...

How many choms does it take to change a light-bulb?

Five - one to change the bulb and four to play antakshari.

Five and Five.

Does your job suck? I awaken clients every morning, at 6am, and conduct conversations with them. Some of them are most demanding…

Today my manager said that I was not sufficiently lucid or awake, incompetent, could not make intelligible conversation and was flippant.

What do they expect at 6am, a critique of Nietzsche and Nihilism?


It's been a while...

Darshini-style fractions

This was done a few weeks ago with Abu and Garu Blade! (sic, exclamation is part of spelling and isn't punctuation), when we decided one for the road would be a tad bit much.

"Rajkumar, two by three tequila togon-baa."

Post Secret

I'm not sure how many of you read Postsecret but if you do, you may find it extremely frustrating, like I do, that you can only see the current weeks posts and there is no way of accessing the archives.

However, if you use Google Reader and you subscribe to the Atom feed, and not the Feedburner one, you can see all of the archives. Or as far down as you're willing to scroll.

Most useful really.

I Need A Super Hero Lover...

If you've been wondering why there was no 55-word linkfest this Friday, wonder no more. It's all because of Wonder Woman you see...

On Friday, the GirlFriend retrieved her stolen wallet from a crowded bus.
  • After getting down and realising that her bag was gaping wide open and flapping about near her bum.
  • After getting into an auto and saying in true Bollywood action hero style 'Uss Bus Ka Peechha KaroooOo!'
  • After getting the auto to stop in front of the bus.
  • After screaming to the crowd in English Hindi and Kannada "Take the money, but you don't know how difficult it is to get all those ID cards. I'm going to have to file an FIR because my driver's license is in there and then you'll definitely be caught when I go to the police station!"
  • After the conductor said "Aitha madam?" after her long passionate speech about debit cards and drivers licenses and being violated early in the morning.
  • After he looked at the driver and slapped his forehead and said to the people "Aiyo, whoever's taken this girl's purse, just give it back otherwise we can't move with the auto in front like this."
  • After sitting patiently on the engine of the bus, waiting for her wallet to be handed to her.
She’s been feeling most super-heroine-ish ever since!

But it doesn’t end there, she shared this story with friends and Gamesmaster G9 returned with four costume options...

"First, we have the classic - backless, strapless swimsuit, cut high on the thigh, with metallic breastplate. No?"

"Let’s try the next one - white unitard with low slung belt and a large circle cut out of it so that your entire cleavage is visible. Still no?"

"Well, here's one you would love. Very short top and tiny handkerchief masquerading as a skirt. Perfect if job involves flying. You don't like it?"

"Ah well, this one might be for you. Full body armour, with mask and hair tied in neat ponytail. Metal gauntlets and a staff for protection. The cigarette is not included. Perfect, methinks. You are now MANHUNTER!"

I'm rooting for Option No. 4

Jobless Pics

Seen at the Drunch-ed place.

The Style award.

New Virus?

Saw these on our class mailing list today. Presumably it's some new kind of embarrassment virus.



And it gets murkier!
